I just love to teach! My mother was a piano teacher. She taught all the local kids in the neighborhood. She started me playing when I was just 4 years old. I remember the dreaded 1/2 hour of practice that she made me do everyday!!

I have done solo concerts, and played with the Orchestra at Vista Assembly of God. At one time I was also assistant choir director...

I love to teach piano from the beginning... to willing students ready to put in the work of course!!

About Keith

Playing the Piano should be fun. Getting a few basics out of the way you can unlock all of your favorites. Imagine being able to sit down and play the piano anywhere you go and entertain and delight the crowd. The foundation to great ability with the Piano is in the fundamentals. We'll hit hard on

How to Teach Piano to Kids | 8 Ways to Support Your Little Mozart

Studies show, time after time, that music lessons in early childhood are essential for creating neural pathways for brain development.  They also give children a head start on creativity and self-expression.  Music was likely our first language as human beings, and it still provokes a very primal response in us - anybody from anywhere in the world can listen to a song and know what emotion it is trying to convey. If you ask an adult if they took piano lessons as a child, many will say yes.   …

How to Improve Your Left Hand When Playing Piano

“Why won’t this hand work?” is something every piano teacher has heard students  say in exasperation. The left hand is often a source of deep frustration for pianists for two main reasons:  1.)
