Piano Lessons: New Orleans Style-Blues-Classical-Church-Jazz-Theory (Mid City or Home visits)
Or Start from the beginning. Either way, My students learn fast.
I'm Willie Davis. I have been teaching music for years. I've held a teaching position at the HARBOR CONSERVATORY in New York City, the Neil Walters Music School in Brooklyn, and have been seen regularly on television. I have recently returned to New Orleans after a decade of teaching and performing in New York City.
Listen to me play on my website.
There are also video links to watch live performances and a detailed bio.
Feel free to email or call anytime.
I have taught professional pianist, young kids, and adults.
Lessons are developed to accommodate what YOU the student would like to accomplish !!!
Possibilities are limitless. Hints for learning note intervals by ear. Special arpeggios that are easy but very effective and secretly, to most, engulfed in theory. Learn impressive trills for the proper keys in which you're playin', easy hints for the left hand that will amaze. Special chords that give you a unique sound.
Lessons are $30 / hour in my home studio in Mid City next to the Fairgrounds, or $40 for home visits in or near New Orleans. I love teaching and often we'll go overtime at no charge.
Once a week is encouraged but everything is at the students convenience. Many pros will have only 4 or 5 lessons. Enough for me to share my unique style with them.
Audio recording of your lesson is allowed.
Lessons are fun and relaxed.
***----SOME STUDENT COMMENTS & PRAISE:
.........."As a keyboard player who grew up playing synths, I've always been interested in the New Orleans style of piano playing. I've tried a few different teachers here in NYC, but still felt mystified by the New Orleans sound. Since studying with Willie Davis, I've made great progress in unlocking the mystery of this wonderful style. Willie is a kind, patient teacher, and has an incredible knowledge of many piano styles, and imparts this knowledge in a fun, useful manner.".................Joe McGinty
...........Willie, I feel so good when I practice around you. You make me feel confident. Love ya !....Kathy Jenkins-Ewa
