About this pro

How does your business stand out?

I create a long-lasting teacher-student relationship with all of my students. I have many young students who have started at 4 or 5 years of age, and continue to this day as they finish high school. I also have many adults in the schedule who have been taking for several years or longer.

What do you enjoy about the work you do?

I enjoy seeing students learn a deft and complicated skill as well as watching all of them progress and mature.

    Look No Further! This is your piano & music teacher!
    JD has been an excellent piano teacher to both of my kids for over 8 years! He comes to our house, he is fun & personable and is an excellent musician with diverse knowledge & experience, and a great teacher. He is sensitive to the learning styles of my kids and knows just how adjust his expectations so that they are challenged and still find piano "playing" a joy! I can honestly say, I could not ask for more that what he already offers us already. My kids are well on their way to being great pianist, musically literate and playful composers!

    Can be loud and aggressive. Started off well, but when we decided to end lessons became very rude. Did not like our experience at all. In my opinion he doesn't work well with teens.

    Curiously, ThomaStudios was never contacted nor had a client by this name. This smacks of a planted negative review. There are currently 10 teenagers flourishing under JD's guidance in the active weekly schedule. If in doubt, call for personal references.

    JD has been wonderful with our seven year-old, Dylan, who has studied with him for the last year. JD has been clear and patient with Dylan, while maintaining high expectations that encourages Dylan to perform. He explains musical concepts in terms a child can understand. Thanks to JD, Dylan has not only learned the elements of music theory but also important practice and performance skills. And it is wonderful that he comes to the house, making our hectic schedules just a little more manageable! We highly recommend him.
