Hi! My name is David and I love to teach piano. Music is my favorite thing ever. Performing, accompanying, teaching, listening, anything with music, I'm in hog heaven. Every kind, any genre. I love 'em all, yes, even country.

I teach both pop styles (rock, r&b, jazz, etc.) and classical (Debussy, Beethoven, Bartok, etc.). If you just want to learn some keyboard skills together with theory (like for producing) but you're not interested in necessarily *reading* music, I'm one of the few piano teachers that's ready, willing, and able to teach you how to play without tying everything to musical notation. Or, I can teach you to rock some Shostakovich. Or accompany your choir. Or write songs. I have no agenda other than helping you grow as a musician. What path that takes is entirely up to you.

I'm a caring and empathetic teacher, and I make learning fun! Questions? Please ask!
