About John
Fun, professional, and relaxed. Experienced instructor since 1988. First paid public performance was in 1983, so I've been at this a while, and love it.

*** Lesson Details ***
Students learn from popular music beginning with basic chords and strumming and simple melodies. After 3 months with correct practice the student should be able to strum a number of songs and change chords smoothly. After 3 months bar chords and more complex melodies are introduced, and beyond 6 months, one can expect to progress into music theory and improvisation.

John is very patient and knowledgeable. You can tell that he's been teaching for a very long time. I'm self-taught and have been playing for over 20 years and within minutes of viewing me play, John was able to pick out immediately my flaws. He gives me homework every week, and gives me a hard time if I do not do it. Exactly what I look for in a teacher.

About Christina
Hi, there! My name is Christina E. and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for 15 plus years and have loved helping my students prepare for concerts, school auditions, and just learning music. I attended the Alabama School of Fine Arts high school and Queens University of Charlotte while earning a degree in Music Therapy and Psychology. I am calm as well as patient and my teaching style reflects that. I am excited this year to introduce WunderKeys for Preschoolers age 3-5. Why Wunderkeys – This method helps to encourage first experience in music lessons while helping to provide a long term enjoyment of the piano. The Method book is designed to be a one- on – one , 30 minute lesson that contains 10 lessons in each book. On average it does take a child a full school year to complete the program. Using the this
method book it helps to build confidence, and solidify musical concepts. This is all done through songs and games. Also this year I will be focusing more on individuals that have special needs. As a Music Therapist I am able to adapt music lessons so that it is more teachable for those with special needs. I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

About Hannah
Hey there! My name is Hannah, I have been teaching piano for about 7 years, and over that time had 15 students. They were all completely new to the piano (and music in general), but over time were able to read music, understand simple technique/theory, and play music both at home and in church. I love being able to take a completely new student who is willing to learn, and see him/her learn to enjoy (yes, enjoy ;) playing the piano.

My kids absolutely love Hannah as their piano teacher. She relates to each one individually and on their maturity level. They are always eager for lessons and to be with her. All three started out with no music knowledge and have learned exceptionally well how to play. I’m so pleased with how they love her and want to learn because her.

We loved having Hannah in our home to teach our children each week. She was always cheerful and the kids warmed up to her quickly. They learned so much and in a fun way! She was always prepared and on time.

About Maggie
Since earning my Bachelor's Degree in Musicology in 2009, I have been teaching private piano lessons to ages young and old. I use various method books to develop strong fundamentals; which in-turn creates a strong musical foundation on which the student can build. I believe every student has a different learning style and as a teacher, I am constantly learning from my students to develop and expand my teaching methods. Each of my students are on their own individual musical journey and I'm happy to be a part of it.

Maggie is a great teacher. My seven-year-old daughter loves her and she learns a lot from her. My daughter had a different piano teacher before. I like Maggie's upbeat way of teaching better than her old teacher. I personally believe the right attitude and energy helps motivate kids to learn. I like that she has different lesson plans and reward system. Just a little something to show my daughter that she's doing a good job.

Maggie is a great teacher! She’s worked with my 10 yo son for over a year now and he’s learned so much. My son also enjoys working with Maggie. She rewards him for practicing and makes him feel more confident when he’s learning.

We are a husband and wife piano teaching team that enjoy seeing children grow as they expand their musical skill set. We are firm believers of learning the fundamentals. We teach all ages and levels, and want our students to be having fun!

And if your piano needs a tuning, we do that too!

It is great getting a student to think and analyze the task at hand. It might seem too hard at first, but I will walk the student through the process of figuring out how to play a piece. Learning music gives you a lot of skills applicable to everyday life.

Mr. Higgins is a wonderful piano teacher! He is very receptive to my overall goals with piano and tailors each of our lessons to meet my abilities and ensure that I am learning well-rounded skills. During our lessons we review workbook music, (beginner) classical pieces, technique, and ear training. I'm really enjoying learning from Mr. Higgins, and he makes each lesson both educational and fun!

Playing the drums is my passion, and my goal is to bring that passion to my students!

As a performing musician and educator in Charlotte, I have been fortunate to study under many great drummers over the last twelve years. These include drummers who have studied under the greats, from Joe Morello to Jon Riley. I’ve also been very lucky to learn under legendary drummers like Ron Wiltrout and Quentin Baxter.

I do everything I can to teach my students as individual, unique learners. We start off in the fundamentals of stick control, rudiments, and reading, before moving toward a focus on groove, rhythm, and playing to music. At the end of the day, I try to teach my students to have confidence in their playing and have fun doing it!

I’ve been teaching students from the ages of 3 to 15 for seven years now, and try to offer a reasonable ra
te for families. I live in Charlotte, and am able to meet you in all the surrounding areas. Thanks, and I look forward to talking with you!
