I have been teaching this subject for over 16 years. There is no specific curriculum as each student will come to lessons with their own unique skills, needs, and goals. Lessons are tailored to those specifics. It is not necessary to know how to read music at the first lesson. However, learning to read is required for subsequent lessons. Many young composers have great ideas but can only hear them in their heads or play them on an instrument. Lessons will allow you to obtain the skills to write them down with greater speed, accuracy, and clarity. More advance students will also include exploring a wider range of harmonic languages, advanced notation, instrumentation, orchestration, and aural skills. Students should come to the first lesson with examples of their work, either notated or recorded in a digital format. They should be prepared to discuss their background & goals and the plan of their course of study. Lessons are a minimum of 60 minutes once per week.

Private Songwriting Teacher

Hi there. I'm Andrew. I have been teaching for about 10 years now and it has become one of the things I truly love to do. When I am not writing, reading, gigging, touring, or recording, I love to teach people the things that have made my life so colorful.

With a little push in the right direction, you can become an active participant in the things you love. No more watching from the sidelines. Become the musician, writer, speaker, reader that you have always wanted to be. It's never too late! Trying something new or asking for help can be intimidating, but I am happy to show you that the rewards far exceed the costs. Trust me, I speak from experience. I've taught personalized lessons for nearly 10 years now without a single complaint. At this point in my musical career, the majority of my experience and attitude has come from being "in the field". I've played everything from small dive bars to music festivals with crowds of thousands and been on tour and lived the whole life more ...

About Andrew

Music is my life. As cheesy as that phrase goes, for me, it holds true. Everything I do and have been doing has been geared towards music. I've been in one working/gigging band or other without break for the past 10 years. I began intensely learning to play guitar at the age of 9 and have not stop

Every student is different and no two students should be taught the same. During our first meeting we'll discuss your goals, interests and past experiences with music. Based on that conversation we'll create a custom curriculum built around your interests and what you want to learn.

In my five years as a private and group piano instructor, I have taught all ages and skill levels. From a five-year-old to a retired microbiology professor, from beginners who have never touched a piano to students competing at the State and National levels. I feel confident teaching any age and skill level.

Most of my professional experience is in jazz piano and pop/rock music, but am confident in teaching classical music and more contemporary pieces as well as lecturing about music theory and composition.

About Brock

Hey there, I'm Brock! Here's a little more about me: I'm an active composer and professional jazz pianist in the Lawrence/Kansas City area and have been a private piano instructor for over six years. Recently I finished my graduate program at the University of Kansas and have a Master's Degree in

Sara
My 10 year old son has taken piano lessons with Brock for three years. When my son started lessons, he could not read notes. Brock has been an excellent teacher and my son has learned so much. He now knows how to play numerous intermediate level songs. Brock does a great job with helping my son maintain his interest in playing and practicing the piano. He makes sure to find songs that my son loves to play including some of the popular music on the radio today. I would recommend Brock as a piano teacher for any child or adult.
Laura
Brock has always been professional, punctual, and respectful during his home visits to give our 12 and 10 year old piano lessons over the last couple of years. During that time he has taught our kids and they have performed classical repertoire, jazz tunes, improvised on stage and pop songs. We recommend him highly to anyone interested in the piano.

"Hannah's awesome! I contacted her mainly for songwriting feedback but also for guidance while applying and auditioning for BYU's commercial music program. She always went above and beyond in assisting me from songwriting, to voice lessons, to guidance with production and recording and navigating the local music scene. Hannah knows what she is talking about in both vocal and music techniques, as well as the business side of music. And even more important, she truly loves what she does and has a natural ability for teaching in a way that will help you grow immensely! If you are even slightly on the fence about taking lessons from her, don't be--you won't be disappointed!"

"I’ve been writing songs with Bob on and off since 1989, I think it was. He’s the best: inventive – lyrically and melodically; with a deep understanding of musical structure and a wealth of experience. Our songs have aired on several cable shows and songs of mine he produced and played on were used on NBC, ABC, FOX, public television, as well as on German TV, Sirius, and radio stations around the world. You’ll get what you paid for: Bob’s the real deal.

“First-rate compositions,” wrote Ken Tucker ("Entertainment Weekly" and radio’s "Fresh Air") of Williams’ songs. Both "Publishers Weekly" and "School Library Journal" highly recommend Williams’ two CDs for children. "One out of thousands!” wrote a reviewer for Europe’s "Radio Marabu" of Williams’s pop/folk-rock CD, “...true, honest music…a priceless treasure for a lifetime.”"
