Piano Lessons


J.P. started playing the piano at 10 years old. After arranging two songs for performance in his senior year of high school, he resigned himself to a music life and started picking up new skills in college, including the pipe organ, jazz piano, live sound, composition, theory, music recording and production, and more.


As a teacher, J.P. believes that playing music should stay fun, even when it’s difficult, so he challenges students to learn the theory as well as the technique; after all, writing is just as important as reading in any other language, so why not music?


Most of the time, he can be found in front of a keyboard or a computer, hammering out his next piece of music.
