We were firstBefore the term "Live Stream" existed, back in 2013, we were the first ones on the internet to "broadcast" lessons across the "world wide web", so we know what we're doing, and how to make the most of this medium!
"He was the first teacher who understood...I just wanted to enjoy my keyboard. The lessons are enjoyable and enlightening."
"I am looking at my instrument in a whole new way. He took all the pieces I already knew and put them together so it all made sense."
"The lessons have taught my daughter so much. She is having lots of fun and really enjoys music now more than ever. It's been a great experience that we plan to continue long term. Thank you!"

"My son had such a great experience learning from Jamin. It was such a great way for him to explore his love for music and video games and he had many questions for the instructor who replied to all of them with kindness and support."
"He has a lot of cool ways to explain things for piano. After every time I go for a lesson, I'm super happy and can't wait for the next lesson. I would recommend Learn Piano Live to anyone wanting to learn piano!"
"This is my third attempt at formal lessons for piano and Jamin has an uncommonly professional setup. Jamin keeps it positive and graciously shares alot or a little of his skillset when the appropriate opportunity presents itself. And he doesn't mind repeating himself, which helps alot too. Highly recommended."

FOUNDER OF LEARN PIANO LIVE, MILESTONES MUSIC, & THE YOUNG MUSICIANS ASSOCIATION
"After years of studying, performing, and teaching, I finally accepted the fact that most music teachers are willing to push reluctant students through irrelevant rudiments and boring lesson books in the fallacious name of "proper musicianship", rather than helping people engage with - and build a relationship with - the music they love.
True, there is an inexhaustible world of skills, techniques, and theory to explore, but let's not take ourselves too seriously! We’re not curing the world’s diseases. We’re just making cool noises at cool times, and bringing joy to our fellow humans through this weird art form of compressing packets of air.
This isn’t magic! You can jump in and learn what you want. You CAN do at least some of it and you can’t mess it up. The music is here and it wants to be your friend.
Music is just a foreign language, and as such, it can be as serious or as leisurely as you want. You can dedicate your life to the language or just learn a few words - the music is here to serve us, not the other way around.
It’s insane how inaccessible most piano programs are, but I'm working to fix that with specialized programs for every learning style. Jump in and explore. I’ll help show you around...
Let's talk. Let's learn. Let's play!"
