Hello, my name is Luke and I am a classically trained pianist, trumpet player, and vocalist. I have been performing since 2012 and am receiving my bachelor's in Music Production. I am experienced in many genres within music and want to help you achieve your goals as a musician. Do you want to play your favorite songs? Interested in learning to write and record your own music? I will help you build a solid foundation of music theory and technique while tailoring to your personal tastes and goals. Depending on your goals I can add music appreciation, music theory, music production, and music composition with lessons. Shoot me a message to see if we're a good match!

About Luke T.

I am a classically trained pianist, trumpet player, and vocalist.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 10 years and am well versed in many disciplines within the music. I can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence, to learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets, or both depending on the goals and preference of the student. I also can include music theory and music appreciation, so students understand the history and evolution of music through the centuries.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built-up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

I am receiving my bachelor's in music production from Full Sail University and can help students achieve their goals as a songwriter or in music production. I can teach students how to use Logic Pro, Pro Tools, and how to create a home studio for their own use.

My personal passion is to help students follow their dreams and passions and follow their heart in music. Music is a gift that continues to give and the ability to give that joy and freedom to others is the greatest gift.

Experience

Wedding Pianist
Jan 2016 - Present

Self

I have performed for several weddings and have experience with working in high-stress environments. Many of the weddings required intensive practices with the wedding party. I also played for a wedding where the bride and I went to a recording studio weeks before to perfect the piece she walked down the aisle to. There have been several occasions where the days of the wedding the bride comes to me and completely changes the playlist, which I successfully completed and helped make her special day come true.

Funeral Service Musician
Feb 2013 - Present

Self

I have provided musical services for funerals and viewings. Playing for this type of setting requires training and empathy due to the solemn nature of the environment. Many of the songs are chosen by the musician, so careful preparation is needed to respect the environment. I began playing for funerals when I was thirteen, and am honored to have the chance to play music for families in tough times.

Fine dining Pianist

Luigis Italian Cuisine

Each Saturday I had a three-hour set where I would play technical pieces on the piano. I played many different genres of music within my set list.

Music Minister
Mar 2019 - Feb 2020

Bethel AME Church

I am the music minister for Bethel A.M.E. Church where I provide musical support during services. I play the piano or organ during services and also accompany the choir during practices on Fridays. I direct and am assisting the church in creating the third choir. This church gives me experience in more genres of music such as soul and swing.

Leading the congregation in Sunday hymns and also performing specials for services. I pick the hymns for each service to match up with the sermon and lead the congregation by cueing their entrance. I perform on the piano, guitar, trumpet, and voice.
