About

I'm Thani! (Pronounced like "Danny" but with a 'th-' sound instead of a 'd-'). My teaching approach focuses on student autonomy, allowing you to take charge of your own growth. Whether you're interested in jazz improvisation on the piano, electric guitar shredding, or songwriting, I'll guide you on your journey to becoming the musician you dream of being.

With over 17 years of experience in performing, writing, and teaching various styles, I'm known as the "Swiss Army" among my friends due to my versatility. I specialize in genres such as classical, jazz, pop, hip-hop, rock, avant-garde, soul/R&B, and more. I welcome students of all ages and skill levels and offer in-person lessons at my studio or your home, as well as online lessons.

As an organized and effective communicator with a strong background in performance and teaching, I prioritize excellence, collaboration, and adaptability. I completed my studies in vocal performance and composition at UNT. My passion lies in equipping, inspiring, and enriching the world through the transformative power of music.

    I want to start by saying thanks to Thani for what he does with my son!! He is extremely patient, creative and adapts to learning needs of my son. My son waits entire week for his piano lessons and stickers which Thani gives him as appreciation.. I highly highly recommend him if you are looking for a polite, knowledgeable, flexible, and extremely talented music teacher!!

    Teaching kids is never easy. Thani has been so patient and kind when teaching my kiddos. He is very observant and caters to each child’s strengths and builds on that. Both my boys have progressed significantly working with Thani. They had no experience playing any instruments and to now know how to read notes, create their own music and genuinely love music, has been so awesome to witness. We are so thrilled that we have the opportunity to work with Thani and are really excited to see the continued progress my kids are and will be making.

    Thani helped me to make more intentional musical decisions by asking good, thought-provoking questions. He helped me to develop my own musical instincts and tastes, and he did a great job of showing me all the possible directions I could take with a musical work. He might share his opinion on any given subject, but doesnt ever shoot down my ideas. He instead takes my thoughts and helps me flesh them out into meaningful music.
    Hes extremely knowledgeable and experienced in the realms of music theory and composition; I highly recommend him to musicians of all skill levels. Hes very patient and constructive.
