Jan Seides Music Studio
I teach all ages, go to my students, and also teach at my own location if that is preferred. I have degrees in music and many years experience coaxing the best musicianship from each student. I teach piano, guitar, voice, mandolin, theory, composition, songwriting, and performance. I am a performing songwriter myself.
I love everything about it. Seeing students learn to make music they can enjoy, working with them to solve problems or learn new techniques, and watching the joy it brings them brings me joy too.

Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Asking them to show me what they already know (if anything) allows me to figure out what method would be best. We talk about how to sit, how to use one's hands We talk about where things are on the instrument, and get comfortable with it. Later on, we start talking about reading music. We also talking about sticking with it through the hard parts, but that we will have a lot of fun on the way.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have degrees in Music from The University of Texas, lifelong experience with making music, and practically lifelong experience teaching.
