At this page, we feature a different teacher each month. Here is this month’s teacher:

John  Gilmore

My name is John Gilmour, I’m a pianist and piano teacher currently accepting students of all ages for my piano studio in Lewes, Delaware. I am presently accepting students for online lessons only, but hopefully circumstances will allow me to offer in-person lessons soon!

As a teacher, I believe learning an instrument should be engaging and fun. Every time we sit down at the piano we have the opportunity to discover—I aim to inspire a spirit of playfulness and exploration in every lesson. I have a master’s degree in piano and years of teaching experience working with students of all ages. My teaching style is supportive and flexible, and I strive to enable efficient, musically engaged, and process-oriented learning. I believe it is essential to meet each student where they are, and tailor my approach to each individual.
