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, and I've been teaching guitar & bass for almost 15 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 wit

I feel lucky we found Dave! My son who is 11 yo was having a hard time with his other piano teacher. Dave is patient, friendly and encouraging. What I really love is that Dave notices where my son is having a problem and comes up with exercises to work on that issue!
Julian
Dave is a great teacher and has helped me for 2 years whenever I have a problem he takes time out of the lesson to help me on a specific instruction. He pushes me to do better but we still go at a place we’re I am comfortable.

My kids loved Dave and can’t wait for him to come back!

I've been teaching piano for over 12 years to students of all ages. I studied classical piano under the tutorship for an classical pianist from Oberlin Conservatory and am currently on the piano faculty at Music and Arts in Franklin, TN. I'd love to help you!

You will get a excellent foundation for technique, style, sight-reading, harmony, and repertoire than will transfer to any other genre. Beginning students will start with a foundation for technique and apply these to basic repertoire, learn to read music, and play scales. Intermediate and beyond will build and improve on these skills to learn classical repertoire and more complex pieces.

Natalie is a NYU and BMI Workshop trained composer of songs, musicals, and concert music who has helped many songwriters find their voice and fine-tune their skills.

Beginner piano students will learn to read music and navigate the keyboard through fundamental exercises and simple repertoire selections. This is a great introduction for adults who wish to learn some music, music students who want basic keyboard skills, or younger children beginning their first instrument. Intermediate pianists can bring in whatever music they're currently working on, or we can pick out some new repertoire for you! Clarinetists looking to acquire some basic keyboard skills are welcome to double up on lessons as well!

About Adella

In 2020 I received my BA in Music Performance, graduating summa cum laude from the University Honors Program at Eastern Connecticut State University.

The student achieves what he wants by always getting his best version of what he decides to do.
I design a totally personalized method based on what the student wants to achieve. Since I'm from Colombia, I like to put some of my culture on the way I teach and the way I see music.
My main goal is to put the student at a point where he enjoys learning and also progresses based on his effort and interest. Enjoy life through music, enjoy music through life.....

Why Children Should Learn Piano as a First Instrument

Music is an underrated but extremely important part of a child’s education. The benefits of learning an instrument go beyond simply having a better lifestyle. Studies have shown how music improves the brain function, hand coordination, self-discipline, and hard-working habits of those who have studied it in their youth. Of all the instruments to choose from, learning piano is arguably the best. Let's look at some reasons why children should learn piano, and what makes this such a great first i …

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 …

What is the Difference Between Major and Minor?

Students often ask about the difference between major and minor. These terms have two applications in music theory. One use relates to chords (harmony). A second use relates to scales (modes). Both are related.  To understand these concepts deeper, you have to first understand intervals. An interval is the space between two notes. Intervals help to define the  relationship and interaction between notes. This also includes the formation of chords.  Third Intervals  The smallest inter …
