Sam has been absolutely phenomenal in helping me understand music theory and improving my performance at the piano. For context, I had no musical background and was self-taught for about 5 months before I decided to commit to getting help. I am glad I did. Sam has made me more comfortable with playing around the keyboard and guiding my learning with resources and his experience. He can simplify concepts, give practical feedback, and communicate with a complete beginner. He is patient during sessions and responds to questions via email outside of lessons. From my experience, if you are a beginner seeking online piano lessons, Sam will help you where you are at.

Details: 26 - 44 years old • Yes, the student can read music • No formal training; some self-taught experience • Classical • Yes, the student has a keyboard • 30 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Sam is a wonderful piano teacher. I started remote lessons as almost a complete beginner and he has really helped me to progress rapidly in my piano playing. Sam is very knowledgeable and explains everything very clearly. His lessons include great practical tips and advice on improving difficult passages. I always look forward to our lessons and feel excited to make steady progress on more advanced pieces. I particularly appreciated that Sam took time before our lessons started to understand what kind of music I was most interested in learning and then suggested really good introductory level music books with pieces that are interesting and beautiful even for adult learners.

Details: 45 - 64 years old • No, the student cannot read music • No formal training • Classical • Yes, the student has a piano • 45 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Sam is a great musician and teacher. He took his time to listen and understand the kind of music I love and my goal of learning and provided personalized lesson plan. He always carefully listen to my questions and provide constructive feedback and techniques for practicing. He would brilliantly point out things in music that I didn't notice. His encouragements made me more confident to continue learning piano. He would go above and beyond to make sure I have what I need for practicing. I could not wish for a better piano teacher!

Details: 26 - 44 years old • Yes, the student can read music • 0 - 2 yrs of formal training • Classical • Yes, the student has a piano • 45 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

Sam is an excellent piano teacher. We have had the experience of music teachers before with my older kids and can I tell you that our experience with Sam for our youngest supersedes all the experiences. First and foremost, your child will be valued and Sam will create a connection that will engage and challenge your child. You want your child to enjoy playing piano not to see it as a chore that being said, Sam is the teacher for you if that is your objective.

Details: Younger than 6 years old • No, the student cannot read music • No formal training • Pop • Yes, the student has a piano • 30 minutes • My home, venue, etc.

Sam is such an incredible teacher. He’s patient and knowledgeable. He knows how to set up the pace for the lessons to make them enjoyable and is quick to adapt if he sees if are struggling with a song. I learn so much from Sam and definitely recommend him as a teacher to anyone wanting to learn piano.
