As an adult starting piano lessons again after (eep!) 3 decades, I have to say that studying at Greater Austin Music Academy has been a very gratifying experience. My teacher David Mesquitic has just the right touch. He is able to both encourage and challenge someone like me who has “just enough” knowledge to be dangerous but not enough to have mastered certain essential concepts for pop/jazz piano. Huge props to Matt McLaughlin as well. He has created a very warm and welcoming space in which to take lessons and definitely paired me with right teacher. I am thrilled to have found the Greater Austin Music Academy.
Having a master’s degree in music, I have had access to lots of teachers throughout the years but have never experienced the quality of techniques and musicality that I see at this school. The teachers are extremely professional with each having advanced degrees in music… not your average “living room lesson at my piano teacher’s house.” Students range from beginners to accomplished pianists, and can feel music in the air upon arrival! One gets the feeling of attending a major university piano lesson as opposed to another “ho-hum piano lesson!” It doesn’t matter the level, I see every student excited to be there and eager to learn! I feel very fortunate to be a part of this exciting school and can’t recommend it highly enough!”
“Wonderful music school in north/central austin. My 8 year old son now loves playing piano and can read sheet music as well as pick things out by ear. I am so grateful for the Greater Austin Music Academy, and for Matt and Tom.”
