Expertise and Experience

Student with GuitarMusic is essential for the enrichment of the human spirit. The goals of teaching music are to enrich the lives of children by playing a musical instrument and to give each child the satisfaction that comes from the ability to do something well. Mr. Berlin offers much more than a private music lesson. Our time together encompasses a philosophy of education that applies to many aspects of a child’s development such as discipline, memory, focus, self-esteem and confidence.

Mr. Berlin holds a masters degrees in music education (currently working toward his doctorate) and has three decades of experience teaching students of all levels, both privately and in the classroom. He uses this expertise to guide each student toward a fulfilling life-long  musical journey. While many students who begin are very young, he also has lots of experience teaching middle and high school students, adults, seniors, and even other teachers! His extensive background in many genres of music making is evident in every lesson and drives the demand for his services.

Mr. Berlin realizes that the modern family schedule can be very complicated.  For this reason, lessons are not only offer lessons in our studio, but also conveniently in your own home and through video conference. He is glad to go above and beyond to accommodate complex schedules.

Many students have the goal of studying music professionally.  Others simply play for the love and enjoyment of music.  One has even played in outer space! Where do you want to go?
