The piano is the foundation of western music. It's range covers most of the pitches audible to human ears and is capable of enormous harmonic complexity. Because of this nearly all classical music by composers such as Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart was first worked out on the keyboard before it was notated for other instruments.
These days the influence of the piano and it's modern counterpart, the keyboard, can be heard in the music all around us. The musical keyboard has become the way most artists interface with digital recording and mixing tools. In addition, with it's physical layout the piano is accessible technique-wise to anyone - from very young children to the most advanced concert and jazz pianists. For this reason the piano has always been one of the most popular instruments to take lessons on.
Just as no two people are alike, no two students learn the same way. Some people take lessons for years while others take lessons for a few weeks to prepare for an upcoming audition. Encore Music Lessons won't require you to make any long term commitments. Students are free to stop or start their lessons when they need to.
Perhaps you're considering learning the piano as well. You might be feeling a little overwhelmed by how much there is to learn. An experienced piano teacher can help you understand everything step by step, at your own speed.
Lessons can be given in the privacy of your residence or at a teacher's studio in your area.

I think that Jon is a wonderful instructor. He is very patient with my son which is very important. Even though my child is not a musical genius he really enjoys every lesson that he has. He is such a great instructor my family is willing to share him... a little.Justin's Mom Teacher: Jon D.
