Thanks for checking out my profile! I studied piano for 13 years, including 4 years in college. Additionally, I studied organ for eight years, including four years in college.

I am passionate about music and can't wait to get started with you! *** Lesson Details *** I am laid back, but I do expect to see some effort put forth by the student at every lesson. I typically use the Faber method, but for students transferring from another teacher I will stick with the method they have previously used. After six months of weekly lessons, a student should be through the first lesson book. *** Travel Equipment *** Students must have an in-tune acoustic piano or appropriate digital piano/keyboard with piano-style weighted keys.

Daniel C. Cleveland, OH

About Daniel

I am recent graduate of Music Composition and Theory from Antioch College, and I am a veteran of many bands, having performed in some of the largest venues around the country. I favor a 'learning through experience' instruction style where my students can gain an in-depth understanding of music through the practice of their instrument. My students will quickly and simply learn the essentials of music theory, an understanding of what musical concepts are right for each situation and why, and the ability to compose and improvise musically while they are gaining the technical abilities and skills to flawlessly perform on their instrument. *** Lesson Details *** My students will learn about scale, harmony, and its correct application. I will instruct them to quickly grasp the lay-out of ...

Instructor is very good and easy to work with. I seem to be making progress (slowly).However, I found an "app" called ultimate guitar chords that give fingering for all notes and lets you hear alternate (simpler) fingering to test how it would sound.Depending on how that comes out will may change my plans to continue with lessons after the first four.

KathyI November 5, 2010
He's really excited about what he's teaching and he knows alot about music theory and the fretboard. He may need to slow down for me and stop referring to the notes until I actually catch up which may be longer. I really was excited to learn the things he taught but my fingers aren't catching up. That is also slowing down what I learned at first. He went out and got a requested James Taylor book for me that had TAB that I had never seen before and now I can relate it to what he's teaching. I also have a scales book that goes two octaves. Brian suggested learning one octave so that I can really know the notes.

Brian is an excellent teacher and works well with our son. He has helped him develop new key skills on the double bass, as well as gain confidence on the more challenging pieces his orchestra is taking on this season. On a personal level, Brian is very friendly and does a great job communicating both with our son and ourselves. He makes us feel at home, and our son enjoys working with him. We are looking forward to our son really growing through these lessons. I would highly recommend Brian to other students.

Cindy is an amazing piano instructor!

She is not only a great musician, but an equally great teacher. She was so patient with me as a struggled with reading notes, losing my place, and being motivated to practice. She was encouraging in her words, but also pushed me to improve, which I did in a surprisingly short time. I tribute my learning to her teaching methods and deep desire for the success of every student. She is both personable and helpful- patient and yet challenging. She truly loves her students, and cares that they do well.

I whole-heartedly recommend this instructor to aspiring pianists of any age or skill level.
