    I teach beginning piano, voice, songwriting and composition. Whether you're young or old, music is something everyone enjoys, and why not learn how to sing, play, write or compose? I find joy in all of these things as well as teaching people to make their own music.   I have taught off and on for 15 years, am a soloist, songwriter and composer, play for churches and have had a number of original songs performed and/or recorded.  My passion is igniting the passion inside my students and watching them find their niche.

    I have been teaching piano, keyboard, theory, harmony, and improvisation for over 20 years. I'm also a professional singer and usually like to include basic voice training in the lessons, as it's very helpful to any musician. Plus I'm an active performing / recording artist and can help you 'dress' your songs with harmonic and melodic choices, if that's your passion. My background is very diverse: classical music, pop and jazz big bands, and, of course, music from Brazil, my native country. After I left Rio de Janeiro I lived briefly in Houston and then in Seattle for many years, where I perf

Gfire's Piano Lessons

Gfire Mayo · Austin, TX


What or who inspired you to start teaching?

To be honest, I am a singer/songwriter and I wanted a day job that would still be in my field of music.

What do you love most about your job?

I love seeing and hearing students make progress and learn to sing, play piano, play guitar, and write songs.

What types of students have you worked with?

My youngest piano student is 3, and the oldest I have worked with so far is 87. I teach all levels - beginning, intermediate, and advanced - on singing, piano, and songwriting, and I teach folk guitar as well. Some of my students are professionals who tour, some are aspiring professionals, some are in choirs or do open mics or act in amateur or semi-pro productions, and a lot of students just want to have fun and learn to sing and play and write for their own enjoyment.

Tell us about your passion for teaching

I enjoy being the "cool" singing and piano teacher - I know what is necessary for good playing and singing and writing, since I have loads of real-world experience, and I only teach the techniques that are the best and most productive.

What advice would you give aspiring students?

Make a list of your goals. Be willing to practice a minimum of 3 times in between lessons. Be patient and don't expect instant results but rather a long term progress. It generally takes a minimum of 2 years of study to achieve mastery on any instrument (including the voice) or in songwriting.
