I love having Charlene as my teacher. She is very personable, patient, and loves to help her student advance. She is very musically talented and knowledgeable and knows how to effectively pass on her knowledge in a clear, understandable way. I love that she sees exactly why I’m having a problem with something and exactly what I need to do to fix the problem. I feel fortunate to have her.

I've really been enjoying lessons and have been getting a lot out of them! Flexibility with scheduling concerns has also been well appreciated!
Baileigh B.
My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

Gail
As an older, beginner student, now 72, I appreciate Davis’ teaching to my specific needs for the past three years. My need, or quirkiness, was to learn music theory because I had to know the history of music and circle of fifths in order to understand the mechanics of the piano while I was learning to play. As a retired ICU nurse, rationale matters! To me anyway. Plus it helped me to read and understand music much faster. He recommended the college level music theory course books and continues to oversee my work and reinforce understanding. He’s so patient! I told my husband that I’d follow my hairdresser anywhere, Now, I say that about my piano teacher! I started at his studio in Edmond, Oklahoma and now I’m remote learning in his new studio in Cincinnati, Ohio. Davis is irreplaceable.
Lynn
Davis is a wonderful and talented instructor. He tailors lessons to fit the students needs and teaches with great passion and patience. My daughter has been taking piano lessons from him for almost three years and she enjoys every lesson with Davis. Greatly appreciate!
Monica
Davis has many special gifts, but best of all, he is patient. He shows compassion and gives kind thoughtful feedback to his students. He is flexible and let’s the students play the type of music they are interested in to help build confidence and that also encourages practice!

I was raised in the Suzuki method, trained in it, and I believe in it. It is the most effective school of education for new musicians who want to learn reliably. I've been teaching it 9 years.

I can talk to you for days about the method, but I will sum it up as quickly as i can.

1: Immersion
2: Daily Practice
3: Listening
4: Strong relationship between student, teacher and parent.

If the student listens everyday, practices everyday, practices what i tell them, and is made to love the music, you will learn. I've taught hundreds of students this way and when all the conditions are met, all my students have had success.

Piano lessons are structured with a focus on what the student needs. We ensure a strong with a foundation of scales, note reading, and ear training, to give the student the versatility to go in any musical direction they like, and make them a well rounded musician. The books I usually begin in for piano will either be Suzuki book 1 for piano or "Adventures ...

Dora is a very patient and enthusiastic teacher and my daughter cannot wait to go to lessons each week. In a few months Dora has taught her to read music and my daughter can play music that she knows, which is encouraging her even more.

Learning to Read Lead-Sheet Symbols

As a vocal coach, I often need to accompany my students on the piano as they practice their music. Without adequate time to practice or the necessary skills as an accompanist, this usually means that I have to fake my way through new music to the best of my ability. Fortunately, I can fairly successfully “fake it” on the piano with many pieces. This is because I know how to quickly read lead-sheet symbols, which are commonly provided with popular sheet music. Lead-sheet symbols, or ch …
