Phillip is awesome, he is by far the best vocal instructor I've ever had!

I'm a 27 year old male who decided to start up voice lessons again to complement my guitar playing. I'm so glad that I chose Phillip as my instructor. He knows more about singing and how to sing than any instructor I've ever had. He's great!

Willy M. Winston Salem, NC

I have been teaching piano for almost 20 years. I have taught classical, blues, jazz, country and gospel styles. I am well versed in traditional methods of piano study, but I also have a great deal of success in helping classically trained students learn how to play rock, blues and jazz styles.

About Willy

Willy has been teaching music for more than a decade, carrying on the tradition he learned when his father taught him piano as a youth. He is a multi-instrumentalist with a degree in music from Earlham College in historic Richmond, IN (the birthplace of recorded jazz, and home of 30s era Genette Records).

As a sound technician Willy gained valuable experience working at the world famous Tarry Town Music Hall near Sleepy Hollow, NY, where he worked with top notch touring bands like Blues Traveler, the Indigo Girls, Paul Shaffer, the Marshall Tucker Band, and the late, great Levon Helm. He also worked with A-list actors such as Stanley Tucci, James Cahn, Kevin Bacon and Keanu Reeves.

While living in Austin, TX, Willy was a member of the American Federation of Musicians alongside ...

I wasn't really taking mandolin, but fiddle in the Stringed Instrument Workshop, but I loved it. Willy is a great teacher. I especially enjoyed the SIW, with my kids. It was a lot of fun to learn musical techniques with lots of people of different skill levels. I'm not the best musician, but Willy makes you feel like you can participate even if you don't understand all of the theory.

The Stringed Instrument Workshop last year was really fun because almost everyone in the group won some different musical freebies from different music stores nearby. We had a cookout and a concert, and both of my children were able to perform in front of the class. Willy set up a stage, lights and a sound system for us all to feel like we were stars! It was such a fun time, and we even had hotdogs and marshmallows!

I loved the Stringed Instrument Workshop so much, I had him teach my kids private lessons too, and they love it.

I loved taking lessons with Willy. I am only 7, and I am just learning, but am starting to play the Charlie Brown theme song. I can also play a little bit of Shorten Bread. There's another song too. It's a song that I learned that I really liked, can't remember the words, but it's a good song. I love piano lessons.

Mr. Willy helped me learn the song "Mean" by Taylor Swift!! I was so happy to play! I took the Stringed Instrument Workshop and I loved it! It was so much fun, and I was able to learn with my friends. It was easy to learn, and we learned how to play "Amazing Grace," together. We played it for my church and everyone loved it!!! :)

I will continue playing mandolin, and want to also learn violin, piano and guitar. I can even play "Mean" on the 12 string guitar now in open tunings!!

I've been teaching piano/keyboard studies to beginner and intermediate students for five years now. As a student in Berea College, I taught lessons both to college students as well as students who were residents in the town of Berea, KY. Here's how I teach: imagine a sound, play a sound, and reflect on a sound. This approach helps you learn music on your own. We will collaborate together to tackle a hard piece, your favorite piece. We will learn the beauty of how scales/chords make music.

About Francois

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons in the living room of my home. The student and I will collaborate on a Yamaha upright piano. An accessible sound system will be readily available for cases where the student and I might want to listen to the playing of the student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Ideally, if I am traveling to their house they should have a piano. I do, however, have a weighted keyboard used for song-writing. I would prefer not to ship it back and forth, if at all possible.

*** Specialties ***
The basic approach I take in my teaching method can be summed into three parts: imagine a sound, play a sound, and reflect on the sound. This strategy will be used for technical studies of scales, studies of Classical compositions, and studies of the students favorite song. The ...

About Robert

Both my mom and dad were musicians and taught private lessons at home, so I grew up wanting to be a part of the music making. Now I am a university music educator who performs frequently as a soloist and collaborative pianist. I hold piano performance degrees from Carnegie Mellon and Yale. In addition, I've studied chamber music at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau (France) and vocal accompanying at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. I perform as a church musician, choral accompanist, and recital pianist in traditional and more modern styles. I'm active as a collaborative artist in competitions, auditions, and recordings. In the past three years I've been studying ballroom dancing for fun and as an extension of my interest in experiencing music from the ...

So far my daughter has good experience advancing in the piano leasson. Looking forward for her to learn more and get some mastery.

Piano teacher is very patient and communicates very well with my daughter. We don't have any chance for her to perform using her piano skills yet but may be in the future.

My son truly enjoys his time with Robert. Robert is patient and works well with children. He works at a good pace and provides encouraging feedback on a consistent basis. Robert tailors his lessons for the individual student and their interests and ability. Thank you Robert for your professional manner in which you teach.

For beginner piano students, we will start by exploring our way around the piano, and begin building a music theory base. Then, we will continue on at a pace specific to the student, learning skills like how to read music, how to play scales and other exercises, and how to play a piece of music that I assign. For intermediate students, we will begin by assessing your current skills, then build upon them with etudes and exercises like the Hanon technique, and learn pieces from various musical eras. We can also explore Musical Theater and Pop music.

As one of the UNCSA Teaching Assistants for Keyboarding, I'm well prepared to start with you at the very beginning. We will cover basic keyboard skills, including: scales, key signatures, chords, sight reading practices, and keyboard theory. We'll also cover hand position, healthy posture, and effective practice technique.

I believe in shaping each lesson around the specific needs of the student, so I'm prepared to go at your pace!
