I have taught hundreds of piano students from beginning to advanced and all ages from children to adults. I have seen adults who have never taken lessons enjoy the piano and learn to play well in a relatively short amount of time.


I tailor the lessons to the needs of the individual student and seek to help them reach their potential using a variety of methods. Technique, repertoire, and musicianship skills such as playing by ear, sight-reading, composing, and theory are important musicianship skills I seek to develop in each student. 


Learning to play the piano can be fun and exciting at any stage in life.

You can do this! I can teach you!

There are many videos on YouTube which teach people to play piano, however, none of these videos will teach you how to play the piano, just what notes to play, beginning level theory, etc.  But if you want to play any classical music, or even anything past a level 1 book series, I recommend you take real piano lessons with a private instructor, no matter who you choose. This is a good video, but private instruction beats it all.

Have you ever wondered why piano tuning is so expensive? I offer my services at a competitive price. Piano tuning and repair is available in Alpine, American Fork, Cedar Hills, Heber, Highland, Lehi, Lindon, Mapleton, Orem, Payson, 

Pleasant Grove, Provo, Salem, and Spanish Fork.

What is the cost of tuning a piano? Piano tuning can be pricy, which is why we do it for less than the average piano tuner.

Typical prices for tuning a piano are anywhere from 120-135.
