Introduction: My experience with music spans over 30 years with teaching, performing, directing, arranging, and composing. My performances range from local musicians to Grammy winning musicians. I am one of the few musicians that have perfect pitch (Only 20% of musicians worldwide have this ability). I always enjoy helping people reach their music goals, and I am confident that I can help you reach yours! Interacting with people is the best part of my job. I have the best job in the world doing what I enjoy and sharing it with people! I currently do lessons virtually online, due to I live in an apartment complex, which does not allow live students. Also, when covid started in 2020, I switched all my students to online and I've kept that schedule ever since.

I am an adult beginner piano player interested in playing the piano and learning music theory and history. Mr. Adams has tailored my lessons to my individual desires. He is flexible about the time schedule and an engaging conversationalist.

Rod has been nothing but above surperb when teaching my daughter. I thought for sure that teaching a 5 year old piano would be pretty impossible, but his patience and way to keep her focused is uncanning. Rod has also been more than willing to work with our crazy schedule. Thank you, Rod! We look forward to her lessons every week.

FAQs

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

    I charge a flat fee instead of charging by the hour. $50 monthly for 30 minute lessons. Some students may request 60 minute lessons, then the rate would be $70 per month. There is a $25 rate added for travel cost if I conduct lessons at the student's residence.

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

    I always start my lessons with the basics of fingering, rhythm, and getting familiar with the keyboard for those learning for the first time. For the immediate and advanced, I review and evaluate sight reading, and then introduce more music theory along with advanced notation.

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

    Studied music education at University of Nebraska at Omaha. Director of Music Ministries at St. Andrews United Methodist Church (Omaha, NE), Music director / pianist for the Las Vegas Lab Band (Big band group led by trumpet player/vocalist Mike Gurciullo, who was a section player for Wayne Newton), Piano instructor at Omaha School of Music, accompanist for Omaha Symohony.
