Private Piano Teacher

I have been playing music since I was 3 years old and have been teaching for the last 5 years. I set up every lesson plan to match what the student would like to learn as well as making sure to meet the parents goals and expectations. I work with all ages and all levels. I also work very well with those that have special needs such as Autism. Every lesson is engaging and exciting, it is never a dull moment.

About April

I picked up music when I was very young and have never looked back. I started with the piano and then moved on to the violin, of which I competed regularly in up until high school. In high school I switched the viola and found it to me even more amazing. During high school I competed again in music

Great first lesson! Neil was very professional and accommodating. It was very obvious that he was passionate about music and eager to pass it on to others. Can’t wait for the next lesson.
Stephen K.
Enjoyed working with Neil. Very professional and I felt very comfortable with his teaching methods. Unfortunately I will not be able to continue my lessons with him in home since I am considered high risk for the virus. I will be canceling the remainder of my in-home lessons and picking them up at a later date

First lesson was great! He's very organized. Good with kids too.

great lesson!

I just finished my third lesson with Taylor. We are doing piano / digital music production hybrid course, but we are starting with learning to read sheet music as we both agree it will be a very useful skill to have down the line when I start doing my own compositions...even if my focus is digital production.

She is a fantastic teacher, explains concepts clearly, and is patient with my slow learning curve. She also very professionally handles student progress notes, and always emails copies of all relevant notes on each lesson for easy review and practice.

I'm very pleased to have started my journey into the world of music with her as my guide. Five stars.

"Miss Emma is the highlight of my daughter's week.

For almost two years, Miss Emma has taught my daughter piano. She is very kind, professional and listens to my child. Instead of simply using method books, she has incorporated beautiful pieces that my daughter really looks forward to playing every week. You can tell Miss Emma really enjoys teaching and each of her students. She is encouraging and has clear goals and expectations for my child. Today so many kids have sports, homework and and other weekly obligations - in the middle of a very hectic week, piano is a time to be quietly thoughtful. She said all of her stress goes away. She is a pretty shy kid, but playing piano - with Miss Emma's advice to play for any audience she can find - she has really come out of her shell and has played for friends, family, classmates, and customers at a local store that has a piano in the entryway. It has been heartwarming watching her become a confident performer. Miss Emma is an amazing teacher."

Learning Piano in San Antonio

by Andrew F. - San Antonio piano teacher (https://takelessons.com/profile/andrew-f31)

It is an exciting time for the music scene in San Antonio. Over the past several years, there has been a perceptible growth in the collective promotion of the arts -- music included. Throughout the year, residents and visitors of San Antonio enjoy music on stages of many sizes at events such as concerts, local shows, and open mics.

Fortunately for piano players in the San Antonio area, this instrument is arguably one of the most universal of all the instruments; therefore, you’re sure to find a place that fits your preferred style of piano, whether that’s jazz, classical, or something else. Below are places and events I believe provide wonderful opportunities to get exposed to live music

...

as you’re taking piano lessons in San Antonio!

Local Music Venues If you are a blues or a jazz piano player, Luna and Sam’s Burger Joint are great places to see soulful artists play live shows. These places offer a vibrant setting for grooving music that will make you move! The Mix is a great place for artists -- local and beyond -- to play shows for a welcoming crowd. The stage is a cleared space for bands to give their shows, with the crowd only a couple of feet away. This allows for a close-knit experience with the performing bands. Lastly, Fitzgerald’s Bar and Live Music is a perfect place for local artists to gather to play covers and originals. The above local music venues, with the exception of Sam’s Burger Joint, are for adult crowds. However, these are places where young piano players can someday begin their journey of playing live music!

College and University Performances At most of the colleges and universities in San Antonio there are music events performed by students, faculty, and guest musicians. You may find music programs including piano recitals, orchestra concerts, jazz ensemble concerts, and more. Feel free to try to connect with the musicians afterwards. You can gain insight and the experience will contribute to your motivation to keep playing! Here are links for music event calendars of three universities and a local community college:

The University of Texas at San Antonio: http://music.utsa.edu/index.php/calendar Trinity University: http://new.trinity.edu/academics/departments/music The University of the Incarnate Word: http://www.uiw.edu/music/uiwmusicevents.html San Antonio College: http://www.alamo.edu/sac/music/calendar/

San Antonio Symphony Also, classical piano players can find inspiration at concerts of the San Antonio symphony. The orchestra’s repertoire includes piano concertos and, since the early 2010s, each year there is a festival devoted to a chosen composer’s works. Festivals so far have included performances of piano works of composers such as Brahms, Beethoven, Mozart, and Tchaikovsky. Every season, there are sure to be concerts that will feed your passions as you’re taking piano lessons in San Antonio! Here is a link to the the symphony’s website: http://www.sasymphony.org/

Local Festivals Undoubtedly, one the best parts of the year in San Antonio occurs in April, when Fiesta is celebrated. Throughout the city, many places host official Fiesta events, including musical performances. At events such as A Night in Old San Antonio and the Oyster Bake, you can hear many types of music, including jazz, Tejano, classical, rock, and pop -- all of which include the piano! Another notable festival, Jazz’SAlive, occurs every fall. This festival brings together local and regional jazz artists as well as nationally recognized jazz artists for a weekend's worth of good food and fun! Another option is the Texas Folklife Festival, which occurs every summer at the Institute of Texan Cultures. This two-day event includes seven stages for dance and music performances and brings more than 40 cultures together. Be a part of local festivals throughout the year! Here is a link to help you stay informed of upcoming festivals and events in San Antonio: http://saevents.com/Events/Events.asp?CatMusic=y

Local Restaurants The Cove, Tycoon Flatts, and Olmos Pharmacy are just a few of the many restaurants in town that offer live music. This is another kind of opportunity for local musical artists to showcase their covers and original songs. The lively atmosphere of each restaurant is perfect for families and friends who are looking to enjoy good food while supporting local artists and guest artists. Once you feel that you are ready to play live, go out there and contact local restaurants to see if they are looking for people to play music!

In the meantime, check out all of the shows and events that catch your interest. There is a force in everybody that helps them maintain their motivation to continue doing an activity. For piano players, it is helpful to fuel our motivation by immersing ourselves in the world of music where the piano shines. As you continue your piano lessons in San Antonio and as you develop your skills, I encourage you to become a part of the growing music scene!
