What can I say?! My son has been taking from Keith for 8 months now online, and I am in amazement at the progress he has made! He is playing piano like he has been taking for way more than short of a year. After working hard on theory, my son is now learning to play favorite songs. He said today that Keith is challenging him to figure out some parts by year. If you have a question or doubt about what instructor to choose, I can tell you right now. Choose Keith!!! You will not, can not be disappointed!! Thank you Keith for all you have done. Thank you also for being consistent in your lessons and always staying in touch. You are the greatest and I highly recommend you. And congratulations on your 4th grammy nomination!

Keith has been helping me fill in some gaps in my fundamentals. Prior to lessons here, I would usually learn bits and pieces in unorthodox format. However these lessons are helping me build a plan towards my goals.

My son just had his first lesson with Keith. Right away he help my son feel confident at beginning to learn piano. After the lesson I went through with my son what he learned, and he certainly learned a lot! We look forward to further lessons with Keith. He was amazed at Keith's knowledge of music and his actual ear reading ability!

Keith is a an awesome teacher! I learned so much from him in the span of a few weeks. Every lesson is packed full of information and he makes sure you totally get and understand the lesson before moving onto the next chapter. I really appreciate that he corrects me whenever I make mistakes especially when it comes to staying on beat while playing the piano with the metronome. Lessons are also never boring with him. I feel that he truly cares for the musical growth of his students. Although, I'm taking a break from Take Lessons when I enroll again I will choose Keith for Piano/Music Theory.

I am very thankful to have had the opportunity to have Keith as my piano/music theory instructor. He was very patient with me and made sure I understood the lessons and the concepts. It had been a long time since the last time I played piano and he accommodated to my needs and what I needed to learn first before we advanced to the next level of the lesson. If you're just starting out, he's a great first teacher to have!

Keith's knowledge in music production and his skill level for playing the piano is impressive to say the least. As an instructor/mentor Keith has the ability to inspire and encourage students to learn. Learning music theory on your own can be challenging and frustrating, but Keith has the ability to explain it in a way where difficult concepts may become easy to grasp. The techniques that he has taught me has also made sight reading and playing in general easier and more enjoyable. Keith often gives me constructive criticism on some of my own music production that I bring in, and shares ideas with me on how I can build on a chord progression to take my production to the next level, which I really appreciate. I would highly recommend Keith to anyone ready to learn.

Two lessons in, I can officially confirm that Keith is an AMAZING teacher (and person to boot).

My piano background was a little questionable beforehand (primarily self-taught via YouTube), but having someone as talented and encouraging as Keith tailoring a lesson plan specifically for me has already exponentially improved my technique. Your search for a teacher ends here. Five stars. :)

While working with Chrisette Michelle I created the live show. During practices and performances I directed the musicians in her ten piece band. I had to make sure all the musicians played the correct parts for each song and that the transitions between songs were smooth and seamless. I was told by her and management that I did an exceptional job. I also played keyboards in her band.
