Introduction: "Irwin is the best piano teacher in Texas." That is one of dozens of reviews Irwin has received on Google, Thumbtack, Facebook, Yelp, at his website, etc. You can find his website by searching Piano Lessons by Irwin. Each year, he wins the award for the Best Piano Instructor in San Antonio. He teach all ages and styles. The first lesson is a free 30 minute trial lesson with no obligation to continue. He teaches every day except Sunday. There is no tuition fee or contract. The lessons are private and individual. Lessons are given in his home studio one mile from the intersection of Babcock and Huebner in Northwest San Antonio, Zip Code 78240, 3 miles North of the University Hospital. Please send Irwin all the days and times that you can come for a free lesson. Please send him your e-mail address and phone numbers, so he can send you more information. Please include your name as well as the name and age of the student. Thank you. Here are some testimonials from my previous clients: 1. The best piano teacher! -- 5 stars " Irwin is the BEST piano teacher in San Antonio. He makes the learning easy and affordable for everybody." -- Gabrielle Abeghe 2. An amazing teacher! -- 5 stars "Irwin is an amazing teacher! I have taken piano lessons for almost 2 years by another instructor and decided to leave secondary to not progressing. In the eighth months that I have been taking lessons from Irwin, I have far surpassed where I was with my last instructor. Not only do I look forward to practicing. I also "know" how to practice. Irwin is competent, highly talented, and knows how to relate to his students, making them feel more at home. I can't say enough good things about him. No wonder why he continues to receive the San Antonio instructor of the year award!" -- Chris Collins 3. A well-known and respected teacher! -- 5 stars "My grandchildren have been taking music lessons from Mr. Irwin for almost 8 years. We were very fortunate to find him, and we hope to continue for years to come. He is patient and encouraging and has instilled a strong love and appreciation of music. He combines his music talent with humor making his lessons fun for them. He is well known and respected in the music community. He's great!" -- Betty Boubel. 4. An excellent piano teacher! -- 5 stars "Mr. Witebsky is an excellent piano teacher whom I would recommend to others. I personally am a music teacher, and I know what to look for in private teachers. You can't beat his rates. He works well with young people." -- Chris E 5. A wonderful instructor! -- 5 stars "Irwin is such a wonderful instructor. He has been teaching my son for some time, and it has been amazing. My son picked up very quickly. He is a patient, kind and a loving teacher. He has such passion for the piano and it shows. Thank you, Irwin, for being the best!" -- Michelle M. 6. A great piano teacher! -- 5 stars "Irwin Witebsky is a great piano teacher! He goes above and beyond, and he is very friendly.

Piano Lessons

My teen son is extremely shy and introvert. He wanted to learn to play the piano. In our very first lesson with Irwin he got him to sing and just go along. Irwin love for teaching shows, he is fun to be around and connected with my kid quickly. Needless to say my son is more than happy to keep learning with him. Thank you for opening a new door to my son

My daughter only began her piano lessons 7 months ago (a total beginner besides trying to play on her own), and she is playing very well with all of her fingers, and some of my friends who play the piano are saying that she is playing more complicated things than anyone with that amount of training they've ever seen. She started her lessons with Irwin in-person because she needed help with finger placement, but after 2 months of visiting Irwin every week, she graduated to the "phone-call lesson", and Irwin knows every song in all the books he teaches from, so he can hear if she is ever playing any of the songs wrong. He's excellent! The phone call lessons are the easiest way to take piano lessons that we've ever imagined! He's encouraged her, and helped her in writing down the songs she comes up with as well. Writing & playing beautiful and complicated music is still somewhat of a dream of hers, but it's beginning to come true, thanks to Irwin. :)

Piano Lessons

Thank Irwin for the lessons. I started thinking whether I can learn Piano at this age. And, I'll confidently say, yes. I've taken lessons from Irwin for a few months now and myself & my friend have completed the first course and we've come a long way from not knowing anything about Piano to playing the songs from the course with confidence. Thanks for Irwin's teaching for even people like us with no knowledge and making it easier for us. I'd recommend him.

Piano Lessons

I have taken piano lessons on & off throughout my life & learning from Mr. Irwin has improved my sight reading drastically compared to any other teacher I’ve learned from! If anyone tells me they want to learn piano, I always recommend him!

Piano Lessons (for adults)

I picked piano out of a hat and decided to begin learning it. Now, for starters, I'm not a woman with a lot of self-confidence when it comes to beginning at the bottom. I found Irwin on Thumbtack and seeing his experience, I thought I'd give him a try. Irwin is incredibly genuine in his teaching and truly cares about his students and music. Because he is patient, kind, and encouraging, my love for piano grows immensely with each lesson. I highly recommend him for all levels, all ages, and all learning styles.

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

    I charge a dollar a minute. That is, if you want a 30 minute lesson, the fee is $30. If you want a 45 minute lesson, the fee is $45. If you want a 60 minute lesson, the fee is $60. If you want a 15 minute lesson, the fee is $15 If you want a 20 minute lesson, the fee is $20. etc. In other words, a dollar a minute.

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

    The address you see on my website is my mailing address. I do not publish the correct address and directions to my home studio until we set an appointment for a free trial lesson. You do not have the correct address at this time. My home studio is 1 mile from my mailing address. Please send me your email address and phone numbers along with all the days and times you can come for a free lesson. Blessings.
