Jack is brilliant! Working through a song that I loved, we identified what I knew, what I wanted to know, and what I didnt even know I wanted to know. I wanted motivation to keep working on music and someone with a LOT of knowledge to teach me and how I could grow and get better. Jack provided that and I appreciate his teaching style and enthusiasm. I would recommend to any student who wants to learn not just about piano but about what makes great music beautiful and great musicians inspirational.

Frequently asked questions

What's your favorite music? What do you want to accomplish? How can I help you get there? Those are the key quesitons. I focus lessons around the music a student really loves, building learning through that music. 

Doctorate, Music Composition (Yale School of Music)


I started teaching my friends in High School, I was the sort of music nerd. I'd teach them how to play their favorite music by listening, breaking it down, communicating it, building it up. 

All ages, from 4 years old to retirees. 

We visited St. Mary's Church in NYC, where I used yto play the organ for services. We were surprised they were hosting a sofar event there - an impromptu concert. I was there with my wife and daughter; it was a beautiful way to revisit a place from eariler in my life, and think about how things both change and stay the same, and how music remains so important in everyone's lives. 

Find a teacher you connect with, and who will work from music you care about, as opposed to a rigid pedagogical system.

Just two - what's your favorite music ( a few songs) and what would you like to be able to do, musically, in say, six to eight months.
