Jeff Harrison offers private piano, keyboard, and composition lessons online – for the very young to adult, beginner through advanced.

He teaches a well-rounded curriculum that includes repertoire from classical, popular, and jazz styles, theory, technique, improvisation, composition, ear training, music history, and digital recording.

Instruction consists of a half-hour lesson per week during which you’ll review your practice material from the previous week before going over new material. After a number of years, it is usual for more advanced students to go on to hour lessons as there will be more material to cover. At the present time, all lessons are being held online via Zoom.

If you do not have an acoustic piano at home, a simple full-size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first year or so. After that, a well-maintained acoustic piano or a good digital piano is highly recommended to continue making progress.
