I was a little nervous hiring a piano instructor online without having any past reviews, but it was the best thing I've done. I am 25 years old and have zero knowledge of a piano. All I knew was it had black and white keys and I wanted to learn how to play it. After the first lesson with C.J., I can look at a piano and identify every key and can show you all the different cords. That may not seem like a lot but for knowing nothing it was a huge step for me. Within the first lesson I was able to read sheet music, something Ive tried to learn before but could never quite grasp the concept of. C.J. was able to break it down in a way that turned on the 'light bulb' for me. By the end of my first lesson I was looking at sheet music and then playing the notes on the piano. It was awesome! Its one thing to learn how to play but C.J helped me understand music, which made it so much easier and more fun for me. Not only is C.J. a wizard of the piano, his stories of the people he has taught and played with is worth it in itself. I would highly recommend C.J. to anybody wanting to learn to play the piano. From someone like myself that knew literally nothing about a piano to someone whose been playing for years. This guy is just that good!!!
