TEACHING: MASTER CLASSES & LESSONS

Jeff teaches piano and songwriting privately, both in person and via Skype throughout the world. 

He says, "I've been conducting songwriter workshops in Houston, TX for 7 years, and holding master classes at my alumni CalArts for the last 6 years. My focus is developing ones individual voice through learning the craft of songwriting. When teaching piano I help the student to develop chord structure and scales as well as the basic tools of learning how to improvise piano. I look at music as a language and the more knowledge one has the more they can express themselves. [read more]
