Peter has not only honed my daughter's previous skills, but introduced techniques and music theory that was completely new to her. Peter has sought out music that will challenge and interest my daughter specifically. We've been very pleased.
Brian
Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage.

Peter is exceptional. His instruction is simple, straightforward and progressive

Online Music Theory Teacher

Music theory is the basis for all things musical. A student will learn the rules, but I will not force a student to be confined by the rules. Rather, a student will use these rules to their own advantage so that they may excel in real world situations and not just for a grade for a class.

About Jeremy

As a spring 2020 graduate of McNeese State University I bring a fresh perspective to private teaching. I will adapt to meet the needs of any student and help any student achieve the highest level they can achieve. For me, the greatest reward is watching students succeed in what they love to do.
