Peter C.

Goodyear, AZ

About Peter

I began piano lessons at four years of age, and was blessed to have an amazing piano teacher, who taught me for 14 years. She gave me a passion to teach others and impart to them a love for music. I have carried on that calling and taught hundreds of adults and children over the last 30 years. I am very thorough in my method and customize each lesson around the goals and dreams of each student. I incorporate theory, ear training and technical into all my lessons, regardless of the style of music they are learning. This gives my students an all-round musical education and appreciation for this
wonderful gift they have in their hands.

I have experience in the professional music world as a pianist and french horn player, performing with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, Australian Opera Chorus and Orchestra, Sydney Sinfonia, Sydney Philharmonic Orchestra and Choir, as well as productions of "Cats", "Phantom of the Opera", Sesame Street, and touring all over Australia, U.S.A. and Israel. I have also been a part of the worship teams at Hillsong Church and C3 Church Australia.

I studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, and also received my Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in French Horn (Teaching) and Licentiate Diploma from the Trinity College of London (L.T.C.L.) in Piano (Performance). So my experience not only comes from an inspiring teacher, but also from hundreds of performances on stages across the world working with the finest of musicians, singers, conductors and worship leaders.

I love music, and more so, love imparting it to others.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students come away from their lessons inspired and excited about their ability to accomplish their dreams. Whether it is to play 'Phantom of the Opera' or an Adele song, Debussy's Claire De Lune or Jingle Bells, I show them how to do it and help them get there. I am very thorough, taking no short cuts, but making it fun to learn an instrument. You will be amazed at what you are playing in three to six months!

*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Rock, Contemporary Christian

My son has studied french horn with Peter for 2 years now, and he looks forward to lessons every week. Under his guidance I've watched my teenager excel as a musician, and I've grown to admire Peter's teaching methods. We drive halfway across town to get to there ... because HE'S WORTH IT. It's true that Peter listens to his student's goals. He has literally tailored the lessons around my sons auditions while simultaneously giving him the necessary building blocks to continue growing musically.

My son loves the lessons with Peter. Peter is a very good teacher and he is very consistent in making sure results happen. Peter is very good at pointing out my sons weaknesses and strengths and helps him to constantly work on them. We really like his direct and to the point style of teaching and think he's a great fit for us!

We LOVE Peter! He has such an easy going personality and his instruction in learning the guitar makes it easy to pick up. I would recommend Peter to any age who has the sincere desire to learn an instrument. I know I can trust him with instructing my son, as well as any member of my family.

David A.

Goodyear, AZ

About David

I am a pianist, guitarist, singer and songwriter. Originally from the Washington, D.C. area, I studied classical and jazz piano with Carole Neal, and classical and jazz guitar with Hank Bryant. I have won one Washington Area Music Award for an original instrumental composition. I have performed with numerous and varied musical situations, including The University of Maryland Jazz Orchestra, Pavement Chasers Tribute to Adele, Elvis Aaron Presley Jr., and my own original group “LUMA”, which performed at venues all over the Washington, D.C. area. In 1999, I received a Certificate of Au
dio Engineering from The Conservatory of Recording Arts & Sciences in Tempe, Arizona. I then produced and performed as a studio musician on a variety of regional and national projects, including radio advertisements for The United Way, Chevrolet, and Pringles. In 2000, I produced, performed, and co-engineered on a recording of my own original music entitled “A & LILL”. I have extensive background and experience in rock, jazz, blues, classical and country musical styles. I currently perform as a freelance keyboardist and guitarist in the Phoenix metro area. In addition to teaching, my other musical passion is writing and performing my original music. I am published through Big Fish Music Publishing Group. With many years of experience teaching students of all ages, I am confident that I can provide lessons that combine both the necessary instruction in theory and technique with the fun and enjoyment of learning new songs! I am able to find out where each student wants to go in his or her musical adventure, and tailor a lesson plan based upon those needs.

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a teaching style which is informative and fun at the same time! I do typically use method books for piano and guitar lessons, as well as handouts which I provide. After a certain period of time, usually within 6 months, my students have a solid foundation in theory (scales, chords, etc.) and technique, and are usually on their way to playing songs. I encourage students to let me know what songs they are interested in learning! We learn music through both reading and by ear. I am very patient and I believe in repetition so that my students fully understand the music that they are working on.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Front room w/ grand piano, f/w keyboard, guitars, amps, and seating for parents

*** Specialties ***
For my students, I incorporate a method involving a logical way to learn what the notes are on their instrument. My method involves a combination of music theory and hands on participation. I systematically expose them to theory in order to help them understand what is behind the exercises and songs that they are playing. I use both method books and my own supplemental handouts to enhance their learning experience. I also help students to learn music from audio recordings. I teach jazz, rock, pop, blues, country, and classical music styles.

Erin W.

Goodyear, AZ

About Erin

I am an enthusiastic, caring, and patient voice and piano instructor. I am passionate about both music and teaching.
I began playing piano when I was 9 years, and began classical vocal instruction at the age of 10. I have been teaching both voice and piano since 2004. I received my Bachelors of Music in Music Therapy in 2013. I believe passionately in the healing and restorative power of music. My teaching methods are based on traditional practices and pedagogy while also incorporating my student’s musical preferences, and personal goals. My main goal as a teacher is to help each student
reach their highest musical potential while developing a life-long love for music.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a relaxed and patient teacher. I use positive reinforcement in order to help inspire and motivate my students. I do expect my students to play and/or sing outside of lessons, but I will never make my students feel anything but proud of their accomplishments as a musician.
My piano students will learn note reading, proper fingering, posture and technique, music theory, chord theory, ear training, and performance.
My voice students will learn proper posture, breathing, vocal technique and alignment. They will also learn how to sing in many different styles, or if they wish we can focus on specific genre of music.
Within 3-6 months my students will have a much greater understanding of music, and will have developed a passion for playing their instrument or singing.

*** Specialties ***
I use many different method books when teaching piano and am most comfortable with the Bastien series and Alfreds. When teaching voice I draw on many different methods and am comfortable teaching classical, pop, musical theater, and jazz.

Erin is great to work with. She has a very easy going and positive personality, and yet gets the student to work hard and practice. She is flexible and willing to adjust hours and days when things come up.
She occasionally will cancel with various family or personal issues, so your flexibility is needed as well.
Overall, we have been happy with our daughters progress and motivation.
Thanks Erin!

I've been taking lessons with Erin for about 2 years, and I couldn't be happier with her. I'm a thirty something newbie, and with her guidance and support I'm at a level I would have never imagined before. She encourages and trusts, while putting the right amount of pressure to practice and try. Erin is caring and patient, and genuinely wants to see me succeed in my goals. If you have to choose a teacher, she's the best one around!
