About Mark

When a person studies the piano, it is essential to have a teacher who can present the material in a way that is exciting and easy to understand. People learn in different ways, so it is necessary for a teacher to be able to adjust their presentation to meet specific needs and learning styles. People choose me as their teacher because they want to have a positive learning experience. Learning how to play the piano should be fun and rewarding. I am able to offer these things to my students. Lessons are taught in my students' homes or in my West Orange studio. I have been teaching piano full time since 1979. I always make my students my main priority. I teach all ages and levels. Some students begin their music education with me while others come to me after previous teachers have been unable to make the lessons appealing. For over 30 years I have been one of the most successful piano teachers in Northern New Jersey. There are less expensive teachers available but all of my students quickly notice the exceptional value of the lessons that I have to offer. If you want to learn how to play the piano, I encourage you to become one of my students.
