I've been teaching piano for seven years and have seen countless students develop a love for music and the piano that has enriched their lives. I am a working jazz musician who has toured the world giving performances and presenting masterclasses. I also have a thorough background in classical piano and have extensive experience teaching both to students of all ages and skill levels.

About Sam H.

Born and raised in Dallas, Texas, Sam H.'s life in music began before his feet could reach the pedals. After being enrolled in early piano lessons, he excelled in his classical training under the guidance of his endlessly dedicated teacher Janet Jones. While attending Booker T. Washington High School for the Arts, he discovered jazz and began studying with local piano legend Bill Lohr. In 2004, he made the move to New York to study at the Manhattan School of Music, where he earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees, studying privately with Jason Moran, Garry Dial, and John Riley. He has since performed regularly in bands led by musicians such as Ambrose Akinmusire, Ben Van Gelder, Logan Richardson, and Gretchen Parlato. He has appeared at venues and festivals in the Americas, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia.

In January 2014 he released his debut album, "Interludes," on Fresh Sound New Talent.
