Hi everyone!

It is a pleasure for me to teach music. I have been teaching piano and cello for more than ten years. All my students no matter which level of playing are having a good quality time in the lesson. Through my lesson, student learns music from different genres such as music theory,music history, ear training and music appreciation. Because of that, my student always tends to learn quicker than they expected.
Besides teaching, I also perform. My philosophy in music learning is that, it is never easy to learn an instrument. Therefore, learning in a creative atmosphere and giving out precise guidance is not only good for students, but also good for me. By exploring music together each week, it will be a fun and engaging experience for both of us towards music learning.

Alice is the best! I have had multiple piano teachers and she is by far the most patient and professional instructor I have had. My playing has literally improved significantly since studying with her. I highly recommend her!

I've been teaching piano for over 25 years and have taught students from 4 to 70. I try to show each student how to analyze the music to find patterns that make learning notes and rhythms easier.
I also emphasize strategies for practicing that make learning new material a quicker and more efficient process.

I love teaching beginner piano at any age level. While my main instrument might be trumpet, I have also been playing piano since I was a kid. This is a great tactical instrument to start any student on and to learn the basics of how music works.

I'd love to help you find a budget friendly piano that is also a quality instrument to learn on. Let me know if you have any questions.

About Nick

I am a 29 year old, energetic teacher of almost any instrument, with my main instrument being trumpet. I have my masters in jazz studies from The University of North Texas, near Dallas Texas. I also have been teaching since 2008! As a performing musician in the DFW area my goal is to help stude

My son started taking lessons a year ago, Nick used his strengths to help him learn. He has become inspired with the trumpet, and started to play a little every day.
Jose
I am taking online lessons with Nick, and he has helped me to understand what it is to be a musician. Before I started taking lessons, if someone asked me to play something, I was not able to do it without getting a sheet of music out and struggling A LOT. Now I am starting to be able to play the music I want to play, both by ear and reading. He teaches much more than just playing band music. I wish I could take more than a few lessons this summer.

I have a 8 year old daughter and 10 year old son both have been learning Piano for the last 2 years. Nick takes a holistic approach in teaching piano as opposed to sticking with the book. It includes creating a passion about listening different music, learning scales and chords outside of the book. I have recommended Nick to all my friends

I have been playing piano since I was 6 years old! I love to work with beginner students and give them the tools to be a great piano musician. It's also very energizing for me to work with intermediate students to hone your skills. I focus on proper technique, basic music theory, and a wide variety of repetoire, all while having fun together! I cant wait to help you learn to play.

I typically begin students on the Alfred Music Library, and then move to more classical repetoire, supplementing with pieces or genres that the student has interest in!

Typical lessons will include warm ups (scales, arpeggios, other techniques to warm up the fingers), working on repetoire (may include folk songs, broadway/disney, pop, worship), music theory (note and rest values, key and time signatures, interval recognition, ear training, note recognition, etc.)

Materials that students will need are a piano/keyboard of their own, two lesson/recital books recommended by me, and a theory book.

Brittany is an accomplished pianist with much experience in performing. Brittany is available for beginner and intermediate student piano lessons. She has been playing piano since the age of 6, and has received 2 years of formal training at the collegiate level. Brittany focuses on having fun, all

Brittany works patiently, yet challenges my daughter to perfect her skills. She gives encouragement during the lessons. I usually clean my kitchen during lessons, but I'm able to hear the lesson being taught. I can hear the smile in Brittany's voice when my daughter learns to do something new.
Kathy
Brittany is a talented, patient musician. I am a 50+ year old woman that took lessons many years ago and started up again with Brittany last summer. I instantly felt comfortable with her, and am not only learning about notes, and fingering but also about theory. She's awesome & I'm learning so much.

I'm enjoying my lessons with Annie very much. My lessons are usually in home but until the stay at home restrictions are lifted the online lessons are working out much better than I had anticipated.

"If you're reading this, you are very lucky because you've just found the most amazing music teacher!
Our son has studied piano with Joao for the past four years. He started with Joao when he was six and continues to this day. He loves Joao. Joao is a patient, intuitive and adaptive teacher that provides incredible instruction, in any music genre. He honed in on our son's musical interests early on, making learning piano fun and interesting. We often say, Joao is not just teaching our son piano, he is giving him a music education, introducing him to an array of amazing pieces from different genres. He's a rare talent both as a teacher and musician. We feel incredibly lucky to have found him. You will too!"

"It is with pleasure I must let you know that Lucian is the very best instructor I ever had. He is patient and stick to his method. I learned so many techniques with him that family and friends can't believe that I could progress at such a pace. I would recommend Lucian for any age groups."

I would love to resume taking piano lesson although I have health issues not completely resolved. I have to be around a humidifier and I must avoid humidity. I hope in the future I will be able to built on the foundation I received from Mr. Williams. I thank you.

5 Little-Known Factors That Affect Your Piano Posture

Proper piano posture: the words alone are enough to make any pianist wince, straighten up, and make every effort to maintain it, at least for a few minutes. You may not realize that when you’re playing the piano, your posture is a key factor in your technique and whether or not you feel at ease practicing the instrument. Because practicing is a repetitive activity, it’s important to do it well. Otherwise, you risk reinforcing bad habits through repetition. If you struggle with ma …
