Terry Smith is a degreed teacher with over twenty years of experience in teaching piano online.  He owns and operates Applegate Music Lessons (since 2007), a private teaching studio, where he has provided quality musical education for students, ages 8 through adult. Terry has also taught general music and music theory online for grade levels K-8, serves as music director of music in local churches in the Phoenix, AZ area, and accompanies two community choral groups.

Terry strives to make all lessons productive, and non-threatening.  He also offers flexibility for those with busy schedules offering weekly or bi-weekly lessons, plus the ability for students to record their assignments and get helpful feedback between live lessons. 

Learn to:

  • confidently play music in any situation
  • understand chord structure and how music works
  • play music of multiple styles and genres
  • accompany a singer (or yourself) or play in a band
  • play with and without printed music 

Terry uses the Piano Marvel learning tool, which offers the most efficient way to learn piano ever invented. Students can learn 4-8 times faster than with other methods. This easy-to-use technology is available for any computer or iPad. Students are motivated to spend more time practicing through instant feedback and by implementing video game intensity when playing. ​For a small monthly subscription, you can take advantage of over 20,000 songs and exercises in 18 levels of difficulty.
