Hi there! My name is Ed and I'm a performing musician and educator. I have taught music lessons for over 15 years to all ages and I have experience in a wide range of musical styles from jazz to classical, and have played professionally in rock, salsa, reggae, country, and folk groups. Teaching keeps me busy when I'm not performing, as I love to inspire people to discover their own musical abilities!
I've helped lots of people realize their musical goals over the years, whether that goal is to strum a guitar around a campfire or it's to learn a tough classical piano piece - and I can help you too! Everyone should have the right to experience the joy of making music. I believe that lessons should be fun but still challenge you to be your best.
Here are some quotes from students and parents that I am very fortunate to have received:
"Ed is a fantastic teacher and he had me playing songs within a few weeks of practicing! Ed is delighted to share his phenomenal knowledge and love of music – and he has spent many hours revamping scores to suit my capabilities and aspirations as an adult learner."
Murray (student, adult learner)
"Ed is a really nice teacher who always helps me with drilling out pieces I am having troubles with. I get to play all kinds of different music!”
Emma, (student, 9 yrs old)
“We are very happy with our daughter’s lessons with Ed. He teaches not only just about how to read music and listen at the piano but about the love of music.”
“Our son and daughter have taken piano and guitar lessons from Ed for two years. They have learned so much in a short period of time and really enjoy working with Ed. He has instilled a love of music in both of them! We highly recommend Ed as a music teacher for all ages!”
