Award-winning teacher - jazz, blues, rock
Teaching Philosophy

I have been teaching piano for over 25 years. Beginners to advanced students learn theory, composition, improvisation and technical studies. Very patient with beginners and challenge the more advanced player. Fun is the main ingredient while learning.


Studied at Berklee College of Music and courses at New England Conservatory. Greatest joy was studying with renowned jazz professor Charlie Banacos for several years.

Music has been featured Today Show, Unsolved Mysteries, 60 Minutes, NFL Football, 20/20, NBC Movie Of The Week, CBS Tuesday Night Movie, ABC Wide World Of Sports, Grumpy Old Men and many others.

“My family is not easy to work with, their are 5 small children. A lot of teachers might get a little flustered but not Mr. Val. He was warm and welcoming and my children took to him with easy. I would recommend him to any one.”
