Hi, I'm David Christie. I've been privately teaching piano lessons for over 40 years and I love teaching my students! I'm a compassionate teacher and tailor your lessons to your needs. My goals include teaching you to read music comfortably so you will be likely to continue playing piano as an adult, and teaching you how to practice effectively and strategically. I look forward to meeting you and helping you reach your goals!
Classical Piano, Jazz Piano, Music Theory, Harmony, Improvisation, and Composition. I am available in both Bellevue (98005) and Bothell - Mill Creek (98012). I teach beginning and intermediate Classical Piano to all ages, from young children to older adults 5-70 years old. I teach beginning to advanced Jazz Piano, Improvisation, Music Theory, Harmony and Composition. I have a BA in Classical Piano & Composition, and a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Piano Performance.
I have never met a piano teacher so passionate about what he teaches you. Mr Christie is definitely one of the best teachers around, he tailors his courses to the student needs and he always encourages you to move forward. He does know how to transmit his knowledge to your level and I find that very important in the learning process. It's not only how much you know, but also how you can transmit your knowledge to your students. He is a great performer and an excellent teacher. I am very fortunate to have him as my piano teacher.
