At 32, I have taken piano lessons in one form or another since I was 6 years old from multiple teachers both privately and as part of a school. Tom Harris is, without a doubt, the best I have studied under. He is positive, patient, focused quality and continual improvement. His depth of knowledge in classical piano is amazing and he truly loves his art and cares for his students. Mr. Harris receives my highest recommendation.
We have been taking piano lessons from Mr. Wheatley for about 4 months. Overall it has been a great experience. He has a casual air but is a stickler with technique. Mr. Wheatley's style is a good fit for someone who is put off by the formality of many classical piano teachers but want to learn classical piano. We would recommend his services without hesitation.
I had my 1st piano lesson with Christin. I have previous experience and she took that into consideration when assigning new pieces and making me feel comfortable. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her.
She is providing piano lessons to my 5 and 7 year old sons. She interacts well with them, they enjoy it and she is good about explaining their progress and goals after each lesson.
In the two years I studied from Rhonda I learned more about the piano than I had in my previous eight years of piano lessons. Not only did she help me to improve my technical abilities but my expressive abilities as well. She pushed me to improve my skills and never allowed me to plateau, always pushing me on to something that would continue to challenge me as an artist. I would recommend her to anyone. She is truly passionate about music, which makes her an even better instructor.
From the minute Gena walked through the door, I knew we were a perfect fit. Her mix of linear and creative approaches to teaching piano has helped me grow as a musician and thinker. She finds ways to make small chat in-between informative instruction which helps the student's mind digest all the new musical material. Gena is a genuine person and knowledgable teacher who I would recommend to anyone :)
Karen has been teaching piano lessons to my daughter for almost three years now. I am extremely impressed on how patient Karen is with the children. She goes above and beyond to make the student feel comfortable and enjoy the love of learning! We are very grateful to have found such an amazingly talented teacher. I highly recommend Karen Bloch!
My daughter wouldn’t sing during the first lesson. However, I believe she will warm-up and break out of her shell. I believe he is an amazing singer and piano player and I recommend him to anyone who wants to learn to sing and/or piano.
I have two children at Rochester Academy of Music & Art (RAMA) taking piano and voice for over two years. It's been a wonderful experience, motivating, rewarding and creative. Our family has taken lessons with several schools and teachers in the area and we are happy to call RAMA our music home now. From logistical help to flexibility to high level instruction and skilled musicians, we have found everything we need at RAMA.
SCOTT TESTIMONIAL 2015 I swore off music lessons after a bad experience in high school. My piano teacher insisted that I participate in a recital for family & friends and gave me a Mozart slow movement to play. I could get through it, but I could not play it the way I knew it should be played and my teacher did not give me special instructions to help me learn the ornaments like trills and turns. During the recital, I came to the first trill and froze. It was humiliating & I swore to never play another note--though I loved music and felt a deep loss. Listening to music became painful because I was convinced that I had no talent and would never be able to play pieces that I loved. Many years later after I retired, a piano was left to me when a relative died. After staring at it warily for several months, I decided to try again and found a teacher who gave me Hanon exercises, a metronome and beginner pieces. But, my playing experience was frustrating despite diligent practice. My hands seemed to be stuck in first gear, and I could only play slow pieces from memory. All that changed when my piano tuner suggested that I contact Scott Johnson. I checked out his website, saw Juilliard and Columbia in his resume and wondered if he would take on a relative beginner with my issues. It turned out that he works with people at all levels, and progress happened faster than I expected from the start because he brought such a wealth of materials & techniques--as though he had the resources of an entire conservatory in his back pocket. In my first lessons with Scott, we threw out the Hanon and he exposed me to an amazing new world of music: Liszt's fingering for chords, Phillipp's exercises to develop a "quiet hand" and independence of the fingers, Abby Whiteside's discoveries about positioning yourself to play without reaching for notes, and so much more--a rich mixture of wonderful music matched to exercises for developing technique culled from the lineage of master teachers. For example, something by Beethoven is combined with exercises by his student Carl Czerny--so we have this amazing window through Czerny on how to approach Beethoven's music. I suddenly realized that a lot of what held me back was fixable. After only a few weeks, my small hands were stretched enough to reach a 9th when I had barely been able to reach an octave. And he gave me music that I never dreamed I would be able to play. Things that seemed impossible, became possible because he gave me fingering that worked for my hands and showed me strategies for learning a piece more efficiently than my old method of playing it through a thousand times until my fingers learned it by rote. And theory is included in the lessons. So, I'm playing the music I love with more understanding of the musical ideas that are so compelling to my ear. Scott's wonderful teaching approach and his uncanny ability to find just the right exercises and strategies to help you through the hard stuff will have you excited about playing--and practicing--because he shows you exactly what to aim for and you can see the progress. No matter what your level, he will take you further than you expected. He's the best teacher I have had by far.
John is wonderful! We are very happy with his service.

I teach all ages focusing on the beginning student. I use appropriate games and theory to help make the lesson fun. I offer affordable and negotiable rates for parents with more than one child.
My expertise as an educator is coupled with my experience as a performer. Continuous practice of my art allows me to constantly broaden my knowledge of the instrument, and pass that knowledge of to my students.
I am a highly qualified piano instructor with over 30 years of teaching experience. Education: BA in piano pedagogy and performance and BS in music education.
I have a master's degree from the Eastman School of Music in jazz performance. I developed and directed the jazz program at Roberts Wesleyan College. I have been employed as a professional jazz pianist since 1970. I am also a skilled piano tuner.
With over 10 years of teaching experience, I work in my student's home to teach piano. I use the best books I find from the current market and supplement with my own added tools.
Lessons are tailored to the individual needs and performance preferences, not according to a predetermined formula or commercial program so as to give the student personal value.
Most of the students I work with are successful. All it takes is a little personal attention to find where a student struggles and a way to help them succeed.
I have the experience and education to bring out the musician in you! I have been a musician for 17 years, plus I earned my Master of Arts degree from The College at Brockport.
I have taught private lessons in my home for over 2 decades. I play the piano, viola, and violin. I was educated at the Eastman School of Music in Rochester, NY. I enjoy teaching all ages and have experience with classroom teaching also. I am flexible with hours of availability.
