I have worked with students of all ages for nearly 20 years, but I especially love teaching kids who are excited to try a new instrument. I believe in teaching kids to not only earn high marks and excel in their work, but to truly love music. I have a bachelor’s degree in music, performed professionally in multiple styles and multiple music acts, and have developed musicians who have moved on to pursue music in professional venues. I take joy in playing music and I know you will too!

About Casey T.

I have been teaching students of all ages for nearly twenty years and I believe that instilling a love of music is the most important part. No matter the age, I am committed to making sure all my students are having fun and enjoying what they are learning. I also take care to make sure my students are achieving their own personal goals and many of my former students have gone on to pursue music at a college level or in national venues.
I have a bachelor’s degree in music with a specialty in classical guitar from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington. I have experience in writing and recording music, extensive knowledge of digital audio workstations, composing and recording film scores, music technology (MIDI and timecode), live music setup, live performances in multiple bands of multiple genres, and devolving talent in future generations of musicians.
I live in Southport NC with my wife and two daughters (5 & 7), both of whom are learning instruments and the joy of all music.

Casey does a phenomenal job of teaching our 12 year-old daughter keys. He's very patient and is able to teach her at her pace, while still challenging her to improve. Since beginning lessons with Casey, we've seen a tremendous improvement in her ability and look forward to what she can do next!

I grew up taking piano lessons, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Casey that I really gained confidence in my ability to play in front of an audience. I learned songs that I really enjoyed and that I still play six years later. I also took guitar lessons from him for a while, and I loved that he encourages you to know your instrument, to do your exercises, but also to just play what you like. His passion for music is evident in everything that he does, and he's a compassionate, knowledgeable instructor. I'd recommend him to anyone.

Casey is very encouraging knowledgeable! He made lessons fun and something to look forward to. I no longer take lessons with Casey, but now I’m pressuring a music career!
