Learn classical or worship piano with a professional teacher with 20+ years of experience.

Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read music notes, play basic chords and scales, and play a song from memory. As time goes on you'll be able to play various arrangements with ease and expressive musicality. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels, and I can't wait to meet you! Every student learns differently and learns at their own individual pace. To learn a new instrument or improve on your skills, I believe that consistency is key. I like to focus on creating a positive relationship with music, as a tool for processing and expressing yourself, as well as on learning musical goals. If you want to experience the joy of music and develop new musical skills at the same time, I'm the right teacher for you. I believe that music is therapeutic and can be a form of communication for those who are unable to find the words to express emotions. I believe in using a strength-based approach. Every person learns at their own speed and I am willing to go at whatever speed works for each student. Lessons will be fun, interactive, and hold a great learning component for both the student and myself as the teacher. I provide personalized feedback after each lesson to help remind every student of what they are working on.
About David W.

My number one goal is to help build a love and passion for music and boost student's confidence. I understand and appreciate different levels of experience and make sure to cater the lesson to the individual. Whether my students are young or old; whether they view piano lessons as a just-for-fun hobby; or whether you wish to take their playing to the next level - I am happy to facilitate all of this and more, as we work together to reach your goals. I approach music lessons with flexibility and patience. The joy of working one-on-one is that we can adjust the lesson to whatever the student brings to the table each time. Practiced a lot? Excellent! Show me what you can do. Having a difficult time with something? Not a problem; let me help. Had a tough week? It’s okay; I understand. We’ll take it slower today. I’m sensitive to my students’ needs, and I’m more than happy to make learning the piano enjoyable, whatever is going on. I offer 30-, 45-, and 60-minute lessons. 30 minutes each week is a great starting place. More experienced students usually prefer 45- or 60-minute lessons. The longer the lesson, the more opportunities for repeated practice, covering more material, and faster overall progress. Whatever lesson length you choose, you’ll get a lot out of it! Prices are as follows: $35 / 30-minute lesson $45 / 45-minute lesson $55 / 60-minute lesson Generally, we start with a sight-reading exercise. Then, we proceed to go over the songs the student has been practicing since last time. I provide feedback and coaching. When we’re ready, we move on to new music and assign it for practice. I’m your guide as the music gets progressively more challenging. When time allows, we have several miscellaneous activities to choose from, such as theory, ear training, and review. My students typically work on the side on a range of music from outside the books. I use an online program called Supersonics. It's included as part of studying with me. It's an interactive program that keeps you engaged in-between lessons. I teach all my piano students with the Piano Adventures method book series by Nancy and Randall Faber. There are four different versions of the books, depending on at what age the student starts, from Young Beginners through Adults. I love this series; I know it inside and out. More experienced students can also choose to incorporate more and more additional music into our lessons. I've been playing the piano for over 20 + years. I started teaching piano online in 2017.

I look forward to teaching you soon!

Amazing teacher!! For a person who is also a beginner, he is very passionate about the music he teaches and does not fail to help others who are also beginners in need. I totally recommend this to any who wants to learn about piano with him!
