    Terry is a fantastic teacher. He has been teaching my children for years and they’ve made amazing progress with him. He is very knowledgeable and makes the lessons interesting and fun. Terry is always on the edge of leading technologies and approaches. I HIGHLY recommend Terry!

    We found Applegate Music Studio online after taking one year of lessons with a different instructor. My child wanted to quit piano altogether, but I suggested we try something different first. My child was able to play, ACTUALLY play a song after one 30 minute lesson and had not been able to do that with the former instruction we had done. My child was hooked and thrilled after that first lesson, and has been learning and growing immensely after every lesson since then. Terry is a patient and knowledgeable instructor. We are very pleased with our child's accomplishment and learning with this studio. We highly recommend this studio.

About this pro

I believe the natural learning approach is to learn piano like we learn our language - we develop playing skills first, then learn to read music notation. I strive to have all students enjoy the following benefits: * Experience playing as a natural self-expression. * Confidently play music in any situation. * Play something on the spot for friends and family. * Understand how music works and play music of any genre. * Accompany a singer or play in a band. * Improvise without printed music. Since I also offer live, online lessons and self-paced online piano courses, my local students get access to many tutorial videos and online messaging. 70% of adults wish they had learned a musical instrument. My mission is to change those numbers. Helping children and adults to play a song they like and bring music into their life is amazing. And nowadays, it's easier to achieve than ever.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Pricing is $25 per 30-minute lesson and less for online instruction. No long-term contracts.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I want to make sure they know what to expect since I typically use non-traditional approaches to learning. I also want to know what goals they have so I can customize their learning experience.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I hold a Bachelors degree in Music Education and Theater Arts and have significant study towards a Masters degree in Music Education. I also attend conferences and workshops to enhance my teaching skills.
