Introduction: As a teacher with years of experience, I aim to provide a thorough understanding of piano technique, music theory, ear training, and sight reading to my students while constantly cultivating their individual passion and excitement about music. I maintain an upbeat, exuberant attitude coupled with patience and understanding I've acquired from working with children and adults of all ages, ranging from 4 to 66 years old. After receiving my Bachelor of Music at the renowned Berklee College of Music in Boston, Massachusetts, I spent a couple years back home in Portland, Oregon before traveling to Tokyo for nearly three years to teach and perform there. In addition to several years experience as a private instructor, here's a list of institutions where I've previously held a position as piano faculty: - Onset School of Music (Wakefield, MA) September 2013-September 2014 - Chelsea Community Schools (Chelsea, MA) September-December 2013 - Global Music Institute (New Delhi, India) January-April 2014 - Jacob's International Music School (Kamata, Tokyo, Japan) September 2016-March 2019 After these experiences and hundreds of private lessons, I have established my method for teaching the piano and am able to adapt to a variety of interests and styles depending on the student's personality. I'm happy to travel to the student's location, but depending on the distance and time I need to commute, I may charge an additional travel fee. Thank you for taking a moment to check out my Thumbtack profile, and I am looking forward to meeting and playing piano with you or your child!

Piano Lessons

We have had our first lesson and it was great! My son had to be pulled away from the piano each day or he will do nothing else. He is inspired!

I met Grant when he visited Willowbrook Arts Camp in Tualatin, and subsequently employed him to teach piano and provide accompaniment for musical theatre performances for three summers. He was one of the best piano teachers we have ever had! Grant's enthusiasm just bubbles over as draws kids into the magic of music. He is a sensitive listener and strong supporter of each student’s creative inspiration and efforts. He is also a tremendously talented musician who can traverse genres with ease, although his personal focus is jazz. During the time he was teaching, afternoon jazz collaborations with other camp musicians and students became a staple. We were also treated to mini concerts whenever he had a rare pause in his lesson lineup. He was a highly popular and loved teacher and fellow staff member. We thoroughly appreciated all that Grant offered to the Willowbrook music program! Rebecca

Grant is a wonderful teacher! He is easy going and very talented... as well as funny! His personality combined with true talent make him a great choice for any age.

Grant is a fantastically talented musician I have known since he was 14. I recommend him because he alone (of the multiple teachers I have had) explained the way rhythm works. I still use this info years later. And my NY City professional jazz musician son listened in to the lesson and said it was new to him and improved his playing.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    For students who would like to take lessons at their residence, I am happy to travel to you but in some cases I will need to charge an additional fee to cover travel time and expenses.
