Introduction: I have been teaching private piano/music theory lessons for over a decade-and-a-half. I've taught hundreds of students, of all ages, backgrounds and skill levels. I offer instruction in skills such as performance, technique, music reading, articulation, music theory, composition, and improvisation. I teach both the classical and jazz methods, and I work with students in whichever genre(s) they're interested in, including classical, pop, rock, jazz, blues, Latin, funk, etc. I offer in-person lessons at my home studio in Round Rock, as well as lessons over Skype.

Taylor is an excellent teacher. It's clear that he's not only incredibly passionate about music but also about teaching. He teaches at all levels and offers flexible scheduling. I'd gladly recommend him to anyone wanting to start or advance on the piano.

Taylor is a very diligent and patient piano teacher. He has over 20 years of professional experience, enabling him to communicate music theory in an approachable way. Taylor also has a wealth of techniques and exercises at his disposal that he uses to ensure his students achieve a firm grasp of the subject matter. Aside from his professional qualifications he is also a great guy, and its a pleasure to learn from him!

I've been taking lessons with Taylor for about a year now. He has exceeded my expectations as a teacher and where I could go with piano in such a short amount of time! Taylor is encouraging, kind, passionate and extremely knowledgeable about the piano. He's laid back but also ready to check you when needed (aka not practicing like I tend to do sometimes lol). If you're putting the work in and outside of the classroom, you'll be on the fast track to learning and making progress with Taylor as your instructor!

Taylor is such a great teacher! He does a really good job of teaching the 'basics' while at the same time allowing you to choose the learning path you want to go down. I feel like I've learned an incredible amount, not just about piano technique, but about music theory and even song composition. Such a brilliant and enthusiastic guy - I would recommend 100%!

FAQs

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

    I charge $30 for a half-hour lesson, $40 for 45 minutes, or $50 for an hour.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    At our first lesson, I sit down with the client and ask them what they're musical goals are (what skills do they want to obtain, what music genres they wish to master, etc). We then map out a plan for how I will help them reach those goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I obtained a bachelor's degree in Music from Brigham Young University. I have played the piano since 1996, as a soloist, accompanist, and with different groups, including Brigham Young University's Jazz Ensemble. I have performed and entertained in many different venues and locations across the United States.
