If you want to learn how to begin playing the piano, I am you man. I focus on scales, selections, and cadences to help you learn the beginnings of piano playing. I can take you through simple four part melodies with pedals, playing from a lead sheet, and even a bit of transposition. A small amount of music theory will be involved in your lessons. Contact me to talk about your piano playing goals and to set up your first lesson.
About William P.

Hello everyone. My journey into teaching has opened up so many doors for me and has made me a better instructor. I have been participating in music programs from the age of 3. Music is my passion. I have learned many instruments along the way, and I have pressed through to achieve not only my academic aspirations, but my personal goals as well. I tailor my lessons to my students, pin pointing what we need to work on, and reinforcing what is already going well. I can come to you in person, or via internet. My goal is to help you reach your goals musically, and to encourage you in your journey to becoming a musician. Contact me with any questions you may have about any of the subjects I teach, to learn more about me so you feel comfortable with me as your teacher, and to set up your first lesson.

Excellent teacher, with an ability to focus pointedly on your strengths and where you might need help. He then offers specific drills to perfect your singing. Gentle but realistic style of assessment. I highly recommend William P.

I taught the teen band how to play as a group. I also taught a little music theory to help them grow as musicians. By assigning homework I was able to help them understand worship in the Bible a little better and why we worship in the church today. By having one on one sessions, I was able to help each person grow individually as well.
