10+ years experience in piano education, performance, and songwriting!
Hello! My name is Kyle and I have 10+ years combined experience in music education, performance, and songwriting! My passion lies in two things: music and teaching. I remember how amazed I was as a child discovering music and the potential that it held and I want to pass that sense of wonder on to my students. I enjoy approaching each lesson with a mindset that fits the students thought process to help them understand music in their own way. I have 2 years experience in public education as a choir director, piano director, and general music teacher for elementary and middle school students. I also have 8 years of teaching private lessons 1-on-1 and in a group setting. I am a piano accompanist for Frisco ISD and have previously performed in concerts for Ector County ISD and Odessa High School. I’ve composed music for live podcasts, online video games, potential upcoming TV shows, and local music groups. I’ve been involved with several music projects, including lead songwriter for jazz/pop group Abbey & The Afternoon and guitarist for The Doc Gibbs Band. Through these opportunities, I’ve gained knowledge in many genres including pop, rock, country, jazz, and classical. I look forward to help you in any way I can along your musical journey!

Kyle is absolutely top-notch. He does a fantastic job of relating to the kiddos. He makes them feel successful and encourages them in a positive manner, and they also progress very quickly. I highly recommend him and am so happy to have found him.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Herridge for some time now, she started as a beginner and loves it so very much. His patience has really helped her to feel comfortable trying something new. His easy going spirit has made every aspect of learning fun. Also Mr. Herridge has a knowledge and love of music that quite exceeds his age. He allows my child to choose songs and chatter about different types of songs which helps her to feel heard and it makes every lesson seem like she is hanging out with her friend. We are so grateful for his teaching!

We have tried private music lessons for my two kids (ages 7 and 10) several times before, but it was always difficult to keep the kids motivated / engaged to attend - let alone practice! This all changed since they started with Mr. H a year ago. They have grown so much since starting their weekly lessons - not just with their technical piano skills but also with their general understanding and appreciation of music. They happily practice every day, and they always look forward to their lessons at his house. He makes music fun, engaging, inspiring, and helps them see how important music is in our lives!
