I provide piano lessons that (if desired) can be combined with Classical studies of famous composers, musical time periods, and education concerning the history of music.

About David H.

My name is David, and I am an experienced piano teacher and voice coach for both male & female voices. In 2015, I was the Music teacher at a small (K-8) private school in Citrus Heights, California. There, my duties included providing individual lessons with students as well as classes in group settings.

I grew up learning piano from a private teacher (who's teaching methods were incredible and who I derive most of my musical teaching abilities from) starting at the age of 5.

In High School, I performed with our traveling Chamber Choir for multiple years, then went on to join the Cathedral Chamber Choir in college (the School's most Elite singing group).
At John Brown University (JBU)(Siloam Springs, AR), I studied as a Piano emphasis Music Major whilst also providing lessons part time.
If desired, I do have referral contacts of some past students of mine, if you'd like a third party's personal opinion.


I teach all ages (kids, adults, you name it).

Learning music is a process that can start at any age. Doesn't matter if your child is 3 years old or if you are retired and would like to learn as well. The 'key' ingredient is your desire!

My piano lessons include: music theory, ear training, sight-reading, piano techniques, and performance.

Voice lessons include: vocal exercises for improving your articulation, breathing, improving vocal range, ear-training, & vocal development.

My rate is $30/ 40 minutes.
I currently have a modest upright piano at my home & am happy to provide lessons using it, but I am also more than willing to provide lessons in YOUR home. Its obviously more preferred that you have a piano / keyboard of your own to use for lessons and practice, but if the need exists, I am also able to bring my portable keyboard with me to lessons. The price may vary (only slightly) based on rate of travel time & gas.
Text, call, or e-mail me via Craigslist to schedule a discounted first lesson and to get more information.

I will do my best to help share the wonderful world of music with ANY and ALL that desire to learn.
I look forward our lessons!

David is not only a delightful person, he's also an excellent piano teacher. I'm a piano teacher myself yet I needed some help with improvisation--my weakest link. He patiently walked me through adding chords and harmony to a melody. I learned a lot of new ideas, such as leaving out the emotive third interval...that's better utilized in the right hand. He demonstrated how to take a familiar classical piece, namely Mozart's Rondo Alla Turca, and play it completely by ear. His musicianship is lovely and he is patient and thorough in his explanations. His knowledge of music theory is complete and sound. I highly recommend him to anyone looking to start or continue music lessons. He is truly passionate about music and his profession.

What a great teacher! He was so patient and understanding and really took his time to help me with what I needed. I am in school for audio enginnering and was not getting the help from my instructors that I needed and he came through and made it all way easy to understand and was super chill to work with. I highly recommend him for anything musical that you might need to know and will definatley will be working with him again! Thanks you so much David!

Best instructor ever!

David is so friendly and enthusiastic about the piano.

He has taught me so much. I now understand chords, octaves, key changes and how to read music! I highly recommend this guy.
