Jonathan Shepherd has been teaching private piano lessons for over thirteen years and continues to offer quality piano education to students of all levels and ages.  Beginners are taught classical technique, literacy, and theory.  Advanced pianists are encouraged to continue studying classical music, but given opportunities to specialize in other styles. 

"Playing by ear" or improvising are options too.

Jonathan works to make piano challenging and fun and matched to his students' personal talents and goals.  Whether you've made up your mind to be the next great concert pianist, or you're learning the language before choosing another instrument, or you just know you want music to be a part of your life somehow, there's a tempo that's right for you.  Or if it's piano accompaniment you're looking for, Jonathan can help you too.
