Leanna is incredible. She's kind and patient and extremely easy to work with, which is rare for someone with such deep experience in a field. One thing that continued to stand out and amaze me is her unbelievable ear. Even in remote sessions via zoom, she could tell immediately if one note in a chord or progression was off, and helped me fix it. I've heard the same from other students of hers.

If you're a serious student, considering music as a career, or in any competitive sense, Leanna is an irreplaceable ally with the skill to push you further than you may have thought possible. Absolutely recommend.
Zachary
As a beginner, taking lessons with Leanna has offered a structured approach to learning the fundamentals of piano, along with developing good technique, which has made the process less daunting. After only a couple of lessons, I feel more confident not only in my playing, but also in understanding elements of music theory (like reading sheet music) that I expected to be more difficult to grasp.
Sonya T.
Excellent goal-oriented teacher! Leanna is able to provide effective feedback and instruction to an advanced student like myself. I was impressed with the detailed coaching provided in the online environment.

Private Piano Teacher

Hello! My name is Kyle Herridge and I have 10+ years combined experience in music education, performance, and songwriting! My passion lies in two things: music and teaching. I remember how amazed I was as a child discovering music and the potential that it held and I want to pass that sense of wonder on to my students. I enjoy approaching each lesson with a mindset that fits the students thought process to help them understand music in their own way.

I have 2 years experience in public education as a choir director, piano director, and general music teacher for elementary and middle school students. I also have 8 years of teaching private lessons 1-on-1 and in a group setting. I am a piano accompanist for Frisco ISD and have previously performed in concerts for Ector County ISD and Odessa High School.

I’ve composed music for live podcasts, online video games, potential upcoming TV shows, and local music groups. I’ve been involved with several music projects, including lead ...

I enjoy teaching piano to beginners as well as intermediate students. I believe in making learning piano fun for students. Lessons are divided into playing for part of the lesson. Learning fundamentals of reading music is important to me. Students spend the second half of their lesson learning to read music. I have a lot of fun activities to help students learn note reading.

When you take piano lessons with me, we'll cover music theory to piano exercises designed to build strength and coordination. We’ll play a wide range of pieces from beautiful classical pieces to your favorite pop music. We’ll break the music down and figure out how it was composed and why it works. And we’ll work together to help develop your sense of rhythm, melody, and harmony so that you can sit down and truly express yourself in impromptu jam, join a band, or write a hit song.

About Kris

Music is a rewarding art with infinite depths - the approach you take to learn it should reflect this. When you take piano lessons with me we’ll cover all sides of musicianship, with a focus on building creative ability. Your classes will be varied and fun, from useful music theory to piano ex

I feel so lucky to have discovered Kris on TakeLessons. Every lesson begins with him checking in on my progress in a variety of different areas and every lesson ends with notes of our session and different areas for me to practice before our next session. There's always a great mix of homework types that Kris lets you explore in a way that is organic and fun for how you want to learn. He will work with YOU to help find the lessons that inspire you to keep practicing and staying engaged. We also spend a decent amount of time on music theory and composition, so I feel like I'm actually learning the instrument and not just following patterns. Lastly, Kris has a high level of empathy and is great at encouraging his students. He always makes me feel good about the progress I'm making while still challenging me to be better. I can't recommend Kris enough.
Hershey
Kris is great .. always positive and upbeat. Clearly is masterful at understanding music theory and its applications to the piano. Working at a rapid pace and after just 3 lessons, I feel like I understand the piano. I would say that my understanding of some music theory (as a guitarist) helps me keep up with Kris, but he is a great listener and pauses when necessary.
Nicole
Amazing instructor. I've come so far from working with him.
