Whether you're a beginner or intermediate my piano lessons cater to both!

All ages are welcome! We will definitely learn songs, but in order to truly become an amazing musician you must also focus on building strong technique. Taking lessons with me will ensure that you’ll be able to learn songs and parts by ear. No more tabs! Here’s what we’ll focus on:
- building technique
- transcribing songs and solos
- learning theory
- ear training
- learning to read

Feel free to message me at any time if you have any questions!

I have taught piano since 2012. I prefer to take beginners, and I do especially well with younger students. I believe strongly in integrating music theory and ultimately moving students toward musical self-suffiency, rather than focusing exclusively on learning particular pieces.

This is a very great teacher. On my 3rd lesson, I was able to read music notes. I'm almost 50, and didn't know I could still learn to play. He is very smart, patient, and knows how to teach. He made learning to play piano seem very easy. I'm blessed to have had him as my piano teacher. Thank you Ryan!!!

Great teacher! With my first lesson with him, I am very confident that I can learn to play piano fast. He takes it one step at a time.

"Jesus has been really helpful in improving my technique and introducing me to challenging pieces. I have been playing piano for about 14 years and took a long break from working on my music. At first, I was skeptical about taking lessons again, but I decided to start roughly two months ago. Since starting lessons with Jesus, I'm playing pieces that I would have never chosen for myself on my own and tackling them even faster than I thought I could. Aside from learning new, advanced pieces, he is really helping me with my technique as a performer. Jesus fosters a welcoming environment and I genuinely look forward to my lesson each week. If you're an older student like me interested in piano, I highly recommend Jesus!"

"We went with online piano lessons at the moment due to COVID, but I was nervous about the format as the lessons are for my five-year-old daughter, so I was concerned the additional technology would be an impediment. Dr. Merkel was wonderful. He was friendly and encouraging to my daughter, ensuring she knew she could ask any questions she might have at any point. He absolutely made the technology work for us, and my daughter learned more than I would have thought possible in 30 minutes. She is counting down to her next lesson!"

Piano Technique Books & How to Use Them

“The most perfect technique is that which is not noticed at all.” ~ Pablo Casals ~  Technique is a paradox. On one hand, if you do not have the technique to play a difficult passage, you cannot master the passage. On the other hand, if you focus on the musical elements and what you are trying to express, the technique to achieve the musicality will come naturally. Those are the two opposing and contradictory thoughts about technique among musicians. Is technique something to be …
