The focus of my piano teaching is the classical style, but the fundamentals we learn as classical pianists are necessary for any type of music! Whether you're just starting out, looking to brush up on your skills, or learning more advanced repertoire, I am happy to adjust lessons to YOUR goals! We can also incorporate music theory and history to broaden your musical understanding.

I am a professional musician residing in New Orleans. I have a bachelor's and master's degree in music and have been studying and playing the piano since the age of 8! I currently teach and provide piano accompaniment with the music department at Tulane University.


Please contact me to discuss method books, repertoire, etc. I am happy to teach online, in person at Tulane University, or at your location. Don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about lessons, scheduling or anything else!

About Phillip L.

I believe that the study of music is one of the most rewarding pursuits we can undertake! Whether a total beginner, college student or adult looking to brush up on skills or learn new ones, I will help you reach your goals!

As a lecturer with the Tulane University Department of Music in New Orleans, LA I primarily teach music theory and history. As a private oboe and piano teacher, I have taught students of all ages and levels.

I received my Master's degree in Oboe Performance from the University of Akron where was a graduate assistant for oboe and music theory. I currently perform professionally, including with the Louisiana Philharmonic, Jefferson Performing Arts Society, and Rapides, Acadiana, and Lake Charles Symphonies. Having studied piano since the age of 8 through graduate school, I enjoy performing as a vocal accompanist for Tulane students as well as for local churches.

I am able to offer lessons at Tulane University and am able to travel throughout the metropolitan area. As I am frequently performing throughout the state of Louisiana, I can also arrange special lessons in other cities. Feel free to contact me about scheduling a lesson!

I am also happy to assist you in finding an instrument, supplies, sheet music and method books. Having the right setup is the best way to ensure success!

Phillip was an excellent oboe teacher for our middle school daughter. He determined what was causing problems with her instrument and was very focused on helping her with her band assignments.

Phillip has an easy-going and pleasant manner and will be a good match for a wide range of students.

I like his technique to teach piano; I only have had 5 classes with him and I already play few songs.

Did a lot of work on technique, which should really help my playing (especially pitch).
