Virtual Lessons


I have over forty years of teaching experience teaching classes and private lessons at the university level, outside the university, and through the Jamey Aebersold workshops (37 years). Are you a pianist who is beginner to jazz and want to get a solid foundation? Are you a bit more experienced but could use some guidance to reach the next level in your jazz playing? I think I can help and would be pleased to work with you

I really enjoy working with people individually in person (in my studio in Cincinnati) or any place in the world over Zoom. If you have a computer or tablet and a good internet connection set up near your piano, one on one lessons can work well, and you do not need to leave your home.
