Piano Lessons and More
My name is Julian Baker and I teach piano to kids from 6 to 60. My method revolves around connecting and understanding the student rather than just running them through the process. I strongly believe in making it an enjoyable experience for the student and always endeavor to cater to their taste in music. I often arrange music to fit their level and am continuously adding new music and lesson books to the music library.
I also teach music classes at Marist College. I teach everything from the history of rock and roll to 19th century classical music. Consequently I have a good knowledge of all aspects of music which I like to impart onto my piano students. It is helpful for them to gain some knowledge about the composer and it often ties in with their music education at school.
My studio is in New Paltz. I have a Yamaha piano and an electric piano. When the need arises I will set up a drum beat for the student to play along with in order to help with timing or to create the feeling of playing in a band. I also play guitar, bass and trombone and occasionally play one of these with the student too.
Once (or twice) a year we put on a recital so the students can have the experience of performing to an audience. This year we will be holding it at Woodland Pond nursing and retirement home in New Paltz. Everyone is invited and we usually have a party back at the studio afterwards.
My mission is to make learning the piano a fun and enjoyable experience. Music is a universal language and many of my students have found themselves spontaneously sitting at a piano playing one of their tunes somewhere in their life.
I currently have openings or one or two new students so call me or reply to this email when you are ready.
It's ever to late to start and it is one of the most wonderful talents anyone can acquire and will last them their whole life long.
