We offer private piano lessons for adults and children ages 5 and up. All levels accepted. Lessons are given in my West Orange home. We teach Jazz, rock pop, show tunes, what ever you like, up to the professional level. I have been teaching piano over 25 years. I also taught elementary school music, grades K - 8. You can learn how to read music as well as chords for creating your own styles, and how to use a Fake Book.I perform. Most teachers will claim they have experience teaching, as do I. I also have experience performing. Not all piano teachers perform. This does make a difference! Knowing how to play recreationally, and how to play to please an audience are two different skills. I feel it's best to know both (and even if you are only playing for your own enjoyment, this will still help).I play other instruments. It is important, or at the very least extremely helpful, for a pianist to know what is going on in the whole music world, not just with pianos. I will show you not just to play, but to perform - and not just as a pianist, but as a complete musician.
