If you are interested in taking piano lessons please do not hesitate to contact me. I have experience teaching beggining and advance students of any age.
I have a Teaching Diploma and a Concert Diploma from the Conservatoire Neuchâtelois in Switzerland, a Postgraduate Diploma and a Master from the Royal Northern College of Music in England, and a Doctoral degree in Music Performance from UT Austin.
My teaching experience includes an interim faculty position at the Universidad Nacional de Costa Rica and a Graduate Teaching Assistantship at UT Austin. I am currently a freelance pianist, I teach at the Austin Chamber Music Center and I have a private studio.

My 10-year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Carlos Quesada during the last 6 months. She had taken piano lessons a few years ago with another teacher but she didn't remember much. We are happy with Mr. Quesada, he is very professional and patient, and I have definitely seen improvement in my daughter's skills. I recommend him to anyone looking for a good piano teacher in SW Austin.
Carlos is a passionate and enthusiastic piano teacher. His teaching style combines friendly and serious coaching in order to help his students reaching a higher level of performance and expanding their musical knowledge. He provides a rich experience for his students including strong classical piano foundation and other styles as well. We are glad that our children are able to resume piano lessons with him recently. We highly recommend Carlos to anyone who is interested in taking piano lessons.
Carlos is not only a phenomenal concert pianist, and a very gifted musician, but also a great teacher. My children (6 and 9) love taking piano lessons with him. He's patient and very friendly with them but also expects them to work hard and play the piano to the best of their abilities. Carlos always provides very detailed explanations of what he expects the children to achieve in their weekly practice, and always manages to keep the children motivated. We have seen great progress in our children's playing abilities (and musicianship) since they started taking lessons with Carlos. I definitely recommend Carlos to every parent who wants to give the gift of music to their children. We have tried different schools and teachers, but have been the happiest with Carlos' approach and dedication.
