Piano Lessons (for adults)
I've had six lessons with Jeffrey so far, and I'm getting SO much out of them. He's an inspiring pianist, a boundless resource of musical knowledge, and a motivating teacher, while still being tirelessly friendly and patient. So far we've worked mostly on jazz basics, music theory understanding, and the beginnings of improvisation technique, but I'm confident that Jeffrey can help me keep learning along whatever path I take with my musicianship. I feel incredibly lucky to have made this connection, and I'd highly recommend working with Jeffrey.Feb 27, 2017Verified
I wanted to learn how to improvise better after having played classical piano for 8 years. After a few lessons Im getting really comfortable! Jeffrey works at my pace, and provides examples from the greats of jazz music to inform how I ought to think about scales, intervals, and improvisation. Great teacher and I cant wait for more.Sep 9, 2015Verified
Jeffrey is an outstanding piano teacher! I have been taking lessons with him for around a year and a half, and over that time I have grown a ton as a piano player; he has patiently taught me numerous aspects of jazz piano theory, helped me improve my piano technique tremendously, and guided me to mastery on many pieces in different musical styles (jazz, classical, jewish, and more). He is a knowledgable in many different areas of piano, and music in general, and strikes a great balance between pushing you to learn through theory + technique and having fun learning new songs + improvising.Aug 13, 2014Verified
Music Composition Lessons
It was really great taking lessons with Jeffrey! After being self taught most of my life, I noticed a huge improvement in my playing abilities over a few short months. He also tailored the lessons to my interests and helped me write compositions in a way where I understood the theory. I feel confident enough to learn difficult pieces on my own nowNov 16, 2017Verified
I am so glad I found Jeffrey. He is flexible enough to tailor the lessons to my goals. There is a wonderful blend of supportiveness and pushing me to do better. He is just a marvelous teacher. After I had been taking lessons with him for a year my wife was so impressed that she started taking lessons with him too.Jul 20, 2017Verified
