My approach to teaching is simple. The primary goal is to have fun and enjoy the experience of making and creating music. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in music or just wanting to add a bit of a creative outlet to your life, I can help.

My specialties include jazz, r&b, and pop piano styles. I do teach a little classical but primarily to beginners only. My curriculum is simple. I try to teach you what it is YOU want to know and that which fit your needs. There are some fundamentals that we all must learn, but typically I can have you playing a song your first lesson. As you progress, you will be able to learn to play songs on your own and interpret simple chord charts with melody.

My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

Nicholas was very professional. I've been playing cello for 13 years and have played in many community symphonies. I've never had a private lesson and just learned what I was taught in grad school. Although I was skeptical on online lessons, Nicholas has already shown me some bad habits i have and how to break them and we're already moving on to some hard stuff. I'm excited to where my next 9 lessons will take me. Perhaps even with more lessons on the way. Thanks Nicholas!
Ava M.
Nicholas is amazing! He knows how to really explain the viola so that my 10 year-old understands. He’s also very kind.

I am an adult contemplating learning cello as a new hobby. Nicholas was very nice and answered all of my questions. I am looking forward to starting regular lessons with Nicholas.

I know Elizabeth as a colleague, and her work is beyond excellent. She's passionate about teaching and sharing her knowledge with other people as well as helping them to be the best that they can be! And, she's super flexible with scheduling, which is great if you're a Florida snow bird.

5+ stars!
Katie Taylor
My daughter was initially sad to hear that Elizabeth would not be visiting in-person (thanks coronavirus!), but now that we have moved to remote lessons she has been able to continue her learning and still looks forward to her online lessons every week! The transition was so painless, and Elizabeth helped us along to make sure things went smoothly. Her professionalism is truly unmatched!

We recently switched to online lessons due to the current circumstances, and I have to say that it is working out great! The transition was so easy, and Elizabeth handled everything so we didn’t have to worry at all. Her feedback is always prompt and insightful, and my son has been able to stay motivated and on track with no interruption whatsoever to his learning.

"Ahmad is a fantastic teacher, and not just for beginners but for experienced players as well!
I've been playing guitar for about 20 years, but haven't taken any formal lessons in the past 15 of those. I felt like I was in a rut with my playing so I started taking lessons with Ahmad a few months ago. He was able to immediately help me improve my technique and help me correct some inefficiencies that I didn't even notice I was doing. The word "inefficiencies" in the last sentence was chosen very deliberately because Ahmad has a great way of showing that there are multiple ways to play the instrument and not one specific "right" and "wrong" way.
I feel like I've made more progress in the last 4 months than I had in years."

"Keith's knowledge in music production and his skill level for playing the piano is impressive to say the least. As an instructor/mentor Keith has the ability to inspire and encourage students to learn. Learning music theory on your own can be challenging and frustrating, but Keith has the ability to explain it in a way where difficult concepts may become easy to grasp. The techniques that he has taught me has also made sight reading and playing in general easier and more enjoyable. Keith often gives me constructive criticism on some of my own music production that I bring in, and shares ideas with me on how I can build on a chord progression to take my production to the next level, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend Keith to anyone ready to learn."
