Title: Beginner/Advanced Piano/Music No Contracts

Category: Lessons
Sub Category: Music

Area Offered: North Austin & Surrounding Area


Teaching/performing classical/jazz piano for 25 years, college music 10. "Jazz" here means any popular style. All theory, too.

Many of my students perform in Austin. Adults usually fast-track to their goals, typically jazz or pop w/a little notation.

Some adults come for their kids. Beginners train w/methods w/numbered fingerings. Then easy Bach/Baroque, correct played slowly.

Intermediate students can read chord charts for pop music. Improvisers learn modes, beyond major/minor. Jazzers learn ii-V-I theory.

Interested jazzers continue to diminished harmony w/max substitutions and angular melodies. Some go on to quartal chord theory- "McCoy Tyner style."

Technical study emphasizes posture, choosing alignment over speed. A little yoga can help. Slow scale work quickens your progress.

Students who want a classical track can start with Bartok Mikrokosmos or Kunz 200 Canons. Most beginners use Thompson's Modern Course.

Most do keyboard and theory. Beginner offerings include drums, blues harp, bass gtr, gtr, and vox. Local singers love my vocal workouts.

Fulfill your passion for rock, jazz, Americana, boogie-woogie, hymn playing, etc. Classical too.

Adult lessons need not be weekly. Study what you want. Keyboards/synths OK.

Low rates. Advanced degree. No contracts saves $$ big time!
