Start making magic on the piano with the help of an experienced teacher of 30 years
We begin with exercises to develop technique and train for agility, musicality and music theory. Classical music is used but not exclusively as we explore the many different genres of music! Ear training is also offered so that the student may be able to play by ear as well as reading music.
About Tim T.

My wife and I have been teaching piano lessons in the Kansas City area for more than 20 years. We have studios in our home; she teaches upstairs and I teach downstairs! I am currently accepting new students and welcome the opportunity to see them grow and experience the joy of piano playing. While some of my piano students are involved in church music, I also teach students in the entire Kansas City area and we cover every genre: classical, country, pop, rock and Broadway styles. I encourage each pianist to discover his or her own passion for playing! I have more than 33 years of experience teaching private piano students and look forward to many, many more. Let me help you learn to play the piano with excellence and have a lot of fun in the process! *** Lesson Details *** Students can expect to have a teaching environment that is professional and conducive to learning. My lessons include instruction in theory, technique and exposure to a variety of musical styles. Beginners will learn to play songs within 3 months time and gradually expand their repertoires to include more difficult piano pieces! Beginning students are taught fundamental skills that apply to all piano players such as scales and arpeggios. Hanon exercises are used and chromatic scales are learned as well. I use Alfred teaching materials but not exclusively. I encourage students to find their own favorites to play and lessons are tailored to meet the goals of the student. If your desire is to become a classical pianist, we concentrate on works of the masters. If you are wanting to improvise with a jazz band, we work toward ear training with the jazz greats! If you would like to play in a church worship service, we will focus our attention on service playing and playing worship songs by ear, too. *** Studio Equipment *** Den: upright, couch and recliner, parents can sit in on lesson *** Specialties *** Classical and church music

Tim is a wonderful instructor. He genuinely loves music, and it comes through during lessons. He has a positive teaching style. He strives to meet my kids where there at and teaches to their interests, but also manages to get technique and theory in. Tim is a treasure!

I served as the worship pastor for the church for 20 years. My duties included directing the Frontline Choir and Orchestra and overseeing all of the youth music, children's music and technical teams. I led worship from the keyboard and enjoyed learning new worship songs while still including the great hymns of the faith.
