3. Treyan Porter
"Treyan is amazing! In the past few years, he has taught four of my children and is currently teaching two. He is a one-of-a-kind piano teacher. Before finding Treyan, my kids were just going to piano lessons where they would be assigned sheet music to learn by the next week, and then they would return the next week to pass off the songs with the teacher. Although they did learn to sight read with that method (which is important), I was the one doing all the teaching and the work at home as I helped them learn their songs - yet I was paying the teacher to "pass them off" on their songs and assign them new ones. It didn't make a lot of sense to me. When we started using Treyan as a teacher, a whole new world of music was opened up for my kids, and I was no longer paying a teacher to just pass my kids off on their songs. I am now paying a teacher that actually teaches them. Treyan isn't the traditional piano teacher. He teaches subjects like playing by ear, songwriting and learning how to play a song by just looking at some chords on a sheet. It is incredible how much my children have progressed with music since they started taking from Treyan. Before him, they were just sight reading from Alfred piano books...now they are composing their own songs. I would highly recommend Treyan to anyone who wants to do more than just sight read from an Alfred book. Treyan will help you - or your kids - develop a talent you didn't even know you had. I highly recommend him. You won't be disappointed."
