I have been playing piano myself for over 12 years and have been teaching for 7. I am classically trained, but also can incorporate more modern pieces if you are interested. My goal in lessons is to provide a solid foundation of technique, music theory and skill on the instrument while also exploring each individual student's interests and passions. I love working with my students to expand their skills and knowledge and can't wait to begin your musical journey with you!

I've been playing piano for over 25 years and teaching piano for over 10. I use a wide variety of piano methods to fit the individual needs of all my students. Students will learn how to properly care for their instrument, how to read music, music theory, instrument technique, practice techniques, ear training (how to play by ear), and repertoire. I even have my own experimental piano courses that I have developed myself. Group piano lessons are also available at a lower cost on Saturdays only.

Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

"I am a public school music teacher and Collin has been giving my 5 yo son piano lessons for about 6 months. I am very impressed with Collin's patience with a very active 5 yo boy. He instructs him in music "theory" as it relates to the piano, while also developing appropriate beginner skills. He gears his lessons to what my son wants to do at the time and Collin is very good at finding teachable moments.

Collin is a well-trained musician and has had instruction in music education and its theories and practices. He is very punctual and interacts with my son in a very friendly manner. I give Collin my full recommendation!"
