Las Vegas, NV
View Full Profile

I am capable of teaching all levels/styles of piano/keyboard and am in regular practice on the instrument myself.

About Terry
Terry P. is a composer, producer, and a multi-instrumentalist specializing in guitar and piano. He has been teaching all types of people at all levels for over eight years at Axis Music Academy in Southfield, and has taught over 8,000 lessons. Terry has a Bachelors of Music with a concentration in Composition and Theory from Wayne State University. In 2012, Terry was awarded the prestigious Kresge Arts Fellowship in the performing arts category.
This is Terry's bio from the Kresge Arts In Detroit website:

Terry had already started making a lasting impact on the local rock scene – in his influence over other artists and his musical innovations – prior to studying music composition at Wayne State University. Terry has used this classical training toward his goal of elevating the musical consciousness of popular music audiences by
exposing them to compositional techniques they would otherwise never hear without listening to classical music. Terry, a multi-instrumentalist, has focused his efforts on the exploration of these techniques in contemporary genres, specifically progressive metal. In recent years, he has employed himself as a private instructor and has started scoring music for film.

*** Lesson Details ***
I make sure that lessons are fun for the student, and that the student is learning material that they like. At the same time, I make sure that my students become well-rounded musicians by teaching them skills in reading and music theory. Lessons are tailored to the student, and my approach varies with everyone I teach. I will fast-track you toward your goal while supplementing your lesson experience with exposure to new things that will challenge you in a fun way. I have learned to play almost every instrument and will teach just about anything, although I am strongest with the piano and guitar. I am open to teaching all ages, all genres/styles, and have even taught students with various disabilities. My extensive training also makes me a good tutor for undergraduate music students taking classes in ear-training and theory.
Beginning students should expect to be playing a handful of their favorite songs after studying with me for a few months, and as well they will have a basic understanding of reading notes on the instrument, and a basic understanding of music theory fundamentals. Advanced students will find that they are continually inspired and challenged.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I provide my own instrument and practice amp. for guitar/bass, the student must have their own instrument and amp. piano students must have their own piano and drum students must have their own drum kit. I can bring books and other materials and may recommend that students buy certain books etc.

*** Specialties ***
For piano, I specialize in classical, and can teach anyone from 5-year-old beginners to advanced players. I can teach any style.
For guitar, I specialize in metal and progressive rock. I can teach any ability level and any style.

Terry was awesome. My six and eight-year-olds loved working with him. They learned more in 5 weeks than they had in six months with a private teacher they had before. He challenged them with new things, which made them uneasy at first. But he showed patience and got them to build confidence while reinforcing the stuff that they had learned before. Instead of playing the same easy things over and over, he forced them to try new things which worked out great.

Piano instruction from beginners through advanced. Developing your playing skills to achieve the levels of performance you aspire to and develop confidence along the way.

About Barry
I have almost 30 years of experience teaching voice, working with choral groups, voice students as well as classroom music instruction. I hold a bachelor’s degree in Music Education as well as a Masters degree in music from an accredited school of music and have been performing both as a soloist and in vocal performance groups since I was a teenager. I bring to the vocal/music studio all of this experience as well as a heart to pass along this experience to others that desire to share the song that is in their heart. If it is your desire to sing, play the keyboard or guitar, please get in touch with me!

*** Lesson Details ***
When a student gets started with me , wherever their interest lies, I work to discover where they are on their musical journey, discuss some goals they would like to set for themselves and put a teaching and le
arning plan into motion.

For vocalists my primary goal is to assist anyone who is looking to improve the tonal quality and strength of their singing or speaking voice while reducing vocal tension and voice fatigue.

I facilitate singers of any level, age or style who seek to improve breath support, diction, range, tone quality, and ease of singing. This is achieved through a variety of singing exercises, fun vocal drills and creative singing games that we do in lesson time and with instruction on what to do at home.

For individuals seeking to develop basic musical understandings in theory, keyboard skills and guitar, I endeavor to start with were they are and take them to where they desire to be as a musician; opening up doors of music understanding and performance skills that help them on their musical journey.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard/Piano, Sound system, computer

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have a portable Keyboard if needed for in home keyboard lessons.

Children's Voice and Vocal Techniques for all ages. Beginning piano and Keyboard basics.

I teach note reading, technique, theory, composition and performance.

About Edward
My name is Edward and I have been playing music most of my life. I was involved in every form of music education that I could find, and took private lessons on guitar and piano for ten years. During this time, I learned that I improved when I performed music that I liked. I attended the College of Saint Rose in Albany, NY and received a B.S. in Studio Music in 1996. I then moved to San Diego, CA and started my own business teaching music. The lessons were taught at the students' homes and I incorporated the students' interests in teaching. I have also performed for many years and have written many songs that have been recorded and performed.

*** Lesson Details ***
My teaching method is unique; I never teach the same way for everyone. The main objectives I teach include performance, reading, ear training, theory, composition and improvisa
tion. I find that playing examples of music that you like is the best way to improve skills. I will recommend books that best suit your style and level. The main styles include (but not limited to) rock, blues, classical, pop, jazz and country. Please contact me if you have any other questions about my teaching methods.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a Yamaha 88 key weighted action digital piano with recording features. I also have music stands and amps for guitars. We have a smoke and pet free home. I also have a large collection of sheet music and music books available for lessons.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I will travel to your home. Clark County, NV

At 67 years old I was a little nervous picking up a new instrument. I chose Edward and am glad that I did. He is patient and listens to each request that I make. He's teaching me in a way that is comfortable and to my liking. He goes the extra mile to teach me only songs that I wish to learn along with hints that make it easier. I couldn't ask for a better instructor and would highly recommend Edward. if you choose him, you will be glad that you did.

Edward has been giving my older son piano lessons for about a year. Now he's started teaching my younger son how to play the guitar. Both boys look forward to his lessons every week. Edward does a great job with both of them. We've been so happy with the job he does- very professional, accommodating to their needs and is a wonderful person. I would give him the highest recommendations!

Las Vegas, NV

I am a guitarist by profession, but I studied piano as part of my conservatory training at UNC School of the Arts. I'm very capable of and would be happy to teach beginner piano.

About Michael
I moved to Las Vegas in August to pursue a doctorate of music in guitar performance. I'm also teaching at UNLV part time, and want to expand my teaching into the local community. I've been teaching for many years now, at universities, music stores and private in-home lessons like I'm offering on this site.

I aim to give my students the skills to pursue whatever they would like on the guitar. I'm a professional classical guitarist, but I got my start playing rock and roll and am comfortable teaching a variety of genres if the student wants to learn a specific style. I feel I am a great teacher for total beginners as well, I make sure the student has a rounded approach and avoids developing bad habits.

I met fellow classical guitarist, Michael, a few years back. I remembered him for his fun personality, stellar performance, and friendliness. Now that he is my classmate, I've gotten to know him better as a person and guitar player. I can say he is same in personality and friendliness as when I met him a few years ago, and his performances ROCK!

I sat in on every lesson Michael gave my daughter, who had not studied guitar before. He uses the time effectively, balancing sight reading, repertoire development, music theory (which he presents in very practical and immediately useful ways), and at all times instilling the technique necessary to sustain rapid progress. My daughter really enjoyed studying with him, and I really enjoyed watching her go from a blank slate to a guitarist you want to listen to. I completely and unreservedly endorse this teacher.

Henderson, NV

I mainly teach the Alfred method while buttressing my lessons with theory and techniques learned from college; however, I will use whichever method the student is most comfortable with. I like to have fun with it and make sure the student is enjoying his or her time playing and practicing the piano so there is a lasting connection with the instrument.

About Aaron
My goal is to spread the love of music and music theory to as many people as I can. I have been playing piano for the past 15 years and have had great teachers from whom I've learned great playing, composing, and teaching techniques. I have been playing guitar for 10 years as well. I'm in an alternative rock band, The Perks, based out of Las Vegas, and have experience composing and playing multiple instruments. I have a thorough understanding of music theory and hope to share what I know with my students. I'm a student at UNLV, I tutor autistic kids, and I love music.

Thanks for checking out my profile! You have come to the right place! I’m happy to offer my teaching services, backed by over 15 solid years of fulltime teaching and 40 years of professional musical experience.

Every student has a particular way of learning, and I quickly access this and lean instruction towards his or her process. I tailor the lessons so that you will learn with the best possible speed and comprehension. Visual learners can benefit from additional work with paper or with Finale or Sibelius (I teach both programs, BTW). Aural learners benefit from listening to me demonstrate, and from hearing different variations of a given piece. Technical learners benefit from tactile, direct guidance of hand position of motion.

Above all, a love of music is critical to effective teaching. The love for music should be shared between student and teacher. Let me assure you that there is, for me, nothing on this earth as special and personal as music. I do what I do because I love ...

About Charles
I’ve been an active musician for over 40 years. I performed in rock bands from middle school through high school until I started my training at Berklee. After graduating with a degree in composition, I resumed touring with rock and pop bands until my early thirties. For the next ten years I taught privately and released 5 recordings of art music that received enthusiastic reviews both in the USA and in Europe. Three of these recordings were electronic and microtonal in nature, and two were solo piano recordings. Also during this time I became a certified teacher in the State of Connecticut.

After this phase of my life, I took a position as head of the music department at Proctor Academy in Andover, NH. I ran every aspect of the department for 5 years before leaving to focus on my studies in film score music. After completing an 18-month
course with Music for the Media (London) I opened a studio in New Hampshire at the granite Media Center and scored 15 TV episodes and 7 films before moving to Los Angeles for additional opportunities. I’m currently living in Las Vegas, still playing and composing, and still loving the music!

Hi! My name is Lia Hwang and I have been working really hard to be the best piano teacher in Las Vegas. I have spent many hours into teaching students piano. There is nothing more rewarding than teaching.

I really hope that you will consider me as a prospective teacher for your child. I am not focused on making money. My main focus is to teach students long-term and to allow them the ability to eventually be independent from me in the future. I want the prices to be as affordable as possible. If there are any questions, please text me. I am receiving calls and questions all the time. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have.

I hope to hear from you soon :)

About Lia
The best way to contact me is through my direct phone number. I have been teaching for a couple of years and I have succeeded as a pianist and a bassist for orchestras and ensembles. I have done solo work and chamber work for ballets and orchestras. My experiences range from piano composition to teaching music theory. I have been playing the piano for 16 years; this includes being privately taught by my mentor Gary Reid. I also play the double bass for orchestra. I have learned the double bass for 12 years so far.
If you want to take lessons, please call me and we will set up your first lesson! Have a great day!

Some reviews:

"Lia is unfailingly patient with our children and never fails to say something positive about a lesson even if it was a difficult session. My sons are making steady progress with daily practice in spite of the
mselves. We love Lia and feel so lucky to have found her! ”

"Very patient and kind. Excellent references and accomplished pianist."

"Lia lives and breathes music. If you want to learn to play piano, or the bass - she is wonderful, and supportive- really great at giving technical training to make you better every time. My piano lessons with Lia are always the highlight of my week. Highly recommended!"
