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.
