As a 31 year old unexperienced learner who has always dreamt of playing the piano, I could not be more thrilled with my instruction and learning from Tom! His enthusiasm for the piano and love for teaching shine strongly through his amicable, yet diligent persona. Working as a full-time as a RN in the pediatric emergency department, while also currently attending graduate school in Syracuse, Tom has been and continues to be flexible and willing to accommodate my hectic schedule (which is truly saying something). I feel more than comfortable in his home, as he is extremely hospitable. However, those wishing to learn from the comfort of their own home should know that he is also willing to travel. Tom's rates for piano lessons are comparable and competitive. I could not imagine getting any better of a lesson for the price and experience! Whether you have any experience or not, I think that Tom is an exquisite instructor that should not be passed up when looking to learn or enhance your piano knowledge and experience!

Tom is a very thorough and careful teacher. I am a 22-year-old student who's been taking piano lessons for a year before starting with him. He is not afraid to be critical; his critiques and assignments motivate me to practice and be serious about learning. My technique has improved a great deal since starting with Tom and I have been playing with confidence. I highly recommend this experienced and fair instructor with reasonable prices.

My two sons began piano lessons with Tom when they were six and nine. After two and a half years, I am thrilled with their progress. They will both be testing at the Royal Conservatory's Level 4 in six months. Tom knows how to keep lessons fun while motivating the children to work hard. He is patient and sets expectations based on a student's ability. If you are serious about piano, Tom is the teacher for you!

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.

Michael is an excellent teacher. Highly knowledgable and skilled, friendly, patient, and attentive to the needs of the student. I'm an older beginner on the violin, and after his lessons I feel much more confident about my practice and musical ambitions.

Michael was a great teacher. Helped me a lot finding and correcting my bad habits and really pushed me to improve myself and re-awaken my interest in the violin. I enjoyed our lessons.

I love music and always wanted to learn piano. I got to know Kristen through Thumbtack and started learning piano in June. It's been amazing, Kristen is really easy to work with, she is flexible about schedule and her teaching is awesome. The best part is she sees to it that you get the things right and perfect, makes you understand in easy manner. I love to learn piano with Kristen and always look forward for my piano lessons with her.

Kristen ensures that your vocal lessons are completely tailored to your vocal ability and goals. She makes it an enjoyable process; very encouraging. Kristen is ready to "work" right at the scheduled time and gives you a full hour sharing her expertise and experience. I always leave feeling good about the progress I made with clear instructions (homework) on how to improve. An excellent vocal coach!

My gift to myself piano lessons. More than 2 years ago I started working with Steve and he is gifted and receptive to adult learning. He challenges me but without creating stress. I can play the piano and enjoy my lessons. I'm amazed at the way Steve individualizes his approach to meet my needs.

Steve is such a great teacher! I did not expect my daughter to learn so quickly or to look forward to her piano lessons as much as she does. Steve is very flexible, punctual and works excellent with children. I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends.

When I was looking for a piano teacher I had two basic criteria: (1) must work well with adults, and (2) have no expectations for the speed of my learning, thus put no pressure on me. Beata Golec, PhD. matched these two criteria plus more. Having lessons with Beata is a fun experience. Besides being able to explain different playing techniques, she explains music history and theory and how it influences the piece I’m studying. This knowledge adds to my overall enjoyment and understanding. I am also amazed by her ability to look at a piece of music and immediately understand its nuances. If you want to learn more than “merely mechanics” of playing the piano, Beata is the person to learn from. In addition to being a great teacher, she is a delightful person to spend an hour with.

Beata Golec is one of the most talented pianists I have ever heard. She has a wonderful stage presence, and her playing ability is astonishing. She makes what she does look easy. She is excellent with any sort of instrumental accompaniment, but I think she shines the most when she performs solo. She plays Bach with as much ease and beauty as she could performing Shoenberg. Her scope of knowledge is breathtaking. It is a pleasure to listen to her, and it is an honor to know her as a friend.

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.

Rhonda Fischer the quintessential musician extraoridinare,who is an alumna of Eastman School ,is my piano teacher. She imparts her knowledge and talent with enthusiasm,sincerity and intelligence. Her musical instruction is inspiring,educational and splendid fun. To enter the musical world of Rhonda Fischer is to be enlighted. Her exuberance is infectious.

Rhonda Fischer instructed my son in piano for several years. She has the winning combination of technical expertise and a friendly manner that allows kids to feel special and engaged in the learning process. As parents, it is helpful for a teacher to understand kids, and Rhonda has that ability to connect with children. I recommend Rhonda for piano; theory, practice, and composition are all in her wheelhouse.

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 :)

I took piano lessons as a child, and began again when I retired. Jamilya is an amazing pianist with experience teaching all ages. She both encourages and challenges me to improve. I can choose what I want to play, but take suggestions from her. I highly recommend Jamilya.

I have known Jon Seiger for 12 years and have hired him numerous times to perform for us. His outstanding musical talent on both Trumpet and piano, plus his vocals on many songs, including his authentic imitation of Louis Armstrong, are second to none. Couple his talent with his outgoing personality and his extreme knowledge of the early years of music, and you have a dynamite package. Jon is one of the very best.

Jon is a true professional He was prompt and ready to play 10 minutes prior to our agreed upon start time. He sang everything we asked for in advance as well as some surprises that we sprung upon him at the party. His mastery of the piano is first rate and his dialogue with stories of life on the road with the likes of Tony Bennett and Johnny Winter were very entertaining. He even brought a drummer free of charge. We will definitely have Jon back in the summer for our big summer outside bash.
