Introduction: I teach piano, but with an emphasis on improvisation, arrangement, and songwriting, using theory as the foundation. This teaching method gives the student a solid understanding of musical theory, while at the same time allowing them to learn in a very creative environment. I offer a free introductory lesson where I will explain and demonstrate the method that I teach. I enjoy helping my students obtain an understanding of how songs are arranged and composed, and then see them start to create songs of their own. When a student gets excited about an original composition or an original arrangement they have created, and then realizes that they can replicate those results with an infinite number of creative possibilities (different musical genres and different subject matter), I can't help but get excited also.

Piano Lessons

Treyan is a fantastic teacher. He goes above and beyond for his students. I started taking lessons again after a many years long hiatus. I came in as an intermediate-level piano player. and Treyan has helped me step up my game with theory, improvisation and composing. Treyan has a unique approach that was exactly what I was looking for. I had had enough of classical training and wanted to understand more about putting theory into practice. And that is Treyan’s speciality. Anyone around me has noticed the improvement as a result of Treyan’s teaching. He has helped piano playing become fun again!

Piano Lessons

Taking lessons under Treyan, I have seen my piano skills and theoretical understanding improve already more from being with him for now 4 months versus my years and years of piano lessons growing up. He is knowledgable in all genres, and does a really good job of helping me understand not only the how, but the why behind chords resolve, are altered, or chord progressions follow a specific pattern. Worth every penny without a doubt.

Piano Lessons

Treyan was such a pleasure meeting and having as a teacher. He’s sweet corky and so talented at teaching music in a way that you can truly understand it rather than classical methods of learning piano. I highly recommend him!

Piano Lessons

I had a great experience with Treyan. I’ve played the piano for a long time, but I never learned much theory or improvisation. I explained what I was looking to learn, and Treyan immediately started coming up with plan that fit my experience and end goals. He really knows his stuff and is extremely student focused. Highly recommended!
