I studied with various teachers in and out of college for five years, and have over a decade teaching hundreds of students, from the elementary levels to classical piano technique to jazz improvisation to pop piano to ragtime. You will be challenged and at the same time inspired to get the most out of your time with instrument!

Peter has a great rapport with our daughter and is "meeting" her where she is in her interests. She loves Lord of the Rings--they've started on music from Lord of the Rings!
Wick A.
Great instructor. Friendly, easy to understand, talented and can teach piano, theory, composition, etc.
Susan
My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

Piano is a great way to experience music. It is a great way for kids to learn to express thenselves while creating. I encourage the skills of learning music to be adapted for all of children’s activities and for them to grow with an ability to use music to expand creativity.

I began playing the piano when I was 3 years old in Japan. I have the Yamaha certification of piano instructor, which I passed the exam when I was 16. I played in many music festivals held in the city as the pianist and competed in many youth competitions.

I was diagnosed with tendinitis when I was 15 and I was unable to play competitively after that. However, I still enjoy playing the piano and love teaching the joy of being able to play the piano to let the heart out. It’s relaxing and exhilarating at the same time.

In addition, practicing the piano is great for brain development especially for younger children. However, it doesn’t matter if you are young or old, playing the piano is great for brain health and mental health as well. I look forward to working with kids, adults or seniors!

About Ai

Hello, I am truly enjoying teaching every student of all subjects I teach. I enjoy meeting a variety of students and getting to know how unique each of them is. Currently, I teach Japanese, English and piano. I’m very grateful for all the students I’ve taught. Much as I teach them something, they’v

I like to focus on correct playing position, reading the clefs associated with the piano, scales, etudes, peddle technique, and solo pieces. I've taught a wide range of students. From beginner to intermediate to advanced. I've taught students as young as 4 to students in their 60's.

About DeAndre

I am looking for students who want to work hard at learning an instrument or anyone that would like to learn to read music. I specialize in classical and religious music. I have been playing in the Huntsville/ Decatur area for years.

DeAndre is very patient and pleasant with my two daughters, who are looking forward to their next lesson. He is clearly a talented musician as well.
Eric O.
For the last year I have been taking piano, viola and violin lessons online with DeAndre. He is a natural, insightful teacher and I look forward to years of lessons with him. I would absolutely recommend him.

I'm a beginner with the violin and viola and an intermediate pianist. I was doubtful at first that I would be able to learn through a video chat. I'm amazed at the detail DeAndre can pick up just by watching a video chat. There have been many times when we just did the lesson over the phone with no video and he was able to tell that my fingering hand was in the wrong position or I was holding the bow wrong just by listening over the phone!

On and off through my life I've taken piano and viola lessons (I'm 46) and was never able to get very far. I found my teachers discouraged me in many ways without trying to. DeAndre has been fantastic. With his instruction I've been able to do things I never thought I would ever be able to do. He's excellent at giving feedback about the things I'm doing wrong but in a way that keeps me positive and makes me aware of the things I'm doing well and the things I need to improve.

DeAndre is absolutely worth the time and money.

When you take piano lessons with me, we'll cover music theory to piano exercises designed to build strength and coordination. We’ll play a wide range of pieces from beautiful classical pieces to your favorite pop music. We’ll break the music down and figure out how it was composed and why it works. And we’ll work together to help develop your sense of rhythm, melody, and harmony so that you can sit down and truly express yourself in impromptu jam, join a band, or write a hit song.

2020 Update: all lessons are taught over Skype or Zoom. Check the remote lessons demo video in my profile to get a sense of what it's like! Music is a rewarding art with infinite depths - the approach you take to learn it should reflect this. When you take piano lessons with me we’ll cover a

9 months in taking lessons from Chris and it has been a great experience so far. Not only am I learning how to play the piano, but I'm also learning music theory. Not just how to play certain notes and chords but why. Highly recommended.
Zac
Kris is an excellent teacher and instructor. He caters each lesson to my abilities and interests. He explains music theory concepts clearly and follows up each lesson with an emailed summary of what was taught. He's willing to work with you at your pace. My skills as a pianist and song writer have improved significantly since I began working with Kris. He's been able to successfully adapt to online lessons in a way that has made it possible for us to continue working together even though he's on the East coast and I'm on the West coast. His talent as a musician is only surpassed by his skill as a teacher. I can't recommend him highly enough. If you want to take piano seriously and really develop as a musician, Kris is the best mentor you will find.
Judson
Kris tailored a curriculum for exactly what my goals were and in just under a year I went from 0 to quite confident on the piano! He's patient, flexible, and there seem to be no gaps in his knowledge.

Keyboard vs. Piano: What Do New Students Need?

Piano lessons are a great investment, but what if you don't own a piano? Is it really necessary, or will a smaller, more manageable keyboard do the trick? If you're asking these questions, we've got your answers. Consider the following as you make your decision... How committed are you? The first question you'll want to ask yourself is how committed you are with your lessons. Obviously, a full piano is a big investment - in terms of both money and space.
