Hi, My name is Travis, and I have been playing trumpet for 17 years. I have been teaching for 8. I love working with new students, and became more focused on private lessons during my Sophomore year in college. Speaking of which, I earned a Bachelors of Music in Trumpet Performance from the

Travis does a great job! I noticed an improvement after the first lesson my son had with him.

Travis is a wonderful, encouraging & enthusiastic teacher. My son (10) loves going there. He learns a lot and progresses quite quickly - and at the same time it’s always fun.
Hannah B.
Travis was great. He paced the lesson right for my daughter and started instilling some fundamentals that she was missing. He is kind and friendly. And a great musician!

Private Piano Teacher

I have been playing piano since the age of six. Originally classically trained, I made a change to learning Jazz after hearing it on the radio one night while still in high school.

I began my teaching career in 2007, providing private piano instruction to beginners at a small, privately owned music school in Laurel, Maryland.

After the school closed it's doors in the Fall of 2011, I continued working with many of the students privately. It is these efforts I continue to this day.

Having the opportunity to work 1 on 1 with students and see their progression and development on a week to week basis is a truly, rewarding experience that I feel fortunate to be a part of.

*** Lesson Details ***
Although the approach you take with each student will be different, basic standard requirements will consist of:

1) Being able to locate notes on the piano in relation to middle C

2) Being able to recognize notes on the staffs and play them in the correct locations on the ...

Ian is a wonderful piano instructor. My 6 year old has been with Ian for some time now and I must say his patience is exceptional. He teaches in ways that my son can easily remember and makes the lesson fun. My son always looks forward to his piano lessons and he has learnt a lot in 2 months. I have had some experience with piano instructors but Ian is exceptional. I highly recommend him as an instructor to other children

Ian is a great guy, very patient. My son and I both take piano lessons from him and we are really enjoying it!

Ian is a very flexible teacher. I would recommend him as an instructor.

I’ve been delighted with my lessons with Semyon from day one. I had studied classical piano as a child but took a hiatus of several decades, and was somewhat nervous about starting up again. Semyon has put me at ease, and is so enthusiastic and encouraging, it’s contagious. He also has a focus on technique that I was looking for (scales and Hanon so far, which I know I need!). He knows his stuff but doesn’t overwhelm me with too much too soon. As an adult student, I couldn’t be more pleased with my choice and highly recommend him.
Patricia
As a retiree who has recently returned to piano after a decades-long hiatus, I knew I’d need a teacher with experience teaching adults. Semyon is proving to be excellent. He is a skilled musician and teacher whose approach combines enjoyable piano pieces, exercises for agility and the fundamentals of scales and theory. He is patient and responsive to what I want to accomplish. I have learned in each lesson, seen improvement each week, and enjoy the diversity of assignments. In short, i’m having a grand time and highly recommend him.

Amazing with my 10 year old daughter
Tracey
We met Katie a few months ago and we’re so glad we did! She is kind, compassionate and patient. She has taught my daughter how to expand her vocal range and she is helping to boost her confidence by encouraging her to perform on stage. I really feel that my daughter has greatly improved since she started lessons with Katie and I know she’s only going to get better with Katie as her coach. Finally I just have to add that Katie has a beautiful voice. The first time I heard her sing I got chills and when she sang at a group performance I actually got teary eyed. Her voice moved me because she had so much emotion and that’s exactly the kind of coach I want for my daughter.

Mrs. Sherman is a wonderful music teacher. My daughter started in her class at preschool when she was 2 years old. She was shy and timid but Sherman’s music class really helped her shine. She loves singing and playing the piano! She’s got amazing rhythm and Sherman really helped bring that out in her. Sherman has such great talent and the teaching skills to go with it. She’s great with children and it shows much she enjoys what she does

You want to learn or improve musically or artistically. You live near me or somewhere thousands of miles away. Online lessons can be surprisingly beneficial. I use novel methods for tracking progress, assigning lessons, sharing links, videos and more. In-home and in-studio are great fun and much is accomplished. Within the first few lessons, your piano playing, singing or calligraphy will improve dramatically. Every problem has a solution! I specialize in helping students who are stuck. With my great love for music and art and my love for my students, success is just around the corner.

About Marty

"Keith is an amazing teacher. My 7 year old son likes him very much. Before the lessons I worried our boy couldn’t build his interest in playing piano, just lose his enthusiasm after a while as the 7 years old always did. But Keith make me totally worry free, my son likes him very much, and he really knows how to build the kid’s interests and confidence while learning. Now my son enjoyed himself very much with Keith in their piano time. We are so lucky to find Keith."

"After one lesson with Mike our 8 year old came home and went straight to the piano to play! He then thanked me for taking him to lessons!! He had lessons for almost a year prior to this with a different teacher and we couldn't get him to practice let alone be grateful for his lessons. Mike is awesome and well worth the 30 minutes it takes us to get to him."

"George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far."

6 Piano Songs to Help You Learn Major and Minor Scales

Need to work on your major or minor scales? Piano songs abound by both classical and contemporary pianists that can help you improve your skills. Here, St. Augustine, FL Heather L. shares her recommendations.    Even as a piano teacher, I can be sympathetic to students who find themselves practicing major and minor scales over and over without any variation. Scales are often cited as the least favorite part of taking piano lessons. Sometimes, well, a lot of the time, the best way t …
