I took many levels of piano in college, learned how to play quick accompaniments, scales, chords and more; then started immediately playing background piano gigs. Want to learn how to dazzle a crowd with some easy approaches to piano comping and soloing?
Let's start here!

About Michael
No need to be nervous before my lessons. I have taught lessons to ages 6 to students in their 70's! My lessons have a comfortable atmosphere where students can be okay learning with mistakes; through trial and error. I always keep a light mood with quick bits of humor. I teach in a relaxing way, but at the same time you may expect to leave with new musical knowledge every lesson. I enjoy showing the connections between music and other areas of study and life. I always finds ways to work a student's personal interests into lessons. I always strive to help students learn how to practice in an efficient and organized way.

I am a published composer and active performer/teacher/conductor with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Education and a Master's Degree in Conducting!

Knightdale, NC

Student lessons are designed and planned according to the his or her knowledge of music and level of playing as the student progresses. I teach the very beginner and those who have advanced in their playing.

About Charles
Charlie is a certified music teacher, who teaches in areas surrounding Wendell and travels to teach in the Raleigh, Zebulon and Knightdale areas. He teaches in his home in Wendell and travels to other areas on certain days. (See availability)

He first began teaching guitar and piano during his music studies at the University of Southern Mississippi in Hattiesburg, MS. At the university and after receiving his degree in music education, he has taught and performed in various musical settings and venues which has included the genres of classical, jazz, blues, rock, folk and country. Besides teaching and performing, Charlie also is a songwriter who writes songs for his groups performances and teaches his more advanced students songwriting.

Drawing upon his education and experiences as both performer and teacher, he strives to rel
ate his background to his student's learning experiences and progress. As each student comes with his or her individual musical wants and interests, student lessons are designed to meet these needs of a particular student. Charlie has young students of ages 5 to 14 as well as students of upper ages. According to a student's level of musicianship (beginner, advanced or in between), students are taught how to read music, music theory in relation to their progress, chords, scales and how to write/compose their own songs. He has designed a method of teaching which is full of great musical exercises & fun illustrations for the young student to enjoy while learning skills on their instrument.

For example, students can began with simple fingerings of chords & beginning melodies played in slow rhythms to allow the student to develop at a comfortable pace. Students that can not read music notation begin simple reading exercises of note recognition, time signatures, note values, eye hand coordination and more.

*** Lesson Details ***
I design student lessons according the age, playing level and music related interests as lessons can cover a broad range of interests and musical styles. For my beginning students- to develop their understanding of playing chords and rhythms,
I teach chords as they relate to musical keys and some common rhythm patterns used in many popular songs.

For guitar students, I have designed & developed my own materials for guitar (sheets & accompanying CD) which guide students in practicing chords progressions, strum/rhythm patterns & scales/melodies in relation to chords. My students have shown much success in these methods of concentrating on developing that essential sense & feel for playing different rhythm styles. Piano instruction is centered on learning to read music notation and music theory as it relates to the student's progress.

As students advance, more emphasis is placed on improvising on melodies, different approaches to soloing and chord extensions and substitutions. Also, students are taught music theory as it relates to their progress to enable them to create their own music.

I have a good selection of method books and materials to fit each student's level of musicianship and choice of playing style(s) to extend upon their interests and goals.

My approach to teaching is to make lessons fun and enjoyable in a comfortable and relaxed setting to allow the student full
concentration on each lesson. But, also to provide the necessary guidance and encouragement to challenge and motivate students to improve and develop natural strengths and new skills.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a good selection of materials (many I've developed), extra instruments if needed and recording equipment. The student will need the instrument and an amp for electric guitar.

*** Specialties ***
Teach theory as relates to students progress- examples, chords as relate to major scales, understanding of I IV V chords
in popular music genres, develop knowledge of chords & rhythmic sense before learning songs. I teach in styles of blues,
rock. jazz, country and classical.

I began piano lessons with Charlie as a total beginner and he quickly helped me find my footing. He was always patient and encouraging and asking questions designed to make sure the lessons were structured in a way that would most efficiently achieve my own personal goals. I'm usually a pretty nervous person, but Charlie has a warm presence that makes it easy even for people like me to be able to open up and focus on what's important, the music. I highly recommend him to anyone who's been thinking about learning the piano but hasn't quite been able to take the plunge yet.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are informal and engaging. I do not follow a strict schedule and leave room for creativity and spontaneity. I follow the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program curriculum, a national standard and pioneer in music education, and I encourage my students each year to take the exams for musicianship and theory for the appropriate grade level. I incorporate my classical piano training in my lessons, and my interests span from jazz piano, gospel, to contemporary music. My teaching philosophy entails the acknowledgment that each piano student is different and that is why I'm a firm believer in having a personalized yet structured lesson, so that it promotes creativity while strengthening the technical aspect of each student. My teaching style consists of intense training in virtuosic technique while incorporating musicality and expression into the music. My method of teaching is one that is driven with motivation, dedication, consistency, and persistence. I am very enthusiastic about sharing my knowledge of music to anyone who is interested in making music a fun and wonderful learning experience.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a mid-sized music room, with an upright piano, a digital keyboard, guitar, recording equipment, and a computer in the studio.

I've been playing piano ever since I was in elementary school, and it's proven a valuable asset as I've continued my career as a musician. No musician can afford not to know piano, let alone how to read and play sheet music, and anyone who wants to pursue music, or just the arts in general always benefits from it.

About Dave
Hi, my name is Dave Muto, and I've been teaching guitar & bass for over 13 years. Working as a professional musician, I've made the time to teach students of all ages. Teaching has been my passion alongside performing since I first picked up an instrument, and I look forward to meeting and working with you all soon!

I teach beginning and intermediate piano for adults and children. I will teach you to read music and understand the theory that goes behind it. Like teaching voice I start with a classical foundation then build from there, along with scales, arpeggios, chords/structure, etc. Then from there we dive into whatever music you wish to play. Whether you want to work through books like Faber's Piano Adventures, or Alfred's Adult technique books or you just want to learn to play your favorite songs, I will help you navigate how to play!

Students can expect to develop a solid foundation in piano method. The students will learn proper form, common scales both 1 octave and two, finger positioning, and reading chords as well as fundamental music theory.

About Kenneth
It all started when I took my first drum lesson in the 4th grade. From then on, I wanted to play whenever I could. I played in all my school bands from middle school to high school. Graduated Southern University, home of the world famous "Human Jukebox" which I was a member of for 3 years, as well as playing for my church since I was 13.

Along the way I have had the honor of meeting and learning from respected musicians such as Lawrence Jackson (former director of SU Bands), Herman Jackson (Brother of Randy Jackson), Jerry Lee Lane (Marching percussion pioneer) and countless others.

As a drummer that has played in all kinds of styles and venues, I can teach any skill level from the first time picking up sticks to making good drummers great and great drummers legendary.

Using my experience as a school band director (4 years), I
will come up with a customized lesson plan for each of my students that will stay on the best possible path to success. It is also because of this experience that I am also able to teach all concert/jazz band instrument method (ex. trumpet, flute, electric bass, etc.)

I have been involved in music since I was about 8 years old. I began by taking drum lessons and my teacher inspired me to always go above and beyond when it comes to your instrument. It is my hope that I can bring that same enthusiasm and inspire future students the same way.

As an experienced musician, composer, and teacher, I've been trained by some of the best music professionals in the PNW. After 6 years of teaching violin and piano, I know how to best fit my students needs. Whether you're a beginner or intermediate player, we'll work on developing fundamental skills. In our lessons we'll focus on technique, music theory, sight reading, learning your favorite music, and most importantly how to be relaxed and have fun! I believe the best musicians are the ones who play because of their love for music. If you're looking to become a better player who's willing to practice and have fun, send me a message and let's get started!

About Peyton
At a very young age I discovered my passion for music. As a child I was involved in numerous state choirs, prestigious orchestras, and symphonies. In college, I studied piano performance, music composition, and played violin in the Western Washington University Symphony. Throughout my music education I was instructed by some of the greatest teachers and conductors in the PNW, all of whom used different teaching styles and techniques. I've taught both piano and violin for 6 years and incorporate what I've learned to personalize lessons for each student.
In my experience, people learn best when they enjoy the music they're learning and become aware of their progress and accomplishments. I encourage my students to be patient when learning a difficult piece or gaining new skills. Like anythings progress takes a little time and hard work, but
that doesn't mean you can't have fun along the way!
