I prioritize understanding over mechanical repetition. I do not force homework or busywork but rather I try to inspire the student to enjoying playing and learning. I normally teach half playing and half study during lessons but that’s flexible obviously. I love teaching and I believe in my students.

About R. Jonathon

I studied piano performance at Texas A&M university in Corpus Christi for 7years while also working on an English degree. My piano degree recital is on YouTube and the link is available upon request. In teaching, I have experience teaching fundamentals as well as more elaborate music instruction.

I was raised in the Suzuki method, trained in it, and I believe in it. It is the most effective school of education for new musicians who want to learn reliably. I've been teaching it 9 years.

I can talk to you for days about the method, but I will sum it up as quickly as i can.

1: Immersion
2: Daily Practice
3: Listening
4: Strong relationship between student, teacher and parent.

If the student listens everyday, practices everyday, practices what i tell them, and is made to love the music, you will learn. I've taught hundreds of students this way and when all the conditions are met, all my students have had success.

Piano lessons are structured with a focus on what the student needs. We ensure a strong with a foundation of scales, note reading, and ear training, to give the student the versatility to go in any musical direction they like, and make them a well rounded musician. The books I usually begin in for piano will either be Suzuki book 1 for piano or "Adventures ...

A+mazing! I've been to several Take Lesson Instructors and as an advanced student, I had the best experience with Fawn. Fawn is an expert in her craft. Results are fast and effective. She is organized, to the point, and efficient. She knows her stuff! Also, very nice and uplifting. Thank you, Fawn! :)

We can not express how grateful we are to have Fawn for our daughters coach! She is sounding fantastic on both piano and voice! Thanks Fawn!

Here is the BEST Vocal coach ever. Allie has improved so much working with Fawn and her confidence is soaring. She tried out for a small part on a theatrical play and got one of the lead roles. Thank you Fawn, we are eternally grateful!

I teach the basic piano repertoire however I also like to keep it interesting for the students. I teach scales, patterns, ect...but I also ask what their favorite songs are. I think its important to learn what you love as well as the required pieces. I also try games with kids and make it fun that way as well. I teach classical and popular songs only no jazz on piano.

I strongly recommend Kit for piano lessons. She has tons of experience with children and is a mother herself now. Furthermore, her expertise of piano music suits her for teaching. With a little practice at home, Kit will strengthen you from a beginner piano level to intermediate piano level and further."

"Quite honestly, there aren’t enough complimentary words I can use to describe our experience thus far with Enoch. My daughter was very nervous about taking piano lessons. However, Enoch has made the lessons not only productive, but fun! He is extremely patient, and never makes her feel self conscious. The biggest testament to Enoch’s teaching is the fact that my daughter smiles the entire lesson, laughs and talks about the lesson for the forty minute drive home, and is motivated to practice, which frankly, surprised me. We couldn’t ask for a better instructor, and I would highly recommend him to anyone interested in taking up the piano."

How to Improve Your Left Hand When Playing Piano

“Why won’t this hand work?” is something every piano teacher has heard students  say in exasperation. The left hand is often a source of deep frustration for pianists for two main reasons:  1.) Roughly 90% of the world is right-handed. Are you one of them? 2.) Piano music tends to be right hand oriented. Unless you are naturally a “southpaw,” you will, as a matter of fact, struggle more  with your left hand. However, there is hope!  First, it bears exploring some caveats t …
