Overview

A native of Raleigh, North Carolina, Caleb began playing piano at the age of 5. Throughout his childhood he took private lessons in piano and voice. Caleb has a Bachelor of Music degree from Bob Jones University in Greenville, SC and a Master of Music degree from USC, where he studied under pianists Marina Lomazov and Joseph Rackers. Caleb's work with students of all ages spans far beyond teaching, having worked for two summers as a staff collaborative pianist at Interlochen Center for the Arts in northern Michigan and playing for numerous children's masses and concerts. While he enjoys the opportunity to perform, Caleb's primary pursuit is teaching, using his professional experience to educate students by exploring the beauty of music. He teaches students their favorite songs as well as fundamentals and techniques required to achieve their personal goals.

Caleb comes highly recommended from the Hannibal Family. My daughters (Sydney and Reagan) took over 2 years of piano lesson under the guidance and supervision of Caleb, through the USC School of Music, and found him to be an excellent choice for them. Not only is Caleb very knowledgeable and devoted to teaching in the area of music, he's also a great motivator and excellent with children because of his patience and passion for the arts.

Caleb was a great instructor. My son Tarun started taking Piano lessons when he was 7. Caleb was very patient with my son who can be very difficult to teach. Tarun has had another teacher since then but he still talks about Caleb. I would not hesitate a second if I had to pick Caleb as our Piano instructor if had a chance.

Before moving to Georgia, Caleb served as the director of music at our church in South Carolina. He not only showed great sensitivity and versatility as a musician and arranger; he also proved to be a man of character, kindness, and humility. It was a joy to serve with him, and those who have the opportunity to study under him won't regret it.
