Music has been my passion since I was 10 years old. I didn't have any real instruments at first, so, I built my own out of coffee cans, ice cream containers and of course: a rubber band shoebox guitar! It might sound funny, but, I believe these early days of trying to create music using my "homemade symphony," forced me to really get to the core of sound and expression without the pre-set curriculum of traditional music study. Early on, I learned a few fundamental concepts of music theory that would forever change how I learned, as well as how I taught music to others. I believe these concepts set a foundation that allowed me to understand music and grow much faster - including learning multiple instruments.

And yes, I eventually acquired a real guitar and went on to study music and computers at the University of California and I currently compose music for TV and film in my own studio. I have taught guitar, bass, piano, drums, theory, composition and recording production to ...

About Peter

I've been playing piano for over 25 years and teaching piano for over 10. I use a wide variety of piano methods to fit the individual needs of all my students. Students will learn how to properly care for their instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), and repertoire. I even have my own experimental piano courses that I have developed myself. Group piano lessons are also available at a lower cost on Saturdays only.

Teaching private music lessons is my primary job, so I have much experience and wisdom compared to teachers who teach "on the side." Students of all ages stay wi

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Each student's training program is uniquely based on his/her personal goals. This depends on individual needs to include teaching basic technique, music theory, chord inversions, scales, improvisation, site reading and/or ear training as part of the process.

Beginners, intermediate and advanced level musicians are encouraged to sign up to increase their playing skills and/or knowledge of marketing and branding.

Remember... becoming a fluent musician requires practice, practice and more practice!

Great learning experience with Eric.
David
I can't say enough good things about Earl's instruction. He's extremely knowledgeable and talented and yet responsive, inspiring, and kind. Rather than applying a narrow and rigid approach to teaching, lessons are built around my abilities and interests and he has taught me new ways of looking at music and playing guitar. I feel very fortunate to be one of his students.

I am currently accepting transfer students 10+ for remote lessons only. Because grade levels don't have standardized definitions, I'm asking that you please find the Clementi Arietta in C Major on Youtube (user is Sheetmusic2print). You will see the music. If you can either play this at sight or believe you could learn it within a few weeks, we are a good match.

I focus on the classical repertoire. Since 2003, I have been teaching music both privately and as a college professor to students of all ages. My keyboard teaching includes investigation into the music being played whenever possible. This relates to interpretation, performance practice, the history of the composer, the history of the piece, and more.

General Requirements:
• An acoustic piano is best, but a digital keyboard with 88 fully weighted, touch-sensitive keys and a sustain pedal is also acceptable.

Remote Learning Requirements:
• A relatively distraction-free environment in your home
• A fast internet ...

Aaron has an ability to make difficult things interesting and fun. While I was at the University of Oregon, Aaron provided me private instruction for what was one of the most disliked classes amongst the undergrads. Aaron turned what used to be something that I would dread into something that was entertaining and effective. He would come with real world examples and allegories regarding music theory and composition to apply context to whatever it was we were studying. Despite my apparent deficiencies in ear training, he was not only incredibly patient but also very effective in helping me overcome my challenges and earn a passing grade.
Kate R.
I studied with Aaron while I was an undergraduate student majoring in music performance. Aaron's class was always a highlight of my day, because he made learning about music fun and approachable. Aaron helped me build a strong foundation of knowledge in music theory and aural skills which has since played a large part in my professional and musical growth. I highly recommend Aaron as a teacher!
Lynn A.
Aaron is awesome!! I took lessons from him at the University of Oregon. He was a complete treasure to work with! He was patient, deeply kind, supportive, clear, set great goals for me and coached and encouraged me every step of the way!

"Mr. Gallo has taught me musically for almost 7 years and I have been taking lessons with him now for almost 6. In my opinion, he is one of the best music instructors I have ever worked with. He is wise, informative, understanding, and flexible with scheduling lessons. He makes sure to do what is best for his students. Without him, I wouldn't be the musician I am today. From having to deal with the physical problems and even improving my musicianship, Mr. Gallo has been able to steer me in the right direction with advice from his past years of teaching and playing. Even after marching in the Boston Crusaders Drum and Bugle Corps for the past two summers, I have always resorted back to taking lessons with Mr. Gallo. With his help, I have been able to play the highest ranked solos and earned the highest evaluation in my state's Solo and Ensemble events. Now, I am a senior in high school and I feel very confident with my decisions of pursuing music in the future. I highly recommend Mr. Gallo as a trumpet, brass, and even music teacher."

How Can I Tell if I'm Breathing Correctly?

It may seem silly to ask whether you're breathing correctly. After all, it's something we do subconsciously each and every day. But when it comes to singing, there actually is a right way to breathe. Here, Chesterfield, MO teacher Lauren V. explains how to check... As vocalists, we are taught to sing using good breath technique.  What does this look like?  If you've ever noticed an athlete breathe, generally you will see the chest and shoulders rise.  When singing, good technique allows th …
