Teaches students:
Ages 5+

Teaching since:

Former attendee of North Carolina School of the Arts in Winston Salem as well as SUNY Purchase School of Music.

I've worked as a professional church choral music director, and have extensive experience teaching (in addition to piano) hand drums, drumset, singing, and beginning guitar -- all in a variety of genres.

I help singers achieve vocal freedom, connecting most directly to songs as well as their natural voice.

I perform around my local area in a variety of venues from upscale wine bars to weddings.

I live, teach, and play with passion -- and look forward to sharing that with every new student I meet.

Piano · In studio

After taking almost a 30 year hiatus from playing the piano, I decided to give lessons another shot. In my search for a teacher who works with adults and can accommodate my crazy work schedule, I found Isaiah through Amazon Local Deals. After my first lesson, I was sure this teacher was a good fit for my reintroduction to piano. I conveyed my goals of playing more difficult pieces and Isaiah tailored my lessons to do just that. He also provided advice on how to mentally approach a piece of music. I enjoy playing now more than ever and look forward to delving into some jazz and improvisation.
