I have over 20 years of experience playing as a professional musician. I teach students piano performance techniques for classical and jazz. Students are taught how to read music, chord and scale theory, improvisation, and how to play by ear.
About Carl W.

As far back as I can remember I have always enjoyed performing music. I can remember during my elementary school years how I would play drums during church service. Some days I would sneak in my dad's closet to play his saxophone. I began learning how to play saxophone in middle school and by the time I was in high school I was learning piano, performing jazz, and composing music. I went on to get a Bachelor of Music at the University of North Texas. I have been performing professionally for over 18 years. I also have taught band for 11 years in Dallas ISD. I enjoy teaching and mentoring other up and coming musicians. It's a joy to see another world open up to them through music. Through my warm and positive personality and experience as a certified music teacher and music performer, I understand how to meet the social and educational needs of each music student. I am well versed at solving problems and helping students thrive and reach their full potential. I think that I do this best by personalizing the instruction experience for each unique situation. I love to encourage students and help them discover the music in them. *** Lesson Details *** Like me, students can expect to enjoy the process. Students will discover that I am very encouraging during lessons. I keep everything upbeat and positive. I will help you come up with goals musically. I am very patient, all while coaching you so that you get positive results. *** Studio Equipment *** Upright Baldwin piano, electronic keyboard 88 keys, music stands, sitting area for parent, CD/iPod stereo. *** Specialties *** Jazz, Gospel, Pop, Classical, Various styles

Carl is an awesome piano teacher. He is patient and has a great personality. I’m impressed with what I’ve learned under his teaching thus far. He is highly recommended to anyone that’s looking to learn how to play the piano.

Carl is a great teacher. We signed up for only 5 lessons to try out with a new teacher. I think we do not have to look further. He is knowledgeable in both skills and theory.
