Some of them want to have only basic skills and play popular music, others want to play piano professionally. If you are interested in playing piano, I would be happy to help!

Daren was incredible with our first time violin player. He helped our son learn the basics and explore his interest in violin. After 5 lessons we were sold that our son would want to stick with learning violin.

Apart from being an exceptional violinist, Daren is friendly, personable and a great teacher. I had never played the violin before but he broke things down in a way that made sense to me. His tips and foundational instruction brought results by the end of just the first lesson. I'm excited to learn more!

I have been teaching a wide variety of styles and genres such as, classical, jazz, funk, rock, pop, hip-hop, etc. for 10 years. My teaching style is unique because as a full time professional musician I also bring a "street smarts" approach to the "book smarts" type of lessons--you get the best of both worlds. All of my lessons are rooted in classical piano technique, so you can learn how to properly and efficiently play the piano from a technical approach. One of the first things we will do is set daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you! Students will learn how to read music and they will also learn how to play by ear. Let's get started!

AMAZING TEACHER!!! Inspirational musician and educator

I took 2 years of lessons with Keegan. In that time he guided and prepared me for a career as a self providing musician. Not only did he teach me anything I wanted to know and everything I needed to know about the piano, he connected me with local musicians and gave me opportunities to audition and sub on gigs.

I successfully auditioned for the Berklee College of Music, which he helped me prepare for. I can now say that everything I learned with Keegan was crucial for my survival and progress in this College.

Keegan doesn't only teach you how to play, but how to hear and how to practice and approach music with joy and humility.
Glenn
Keegan has an absolutely impeccable undertanding of both piano and harmony itself. There was no concept he couldn't clearly and concisely breakdown for me in ways easy to understand, but I also gained a lot from the little observations he would make along the way. Technique suggestions would come with either anecdotes or real life experiences to support and provide context to his finely-honed teaching methods. Could not recommend more highly for someone who really wants get INTO piano (especially jazz/classical)
Megan
I’ve just started taking lessons with Keegan this year and have already learned a great deal. Each lesson is significant. Keegan is a professional whose honest with your progress and truly works to help you move forward. I already see great improvements in my understanding of theory, playability, songwriting, music reading, and improvisation skills. I recommend his services whole heartedly.

"Anna is a highly skilled and thoughtful voice teacher. She helped me my adjust long-standing bad habit of straining my voice and pushing instead of using adequate breath. With her help, I learned to lift my soft palate, access my breath more efficiently, and create an all-around clearer and more beautiful sound. She instructed me in a variety of styles, from opera to contemporary musical theatre to pop. I felt Anna provided me with consistent technique while also giving great stylistic suggestions. I highly recommend studying with Anna if you want free your natural voice and expand your repertoire!"
