If you want to play songs I'll teach you the quickest way to learn how to play songs. If you want to be a great all around player I'll teach you how to play lead patterns, use theory for writing, play chords and how to play and write full songs.

Outstanding teacher!

Chad bring such an amazing dynamic to teaching my children. He really tailors his teaching to meet the unique needs of each child. My one daughter really likes to challenge herself, she is very focused and enjoys creating her own music. He honed in on this right away and each lesson is filled with just the amount of intensity and instruction along with patience and fun to allow my daughter to explore what she likes best in her music style.

My son is the opposite. He plays electric guitar. He is not focused, but he loves the sound and working with Chad. Chad makes him feel just as accomplished as my daughter and offers him great patience and redirection. My son always looks forward to his lesson and has maintained his enthusiasm for guitar whereas other things he's tried he has quickly lost interest.

Chad is simply the best there is. Not to mention he is EXTREMELY talented and has a great singing voice :)

I give a lot of importance to getting to know the students. Each student has different goals and plans in mind that knowing them makes the lessons so much more interesting, motivating and interactive. Students are in a road to discovery. I try to do my best in helping them in this path of discovery by giving them the tools they need which are learning the techniques and having fun and enjoying the art of playing the piano.
There is always so much joy and excitement in learning to play a new piece. I hope everyone can experience this.

About Nahal

Music is the food for the soul. It inspires and influences people whether they are musicians or not. I started playing the piano when I was 10. My parents took me for piano lessons to introduce me to music and see whether I’d like it. Well, I loved it! I have been playing since then and music ha

Dr. Chaz is a very knowledgeable and patient instructor. He is an incredibly adept musician. He can identify what exactly you need improvement on and provides the most helpful advice on how to attain that improvement. I have studied music (flute) for 10 years with numerous teachers and band/orchestra directors, all very skilled and incredible themselves, but I never received clearer instruction than with Dr. Chaz. He explained concepts that many young musicians (like myself) struggle with and he beautifully portrays the relationship between theory, practice, and performance. Additionally, I appreciate his emphasis on ensuring vocal health and meditation- meditating pitches so that one can internalize the pitches to sing them more accurately. I was planning to remain his student for as long as I could but due to personal health and scheduling reasons, I had to discontinue and hope to return soon. I 150% recommend taking his lessons. Get ready to learn so much and expand as a musician!
Mark
Really great vocal teacher. He's very patient to his students. He goes on all the topics about singing. He's really good at helping his students prepare for a song. He doesn't waste time on any unnecessary practice. He teaches his students how to practice at home. I learned a lot of singing terms from him as well. Overall, I think he's a great vocal coach.

Excellent! knowledgeable, friendly, easy to follow. Great introduction for a total beginner.
