Q&As

We love it when students experience those "Ah-ha" moments and they start to understand a concept! It's especially fun with learning how to play by ear. The system that musicians use to learn songs is a game changer and teachers don't usually teach it. So when our students learn it for the first time, we get to see how excited they are to learn it and use it. It's really awesome!

I have been a professional piano player my entire life landing my first gig at the age of 12. Many times at his gigs, people would approach me and ask me if I taught piano. Eventually, I decided to start saying yes and STL Piano Lessons was born. Once I began teaching in 2009, I noticed a pattern. Whenever I would introduce the playing by ear techniques, students got really excited. Their eyes lit up and they saw true possibility of them playing the songs they love! I realized that most teachers do not teach these techniques. Learning to play songs by ear is what made music fun for me. I took piano lessons when I was a kid, but it wasn’t until I started learning Bon Jovi songs off the radio that music really came alive for me. I didn’t know how chords worked, so I would sit there and pick out the notes of each chord one at a time using my cassette player with my fingers always on play and rewind. I want to give my students the leg up that I never had. I want to give them the techniques and the knowledge that will help them learn the songs they love so much faster. Once that world is opened up, the sky is the limit for what they can do with music!

We also make sure that we customize each lesson to what the student wants to learn. If you want to focus on the classical repertoire, then we will do that. If you want to learn to play songs off the radio, we will do that. For students of all ages, you will learn the fundamentals while also learning the things you love to play!



Don't take it from us. Here' what some of our students have to say:



"I was really nervous to start taking piano, especially as an adult, but Chris is so nice and a really great teacher! He is super cool and really knows his stuff. Would definitely recommend him to anyone looking or interested in taking lessons!"

- Marissa D.



"Chris has been awesome to work with. He is great at tailoring the lessons to my specific musical interests, and has made piano lessons both challenging and fun. He's a great encourager and instructor!"

- Russ M.



We love helping students reach their playing and performance goals! Whether they want to play Mozart or they want to figure out a song from a movie, it's a blast to help them discover how to play a tune they know and love. It is also so much fun to experience the moment certain things "click" and students start to understand a new concept. Can't wait to experience those same moments with you!
