Introduction: Make piano lessons more productive, convenient, and rewarding! “Kris has a high level of empathy and is great at encouraging his students. He always makes me feel good about the progress I'm making while still challenging me to be better. I can't recommend Kris enough.” -Jason Custom-tailored classes put you in the driver’s seat: “Kris is a great teacher with a deep knowledge of music. This bodes well for anyone under his guidance, he’s patient, thorough and most of all the lessons are tailor-fitted to the student which makes learning so much easier. I would recommend Kris to anyone no matter the experience level.” -Joshua Online Music lessons are convenient and easy: “I honestly feel like I get a lot more value from his online classes than I would have with a teacher during an in-home class.” -Ting You’ll learn how to truly express yourself through the instrument: “Within a few weeks I started to improvise on my own (laughable by anyone who understands music, but I was having fun and that’s what’s important to me). I’m very much inspired by Kris and would highly recommend him” -Sally “Absolutely the best hour of the week!” -John Classes include: -Customizable lesson plans -Email recaps with personalized assignment lists and class notes -Email support between lessons -Flexible scheduling -Student song requests -PDF sheet music files -Video clip reviews (option to record your full class are available!) Topics offered include: -Piano technique -Reading sheet music -Classical, jazz, and pop music -Music theory -Songwriting and composition -Playing with others -Music recording and production Welcome to my online classroom! As a life-long student of music, I know how overwhelming the subject can be. In my classical piano roots, no one taught me how music was written. After ten years of study I became highly proficient at reading the notes on the page and moving my fingers to play them but I would hit a wall when it came to truly expressing myself. To get over that barrier I jammed with other musicians, studied music theory, practiced religiously, and listened to as much music as I could. Eventually I found myself able to play authentically and uninhibited, the way I had always wanted. I’d like to help you find that same kind of happiness from true creative expression! When you take piano lessons with me we’ll cover all sides of musicianship with a focus on building creative ability. Your classes will be varied and fun with a wide range of exercises and activities.. We'll play a wide range of pieces from classical, to jazz, rock, pop and more, breaking the music down to learn why and how it works. Together, we’ll develop your sense of rhythm, melody, and harmony so that you can sit down and truly express yourself. My classes are taught over Skype and Zoom. These classes are for beginners to advanced students, kids to adults, and feature all the benefits of in-person lessons along with the added flexibility of remote learning. Classes are 50 minutes long, $60 a session. Check out the introduction video in my photo gallery to see what the online classroom is like! When you're ready, please get in touch to set up a free consultation call, either over the phone, over Skype, or Zoom! -Kris

So happy to have found Kris. I’m an adult with no music background and I was quite intimidated by the prospect of learning the piano. Kris is not only patient, but extremely knowledgeable and passionate. He not only teaches me the techniques, but also how to appreciate music and the science behind it. He tailors the lessons to my needs and sends very detailed notes. Within a few weeks I started to improvise on my own (laughable by anyone who understands music, but I was having fun and that’s what’s important to me). I’m very much inspired by Kris and would highly recommend him.

Details: 45 - 64 years old • No, the student cannot read music • No formal training • What the teacher recommends • No, the student does not have either • 45 minutes • My home, venue, etc. • Remotely (phone or internet)
