Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Online Music Theory Teacher

Every student is different and no two students should be taught the same. During our first meeting we'll discuss your goals, interests and past experiences with music. Based on that conversation we'll create a custom curriculum built around your interests and what you want to learn.

In my five years as a private and group piano instructor, I have taught all ages and skill levels. From a five-year-old to a retired microbiology professor, from beginners who have never touched a piano to students competing at the State and National levels. I feel confident teaching any age and skill level.

Most of my professional experience is in jazz piano and pop/rock music, but am confident in teaching classical music and more contemporary pieces as well as lecturing about music theory and composition.

About Brock

Sara
My 10 year old son has taken piano lessons with Brock for three years. When my son started lessons, he could not read notes. Brock has been an excellent teacher and my son has learned so much. He now knows how to play numerous intermediate level songs. Brock does a great job with helping my son maintain his interest in playing and practicing the piano. He makes sure to find songs that my son loves to play including some of the popular music on the radio today. I would recommend Brock as a piano teacher for any child or adult.
Laura
Brock has always been professional, punctual, and respectful during his home visits to give our 12 and 10 year old piano lessons over the last couple of years. During that time he has taught our kids and they have performed classical repertoire, jazz tunes, improvised on stage and pop songs. We recommend him highly to anyone interested in the piano.

"Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!"

We've only had one lesson but I've learned more with him than I did with an adult self teaching piano book.

Music Student Face-Off: Memorizers vs. Readers | Which is Better?

As you learn songs and work through your music books, do you memorize the notes? Or do you read along every time you play? In this post, music teacher Vanessa G. discusses the pros and cons to the approaches...   Imagine your teacher gives you a piece of music to study. What's your process? Do you listen to a recording, memorizing the melody and the stylistic aspects before you begin, and then as you play? Or would you sit down and sight read the notes, and perfect it from that star …
