Piano Lessons: New Orleans Style-Blues-Classical-Church-Jazz-Theory (Mid City or Home visits)

Quickly learn a few special 'licks' and 'tricks' that will immediately give your playing the WOW that impresses.

It's easy. 

Or Start from the beginning. Either way, My students learn fast.

I'm Willie Davis. I have been teaching music for years. I've held a teaching position at the HARBOR CONSERVATORY in New York City, the Neil Walters Music School in Brooklyn, and have been seen regularly on television. I have recently returned to New Orleans after a decade of teaching and performing in New York City.

Listen to me play on this website.

There are also video links to watch live performances and a detailed bio.

Feel free to email or call anytime.

I have taught professional pianist, young kids, and adults.

 Voice and students of other instruments also accepted. 

Lessons are developed to accommodate what YOU the student would like to accomplish !!!

Possibilities are limitless. Hints for learning note intervals by ear. Special arpeggios that are easy but very effective and secretly, to most, engulfed in theory. Learn impressive trills for the proper keys in which you're playin', easy hints for the left hand that will amaze. Special chords that give you a unique sound. 




I'm dedicated to each student, take extra time to customize lessons to the needs of the individual student and I provide many, free materials.  The fee is truly a bargain and a great deal for the student.


New students are required to pay for 4 lessons to start (unless you are visiting from out of town).  After those first 4 lessons the student can pay week by week (lesson by lesson).  


This encourages students to give at least the most basic effort and also ensures the great deal of time & hard work preparing for new students is not wasted because their intentions were not serious and they give up after only one or two lessons.  


Lessons are $30 / hour in my home studio in Mid City next to the Fairgrounds, or $40 for home visits in or near New Orleans.  I truly love teaching and often we'll go overtime at no charge.  Again, I'm dedicated to helping you have the gift of music in your life.  Anyone can do it if they take the proper steps.

And once again, SKYPE is coming for your lesson taking ease. 

If the amount (of 4 lessons at once) is too much at one time for anyone, a promise to pay might be accepted after discussion of the details of such an arrangement.



Once a week is encouraged but scheduling is geared toward the students convenience.  Many pros will have only 4 or 5 lessons.  Enough to share some of the knowledge I've gained over five decades, my interpretations, and various aspects of my unique playing style.

 Every lesson is digitally recorded and students have access to watch their lesson as many times as they like on their 'unlisted' YouTube channel.  If desired, audio recording of your lesson (with your own devise)  is also allowed .  

Lessons are fun and relaxed but always very productive.

Learning piano with Willie has been an incredible experience. He has a down-to-earth style of teaching that starts where you are and moves at your pace while still challenging you. As a classically trained pianist, I was able to learn the basics of jazz piano in only a few lessons. He knows the theory inside and out and makes it relevant to the kind of songs you want to play.You also get enormous value for the price he charges, considering the amount of experience he brings and the plethora of sheet music and video resources he includes. Total blast - i wish I had started working with him years earlier.

"As a keyboard player who grew up playing synths, I've always been interested in the New Orleans style of piano playing. I've tried a few different teachers here in NYC, but still felt mystified by the New Orleans sound. Since studying with Willie Davis, I've made great progress in unlocking the mystery of this wonderful style. Willie is a kind, patient teacher, and has an incredible knowledge of many piano styles, and imparts this knowledge in a fun, useful manner."
