I'm a young, enthusiastic piano teacher living in the Arlington area. My musical journey started when I was 10 years old when I received my first piano lesson. Since then, I have been studying piano with several amazing teachers, including some that have studied at the top music institutions in the nation, such as Eastman School of Music, University of North Texas, and the Peabody Institute. At current, I am finishing my Bachelor's in Music Media at the University of Texas at Arlington and have also obtained a Associate of Arts degree from Tarrant County College.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am a fairly laid back teacher, however I do expect my students to practice. After 3-6 months with me, you will have learned how to read music, learned all basic piano terms, and how to execute most basic piano techniques. Whether you have dreams of playing in concert halls or just for your friends in your bedroom, I am confident that I can help you get there!

*** Travel Equipment ***
I expect the student to provide a piano(not an electric keyboard) with 88 working keys, a metronome, and music books.

*** Specialties ***
In piano, I specialize in classical music. I teach from every period of music(Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and Contemporary).

Kayla is sweet and patient. She always starts her lesson on time and is reliable. My son really enjoys having her as his piano instructor.

Kayla as an instructor is great. However, she is unprofessional. She is ALWAYS (and this is no exaggeration) 10-20 minutes late for lessons. Most of the time without notification or apology. The proverbial "straw" was after we had to reschedule a lesson due to her being out of town. We scheduled a 1:45 lesson. It was 2 and I haven't heard from her. After a text, she said she could be there in about 20 minutes because a previous lesson ran over or reschedule. I opted to keep the lesson since I arranged my schedule to fit a lesson. She was supposed to be at my home at 2:20 and it was 2:50 before she showed up. Prior to her arrival, I did send a text that we needed to discuss our schedule. Upon her arrival, she told me that most parents give her a 15 min grace period. This is not listed in her description or was it discussed prior to lessons. I explained the value of professionalism and punctuality. If she is late, it sets my schedule off. I offered a resolution: that we can set the new time to 1:45 since that's the time she arrives anyway. She STILL wanted this "grace period." I offered to cancel my lessons, but she said she would be here Friday at our new scheduled time. Later that night, I sent a text explaining that our talk should move us in a positive direction. She informed me that she took my daughter off her roster shortly after she left my home. Let's be reminded, this was AFTER she said she would be here Friday. That is unprofessional. She is obviously unable to accept being told what is expected for a PAID service. I hope she learns the value of customer service, professionalism, and consideration of others.
