I am a professional touring musician and I have passion for teaching others. I have a jazz piano degree from the University of North Texas and have been blessed to travel the world with several artists in various genres of music (Eminem, Rihanna, David Foster, Babyface, Jessie J, Leon Bridges, Zendaya, Eric Benet, Tamela Mann, Chrisette Michele, and many others).
To build a solid foundation for learning piano, I like to incorporate a little bit of music theory into each lesson.
In the most humble way, I can assure you that there is no other piano teacher in the DFW area who has the diversity, experience, and teaching style that I possess.
I design all of my lessons to fit the passion and personality of each individual student, and together we identify your goals and develop a plan that will help you achieve them.

I’m truly looking forward to working with you.

Erskine is absolutely fantastic! He’s a wealth of information, having insight from both the road and the classroom. Great teacher, and I still find myself using the piano exercises I learned from him to this day. I’ll never forget one of the most valuable lessons he taught me. “People will forgive bad notes, they will not forgive bad timing.” Couldn’t recommend him more!

Erskine is the real deal! I enjoyed my time as his student and recommend him for all levels. He challenged me in every lesson and encouraged me to keep going further. If you are looking for a piano instructor, Erskine is the guy!!

Erskine of Key Element is a very skilled, professional, and friendly music teacher. He provided lessons for both my young daughter and myself. As a beginner to music, he was very patient with my daughter. Me, being a piano player by ear, Erskine provided me with exercises, tools, and even recommended an app to help with learning music theory and reading scales. Again, I HIGHLY recommend Key Element if you are looking for quality services. He is one of the best.
