Keith is also able to organize music on time and with ease." - Mark K. "Keith was for a large portion of time was my teacher for both piano and small musician group. He had a fantastic understanding of my skill level and always helped me improve. After every lesson with Keith I felt as though I improved greatly as a musician and to be honest no teacher of mine has ever met his high standards. Along with his incredible teaching abilities Keith always had a humorous side that made the lessons more entertaining and always fun. Overall, Keith was the best teacher I've ever had so far as a musician." - Jack M. "I've taken only three lessons up to this point and I am very happy with what we have covered so far...which is a lot. I am more of an intermediate classical guitarist who wanted to refresh and broaden my theoretical skills in music theory, as well as gain insight into more modern guitar playing styles and techniques. Keith responded with a very universal and divers approach to meet my needs by covering scales, modes, chords, chord progressions, guitar arranging techniques all the way through to literature and music listening recommendations, if you happen not to know much about past and recent jazz guitar performers and their works like myself. So if you are in or around Bayonne, Jersey City Hudson County NJ, New York Metro Area, NY, Manhattan, beginner or advanced, rock, finger style or old school jazz looking to improve your guitar playing skills I highly recommend Keith as an instructor and teacher." Stefan M. "I originally started taking bass lessons from Keith on September 2013, but I had to take a back seat when my 9 year-old, Phoenix, INSISTED he takes lessons, too! Now he takes both piano AND guitar lessons from Keith. I am very impressed and pleased with Phoenix' progress, and he really enjoys being taught by Keith. Keith is very, very knowledgeable, and understands the student's needs. He's great with kids! He uses humor throughout his session, so he makes you feel at ease. Keith is also is extremely patient and thorough, and will work at the pace most comfortable with the student. He is also flexible with schedules, and will work with you to fit you in an agreeable timeslot. His prices are quite reasonable; totally worth every cent. My son is learning at a great pace, and looks forward to every Tuesday. He NEVER leaves Keith's apartment confused; he leaves with confidence. If my schedule wasn't so chaotic, I'd happily take bass lessons from Keith again. I fully recommend Keith as a music instructor; you should, too!" - Merrill Z.
