Instruments:

I find it important for the student to learn the concepts clearly so they can be their own teacher. This is important as the student will typically only see me once a week and the biggest work is done at home. Therefore the student needs to be correcting him/herself during the practice session. When I see a student correct their own mistakes I know we have achieved something important. Along with the technical and musical instruction, I like to incorporate music history when relevant. I encourage my students to see how important music is. That as long as there have been humans, there has been music.

The Rake’s Progress was featured on Late Night with Conan O’Brian, MTV’s 120 Minutes, and Beavis and Butthead and toured through the United States, Canada and Europe. At the present time, Stuart writes music, records, and performs with Barnacle Bill and Streams of Whiskey.

Instruments:

       I have studied with several professional, performing musicians, but most of my learning has come from books, magazines and listening. Listening is, quite simply, the best teacher you can have, provided you do it properly. I have played music since age eight, in school bands, jazz bands, blues, and rock bands. I also have written songs since age 10, and recorded numerous cd's of original music in various styles. I am currently the frontman in the Jersey Shore Blues Rock Tribute Band. I also play solo piano at hospitals and nursing homes. I work music as a full time job, and have never had a second thought about being a musician. I have studied numerous instruments and musical styles, as well as writing, recording, performance, history, criticism and theory.

Instruments:

Staying true to traditional teaching is important to me, however each student learns at his/her own pace where one student may need a slower, more structured curriculum while another needs a more varied, advanced course of study. This revels itself quickly and I pride myself in my ability to diagnose one’s learning style, finding his/her specific need and applying various methods to address that need, from sight reading and transposing to finger placement and exercises. I’m fortunate to have the opportunity to teach students on an individual basis, which allows me to customize lesson plans according to each student’s needs and abilities. I believe that everyone excels in different ways, and once I ascertain what makes a student learn most proficiently, I’m able to provide points of motivation to excite, encourage and bring out the musician in each student.

Instruments:

As a teacher I am able to adapt instruction to what the students wants and needs may be. I acknowledge that every student is different and I strive to be flexible.
