Piano Lessons

Max is a great piano teacher, especially if you want to focus on music theory. I've been taking lessons with him for a few months and already have learned a lot about playing music and jazz in general, in addition to specific piano mechanics. He has also been quite responsive and flexible with me when I've needed to reschedule lessons. Overall, would definitely recommend to any piano student.

Piano Lessons

Max knows his stuff. I came to him mainly looking to expand my knowledge regarding musical theory and to apply that to other instruments that I play. Within only a couple of lessons I've already noticed a difference with how I approach playing other instruments. The material he gives is not overwhelming but its efficient in that I feel like I am gaining knowledge and techniques that can be applied to learning or composing other pieces of music. I would definitely recommend him whether you are a beginner trying to learn a new instrument or more experienced and trying to get a more solid grasp on musical theory.

Piano Lessons

I have to say, Max is by far the best music teacher I have ever had. He has a real appreciation for music and will do everything he can to pass that on to his students. Many music teachers can teach you how to play, but Max takes it to the next level by providing a deep musical understanding. He is polite, easy going, and really fun to be with. Above all else, Max cares about your progress and is willing to accommodate for any style of playing or style you're trying to learn. He really is the best

Piano Lessons

Max has been an excellent tutor. He tailors each session to fit exactly my skill level and I feel I get a lot out of each lesson. The course material is centered around jazz piano, which I've enjoyed. I'd recommend him to anyone interested in well-priced, professional piano lessons.

Piano Lessons

Max is really the best teacher you could ever hope for. At the core he’s such a genuine and caring person, I feel like he really wants to see me grow and I find that so inspiring. He is truly gifted in teaching, his wealth of knowledge is vast and so patient even when I don’t get a concept right away! Honestly I could never run out of good things to say about Max but to keep it simple, Max has helped me to fall in love with the piano again and that is such a gift 🙏
