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 a fantastic piano teacher and I consider myself extremely fortunate to have found him on Thumbtack. I did a trial lesson with a few teachers online, and Taylor was clearly the right choice. I am an adult, professional woman who studied classical piano through high school and into college. I always wanted to be able to sit down and play anything. Taylor knows how to teach to what you're looking to do. My lessons are all online, and it always amazes me that he cannot see my keyboard - he is going completely by his ear, and he doesn't miss a note! He is very organized and focused. Each week I have technical exercises to strengthen my fingers, theory, and a song or two to work on. It's exactly what I was looking for. Taylor appreciates that I'm doing this for fun, yet holds me accountable so that I can get the results I'm looking for. Last but certainly not least, Taylor is a really lovely person. His passion and devotion to both music and his family are infectious (infectious in a good way!). Spending that hour online each week with Taylor gets me outside my little bubble, and I think if we all did that more, this would be a much better world!

Been learning from him for over 7 months now. He is fantastic as a teacher. He will ask your goals and suggest a learning style. I'm an absolute beginner so I appreciate that. He uses the lesson time well and gives decent homework. I take in person classes at his place and he has a good piano for me to learn on. Still continuing to learn from him.

Being an adult learner with no prior music experience whatsoever, I was hesitant to sign up for lessons. I'm so happy found Taylor and did! I love working with him and learning the piano has been fun. I enjoy how he approaches teaches - a good mix of what and why. He's patient yet does a great job challenging me enough to make it interesting but not discouraging. He offers great tips - his little golden nuggets have helped my practice immensely.

Taylor is an amazing piano teacher. He makes things that are difficult easy to understand and overcome. Every lesson is productive and his attitude is always upbeat. I am so happy I found him on thumbtack and am excited to learn so much more than I already have. I would recommend Taylor to anyone looking to learn the piano.

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.
