Learning to play the way musicians like Glenn Gould, Vladimir Horowitz and Artur Rubinstein do doesn't have to be a dream. Like with any project, the first thing to do is gather the necessary tools. One of the most important "tools" in your learning process will be piano lessons!

My son, Alec, has been taking lessons from Joe for 4 years. Alec started taking lessons at a relatively advanced age (14). I was concerned initially that my son would not have the patience to take lessons at that age, but Joe inspired my son and gave him the great gift of appreciation of music. We are indebted to Joe for that gift. Joe is conscientious, patient, and works well with young people. He encouraged Alec to develop his own taste and style rather than forcing him to play music that appeal for him. Joe has a great love of performing and that enthusiasm is apparent when he teaches. I am certain that Alec will continue to play the piano and will hear music differently for the rest of his life. My wife and I feel very fortunate to have found Joe and we recommend him with great enthusiasm and without reservation.MICHAEL - NEW YORK, NY Teacher: Joe H.
