You are in the right place.

Chris SwanI offer piano lessons to people of ALL AGES and ALL SKILLS!  Whether you have never touched a piano before or you want to brush up on your skills, I have years of experience teaching children as young as 5 and adults as old as 75.  I customize your lessons to focus on the things YOU WANT TO LEARN. If you want to learn to play classical piano, we will focus on that. If you want to learn to play songs you hear on the radio, we will focus on that. I can teach you the system that professional musicians use to hear a song once and sit down and play it!

I also teach audio production. I have been working in studios my whole life and would love to help you learn how to create your own recordings and make them the best they can be!

Piano · In home

“Chris is awesome! He tailored my lessons to help me cover the skills that I most needed/wanted to work on while continuing to cover the basic materials he takes all his students through. He’s professional, easy-going, flexible, and is a super talented player. Highly recommended for students of any playing level, or any age!”

“Chris is very knowledgeable about piano music. Also, he is patient and understanding.”

 Bill Apr 14, 2016

“Chris is a very patient and caring person who not only continually works on his own skills and attitudes, but also encourages and rewards those qualities in others – both students and friends alike. His sense of humor, ability to motivate others, and his wide knowledge of music – everything from jazz standards to classic rock to hip hop – make him an excellent teacher for virtually any piano student.”

“Chris is simply the BEST!! patient and very thoughtful If your trying to learn the piano or simply wanting to brush up on your technique look no further because Chris is well versed in all genres of music. His trio played for my benefit last Friday to a standing room only crowd making the event both a success and memorable.”

 Rhonda Apr 13, 2016
Piano · In studio

“Chris is an amazing teacher! He has helped me understand and connect the dots quicker than any other piano teacher has. He will teach you to your preferences as to how and what you want to learn. He is patient, caring, kind, and thorough. He truly wants the student to understand the music but to have fun while doing it. He has a great sense of humor and makes the student feel comfortable. Oh and there is no use of rulers to slap fingers who make mistakes!!”

Chris loves music and his energy can be contagious.
Ultra positive and knowledgeable instructor.
