Highly successful eLearning Piano Teacher. I am a long time professional musician located in Chicago. I have studied piano with Herman Shapiro at DePaul University and Malcolm Hamilton at USC in Los Angeles. I am presently a school Music Teacher for PreK through 8th grade.
It is a joy to teach! I love sharing my passion for music and piano with these “little Mozart’s!” It is amazing to see students grow week by week under my tutelage. It’s a relationship, and learning is easy in a “one on one” experience. I currently have 20 students in my studio. We have a yearly recital in the Spring where each student can show their talents and what they have learned throughout the year. Students range in age from 7 years to 15, though I also have 3 adult learners.
Scott is an incredibly skilled teacher. Our daughter (8) started remote piano lessons (via Zoom) with him a few months ago. She had never played the piano and did not read music. As of today, she is beginning to read music and is playing recognizable songs. Not only is a a great piano teacher, but even via Zoom he fosters a wonderful student/teach relationship. I highly recommend him!
As an adult student, Scott is completely in touch with my needs, motivating and encouraging me dispite my busy work schedule. I've had the pleasure of working with Scott for several years now and can highly recommend him as an instructor!
As an adult student not having ANY knowledge or experience with reading music, I really appreciated Scott’s patience and very supportive approach. He always made me feel good about my progress..made learning fun and most importantly, because of him, I never felt like giving up. He’s an awesome instructor!!
Scott is super talented and great with kids. His love and passion for music is inspiring and he is very motivating for the kids to improve. He has a great ability to see the strengths in each child and play to those strengths in the lessons. My daughter excelled while taking piano and voice lessons from Scott and he gave my son a love and appreciation for music when he initially wasn’t even interested in lessons. Scott is kind, patient and has a great sense of humor. He is reliable and trustworthy and I would recommend him to any family looking for quality piano and voice lessons.
