Dan was an awesome instructor - even after our first lesson I came away with a ton of actionable ways to practice and improve my playing.
Jack B.
I started my mission to learn how to play piano with zero prior knowledge or experience with Dan and I could not be more happy with my results thus far. Dan is an expert piano player there is no question about that. But more impressive is his ability to teach, having no prior exposure to piano lessons Dan was extremely helpful in introducing me to new topics and ideas that have helped me to improve as a piano player. He works based off of your own goals and is dedicated to teaching what you want to learn as well as what is necessary to learn in order to meet your goals. He is very flexible in scheduling lessons which is huge for me having a job who's schedule changes regularly. I will continue to take lessons from Dan in the future and highly recommend from my experience for anyone just getting into piano although I know he works with much more talented and experienced students as well.

Meghan dove right into the lesson, customizing it at the perfect level for our daughter's experience. We liked that she was prepared and maximized the time. She has a youthful personality and knowledge of pop songs which is a great personality fit with our 13 year old daughter. She also customized the lesson and song choice in a way that would appeal to my daughter. My daughter is actually excited to take lessons and is already planning her list of songs she wants to learn.

Hello! This piano course is meant as an introduction to this beautiful and practical instrument. We will look at the basics of technique, combined with easy songs and music theory if needed.

About Keith

I am a professional saxophone player and arranger who has worked for the evening music program of the University of Chile as a saxophone instructor and ensemble coach. During my studies at UNT I also served as a teaching assistant for the Jazz Arranging class and as a grader for Music Theory. A

Keith Daniels is an exceptional educator, arranger, and composer. During our shared time at the University of North Texas (UNT), I had the pleasure of not only being a student of his but also playing some of his awesome originals and arrangements.

Keith uses a structured approach that gave me a very solid foundation as a composer/arranger. He starts from the basics of harmony/instrumentation and progresses all the way to advanced orchestration and intricate harmony writing. His music notation software of choice is Sibelius, but I used Musescore when studying from him and I was able to learn everything he taught just fine.

One thing I like about him is that he can work at your pace. When I was studying with him, I was in a class with three other students. We were all at different skill levels, but he was able to help all of us progress at our own rate, giving us specific individual feedback depending on our skill. On top of that, he is bilingual in both Spanish and English.

I highly recommend Keith to anyone trying to improve their Jazz composition and arranging! He will seriously help you out big time just like he did for me.
Yeeun Kim
He is a great teacher! I enjoy the lessons with him a lot because he is always passionate and answers every question I ask with easy explanations and examples. He is super knowledgeable and friendly. His musical knowledge and suggestions always surprise me.
Edgardo B.
I had Keith Daniels as an Arranging teacher for a year. He is passionate about teaching, treats his students in a pretty respectful way, and always aware of the student's progress. Keith besides being an impressive musician is such a great human being, honest, patient, pretty open to new ideas, always on the vanguard of his topics, and a great listener who is always there to give you a hand in case you need it. I definitely recommend him, I've been growing with each session and changing my perspective of music in a positive way since I know him.

I teach the basics: scales, sight reading, and note recognition. It all ties into theory, so the student will be getting a two for one. Learning piano is how many people begin to appreciate their love for music.

Have you ever experienced an “aha” moment when trying a new task? I love the feeling when my students learn the WHY behind what they’re doing. It makes a lasting skill and enduring mastery. My 7 years of professional teaching has taught me how to tailor each lesson to guide students toward growth, and have a ton of fun along the way! You will build a strong foundation of musical fluency, ear training, theory, and wonderful technique. Music is a gift you can give your entire life. If you’re reading this, you’re ready.

I’ve been pursuing my love of music since I was 10 years old, taking piano lessons every week in Mrs. Blackburn’s home studio. She helped me develop a life-long love of music, and fr

Bo has been a great singing instructor. He has plenty of knowledge when it comes to music and teaching and it shows. He gives great, clear adjustments and is very good at explaining any musical concepts you may not know. I highly recommend Bo as a singing/piano instructor.

Bo is a wonderful teacher and musician. Singing in front of someone is incredibly nerve-racking, but Bo makes lessons fun and comfortable! I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improve their singing ability or learn piano.

Supportive, encouraging and very relaxed. Good pace.
Akshay S.
Gordon is an excellent teacher. The thing that stood out most about him is that he will let you learn anything you want! He doesn’t just read off a book, but asks you for what you want to play, and guides you through it. He also makes you more confident, and pushes your boundaries. The experience is highly interactive and entertaining. I have accelerated so fast through his teaching and I would highly recommend him!
Gerry S.
The reason for 3 stars is that the audio was terrible. Gordon sounded like he was in a tunnel , and I was getting feedback on my voice, it was very disconcerting and hard to understand. Difficult to learn under those circumstances. The video was just fair. Gordon is good, but the experience was not.
