In Student Home
I am a classical and jazz trained pianist with over 20 published books

My Musical Education Background
Years of study with top new york jazz and classical pianist. Also course work in composition and theory at Queens college-the Aaron copland music school.
Genres and Subjects Taught
I teach everything-Classical, Jazz, Pop. I am comfortable with many teaching styles and methods and aim toward the individuality of the student. A five year old for example would likely do well with a pre reading approach before the introduction of reading the notes.
All my students learn chords quickly and how to use them. The lessons are fun and relaxed.

My Certifications and Awards
My pride are all the published works. Many of these have been suggested as recital pieces by music organizations.

Besides teaching we provide student evaluations, recitals, competions and scholorships for those who wish to study music in college.
My Musical Influences
I came to Larry in Winter Springs years ago to learn further about Jazz. His knowledge and experience is worthy of more than an ordinary piano teacher. He is very humble and gentle man. His contributions to jazz learning through his publications are underrated. He is an excellent musician worthy of great accomplishments yet to be seen and heard. I am proud to say that I have had the privelidge of getting lessons with him.
Mr. Minsky (Mr. Larry), You were my piano teacher for three years up until you moved sout in the end of March 2010. you were truly an inspiration to the way I will ever play music. You made lessons fun. And it seemed you'd won a life prize in tictac's, because you had a neverending supply. Cole and I miss you. Cole has decided to take up an instrument in his school's band, but I am still pursuing the piano. I have signed up for piano classes at my highschool, so i hope that goes well. If it does not we are going to attempt to find another private teacher, though he/she could never match up to the way we loved you as our teacher. talk to you later maybe.
