Overview

Since I began teaching in 2004, I've enjoyed teaching students ranging from adult piano teachers and hobbyists to pre-professional musicians and children learning for fun. My students have performed in recitals, won auditions at the National Piano Guild, and participated in the Interlochen summer festival, among many other events!

We will tailor lessons to suit your goals.

As a pianist, I've performed across the country as a soloist and a collaborator, including recitals with faculty members of the Peabody Conservatory and the National Symphony Orchestra.

I'm constantly seeking to further my education and improve my skills through ongoing private lessons in piano, organ, voice, conducting, and composition, as well as through masterclasses, workshops, courses, and texts.

Mr. Meyers has been my son's piano teacher for four years. He is so knowledgable, and is also very patient to student. My son likes his lesson so much because the lesson is fun. From what my son learned, I appreciate what he taught. He teaches student not only play/perform piano but also understand/enjoy piano or music. My son benefits from his good teaching at music thoery. On his first private percussion trail lesson past week, my son's furture percussion teacher is very satisfied with his skills on scales and sightreading.

Wade is an extremely knowledgeable teacher with an extensive musical background. He's also kind, nurturing, and seems to genuinely enjoy teaching. Great to work with, whether you are an absolute beginner or a professional looking to hone your skills. Great with kids and adults alike.

Wade is a former student of mine. Over the years, he has developed into a professional and dedicated teacher and performer. His eclectic interests, experience as a soloist/collaborator, and care for the students development enhance his teaching.

Wade has been our oldest daughter's teacher for years now, and as she progresses into repertoire, I'm thrilled at how he challenges her, and hearing her progress. He care so deeply for music and instruction, and that matters to me a great deal. He's wonderful to have as a teacher!

Our son Bryan has been taking lessons from Wade for a little over three years. Wade is an amazing piano instructor - the best we have ever met. He is very patient with our son and uses a wide variety of techniques and methods to teach him how to play piano the correct way and how to continuously improve. He takes his piano lessons very seriously, but makes it fun at the same time. Wade is a highly accomplished pianist who not only teaches the fundamentals, but knows how to challenge our son and take him to the next level. Our son started with no knowledge of piano three years ago, and is now able to confidently and competently play pieces by Bach, Beethoven, Mozart, and many others. Wade has trained our son how to prepare for and play in performances, and Bryan has now played in several recitals, which has been a tremendous confidence boost for him. I highly and unreservedly recommend Wade as a piano instructor for serious students of piano, at any level.

Wade has been so great and extremely patient with my 5 year old. He continually manages to keep her interested although it is a constant struggle to keep her focused for the whole lesson. Both of the girls thoroughly enjoy what they are learning and his method of teaching.
