About Hector Cresp
I am reaching out to you to invite you to visit my profile. I help musicians of all ages, including everyone from complete beginners to professional working musicians. I studied music at Hochstein School of Music, Brockport State University, Nazareth University, and Roberts Wesleyan College. I have taught both private and public schools, and I have also owned and operated several successful music schools throughout my life long journey with music. These days, I teach private lessons 100% online via web conferencing, as most students and myself included, find it to be the most convenient and effective way to learn and quickly perfect their skills.
I offer a 100% free trial lesson and no credit card charge. If you choose me on Thumbtack, I will reply with a link where you can book directly with me in any available open date and time, and I will gladly give you a free lesson so you can decide if you would like to take lessons with me on a regular basis or not. No pressure. After your lesson, you can enjoy reviewing and practicing with your lesson daily through the recording of the lesson.
I teach all genres and styles of playing up to the professional level for the following instruments:

In previous years, he has taught music at public and private schools. He has given many seminars, workshops, recitals, contributions to songwriters as a studio musician, composed many songs, and has traveled extensively giving concerts throughout his career. Presently, he is a full-time private music teacher.
His music covers many genres, including solo and chamber music, orchestral music, music-theater, as well as electro-acoustic music. His fascination with jazz music, African-American music and the cultures of Latin America and the Caribbean have been a strong influence on his music as well as the great composers of the Classical and Romantic Era of music.
His recording titles include: It’s All In Black and White played and broadcasted in Rochester, New York at Radio Station 3WG, and Héctor Crespo's instrumental recording, New Venture. One of his current undertakings is his work in music film composition, “What About Us”, a dramatic motion picture based on a true story.
Learning music should be engaging. Students are motivated to learn through instruction that they can grasp, thus students and I work hard to find styles and forms of music that interest them. I find that when students enjoy learning, practicing comes naturally and the music becomes a fulfilling experience for both the teacher and the student.
I have an eclectic approach to teaching from years of experience and have taught both children and adults. I have taught music in special education programs, groups, and private lessons. I teach beginner, intermediate and advanced levels of music: jazz, rock, and classical. I love teaching music theory and songwriting. I have been teaching piano, guitar, violin, percussion, and other instruments for many years.
Below is what some of Hector's students and music educators have said about his music instruction.

Mr. Crespo is an amazing piano instructor. He has so much musical knowledge and patience to be able to instruct my child. We've used Mr. Crespo for several years now he's been so flexible and accommodating to our schedule.

I own a music company that Hector sub-contracts for, he is one of our most valued and well loved instructors. Hector's passion for music is infectious and it certainly propels his students in their learning. A huge plus is that Hector is a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist with a lot of experience performing, writing music and teaching ALL ages. Needless to say we love Hector both as a person and an instructor and would highly recommend him!

Hector has been teaching my children piano for 2 years and he has been great! He is very calm and patient and enjoys teaching so much. He has helped us tune our piano and even came to our house for an extra lesson to help out my daughter before a recital.

I had the good fortune of taking bongo lessons from Hector for about a year. After just a few months, I played at one of his recitals and then performed 2 other times with him and another student. I had to quit because we moved to CO, but I now play bongos at my church on a regular basis! If you or your child is interested in learning an instrument or taking voice lessons, I would encourage you to use Hector as your teacher. Hector knows how to play and teach many different instruments. Everything from drums and guitar to piano and voice. He is an incredible musician and songwriter who is passionate about music and truly enjoys teaching his students how to play whatever instrument they are interested in learning.
Hector Crespo is a great music teacher. He plays and teaches several musical instruments. I was taking piano lessons from him and I think he is one of the best in this field. He always helps during every little thing in the song with kindness and patience. He also spends a good amount of time on giving basics of piano theory that in my opinion is very important especially for those who wants to become a professional musician or just a very good one. I would definitely recommend Hector Crespo as a piano teacher for any student who appreciate in teaches knowledge, kindness, patience and encouragement.
I collaborate with my students to learn and understand the goals they want to accomplish and then prescribe accordingly to their request.
I've been studying for many years as a student and continue to improve my skills as a teacher. I have studied in various music schools and colleges throughout my career.
