"Experienced Piano teacher of 7 years available for eager students of all experience levels and ages! I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of classical and popular piano skills. I specialize in rock, spiritual, patriotic and standard music and typically use the Alfred series books for all ages. I teach music theory, ear training, dynamics, technic as well as sight reading. I also have the following tools available to use during lessons: piano, sheet music, keyboard charts and more. Let a caring teacher bring the love of music into your life. Let your talent shine.

My utmost goal is twofold: for each student to feel confident in themselves, and to have fun! I create a positive environment where my students can challenge their strengths and find patience through their struggles. I plan and personalize every lesson every week to match where you’re at. Together we'll build a strong foundation of theory, aural training, and technique so you can play anything.

About Frejya

Freyja is one of the most supportive teachers I have ever had. I learned more with her than with any other teacher because of her clear directions, compassionate support, and amazing skill. I credit her for helping me develop my life long love of music. Her lessons where a comfortable place to hone my skills and express myself creatively.

We focus on playing and writing music immediately, the theory is second, music playing and having fun is first!

I'm 31 years old and I have been playing music of all kinds since I was 15. I practiced 3 years before I actually played with anyone and once I did I learned so much more. I don't want you to make the same mistake, try out my 30 minute discount rate and we can make sure you are having fun and playing music in no time, if you want to expand into harder lessons then we can worry about that later.

My prices guarantee commitment for my students to practice what I teach. I started teaching more regularly and came across a lot of adults who wanted to learn, they would not practice during the week like most of my children do. Raising my price convinced these people to practice in order to truly get their money’s worth out of the lessons.

About Joshua

Guitar is the most amazing instrument to me. I got really lucky because someone gave me an electric when i was 12 and I just played it. I didn't even know they had to be tuned at first! Once I started playing with people I learned so much so fast. I also went to school for recording and am able

I have a M.M in vocal performance from the Chicago College of Performing Arts and have extensive operatic training. I teach an open throat technique (appoggio) that allows the singer to sing with freedom, and access their entire range evenly. I also work with students to develop style, interpretation, languages, and acting ability.

He did a great job explaining how the vocal cords work and helping me adjust bad habits hindering my voice.
Wichie A.
Due to lack of technique, It has tended to hurt after I sing. But after even just 1 lesson with Ben, I IMMEDIATELY felt a difference. Not only did I not feel any pain, I also felt like my throat and jaw was more open and relaxed than I've ever felt.

I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this instructor.

I'm an experienced and dedicated musician, having played with Orchestras and Chamber groups throughout my state. My lessons are focused on relaxation, and am as laid back or strict as the student needs. Whether you're a beginner or advanced, shooting to be a church player or a pro, I have taught students for that and am the teacher for you.

"more than i imagined

i'm a singer/songwriter who lives in a different state than eric so i signed up for online voice lessons. i was apprehensive about taking lessons online but after reading eric's great reviews i figured i'd give it a shot. man am i glad i did. i'm just starting out with eric and already he has helped me so much. i've been looking to have power and proper placement with my voice and not only does he understand what i want, he's getting me there quickly. i should say i'm probably a tough case because i've been singing with bad habits and blocks for many years. much to eric's credit, he is always patient, encouraging and knows just what to say and have me sing to pull me out of it. i'm singing notes i never knew i could sing, it's truly awesome.
just a word about the online experience. i'm definitely not tech savvy but online lessons were an easy experience for me. we've skyped, we've done face time. i can hear eric and the piano perfectly (no delay, etc. that's the part i was most concerned about). it all worked out great!
i'm not sure where else this journey might take me. i know eric writes, teaches piano, guitar, etc. i could see working with him in any of those areas and benefitting greatly from it. for now, i'll focus on one thing and encourage anyone who's thinking about taking lessons with eric to go for it. i really believe he has a gift for teaching and can truly help any willing student grow.
best of luck!"

Edwin I. is a great teacher. He focuses on what you want to learn as opposed to drilling music theory and scales. While these are very important, primarily focusing on them could make it easy to lose interest in playing the instrument."

How to Tell if Your Old Piano is Worth Restoring

Are you curious about how to restore a piano that's been sitting in your basement or storage unit unused? Was an old piano passed down to you, and you're not quite sure how to make it playable? Here, Katy, TX music teacher Zachary A. shares his advice...   A piano is not only a part of the art of music, it is also a work of art itself.
