With more than two decades of experience, David Schuman has taught hundreds of students how to play the piano by tailoring instruction to individual needs and tastes. David starts by learning the student’s goals, strengths, and musical preferences, then crafts a strategy specific to that student. David might encourage practicing jazz numbers, pop standards, or musical accompaniment to celebrity Twitter accounts. Even though no experience or note-reading ability is necessary to get started, students of every age can expect to play songs with both hands by the end of their second lesson. David also teaches the art of arrangement and the intricacies of music theory to more experienced musicians.
