discover your inner artist
"I have been Dr. Felix Eisenhauer's student for about two years. He is super helpful and supportive. He even helps me write my own songs! My piano skills (sight reading, music theory, etc.) have improved greatly thanks to his instruction. I look forward to continuing my studies with him."

And if we can't find what you are looking for, I'll write it myself! Adults enjoy having space to work on their goals, while children and teens learn their songs at the lesson so they don't "have to practice" at home but enjoy making music instead.
Felix Eisenhauer holds a Doctor of Musical Arts in piano collaboration from the University of California - Santa Barbara, a Master of Music and Bachelor of Music in piano from the University of Southern California, and pursued independent studies at the Musikhochschule in Freiburg, Germany.
Dr. Eisenhauer is currently Professor of Music (Piano) at Ventura College, serves as Music Minister at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, runs a private teaching studio, and is a Trustee for the Rio School District. Locally, he has also been the accompanist and a board member with Pacific Chamber Singers, the pianist at Our Lady of the Assumption, accompanied for Ventura College, Westmont College and Santa Barbara City College, and played for Opera Santa Barbara’s education outreach program.
While living in Boise, Idaho, Dr. Eisenhauer taught at the College of Western Idaho, taught private piano lessons, and played for all the major music organizations in the area, including Opera Idaho, Ballet Idaho, Boise Philharmonic, Meridian Symphony Orchestra, Music Theatre of Idaho, and the Broadway tour of Wicked.
Dr. Eisenhauer's involvement in education is equally long and storied. At USC, he taught Class Piano and Private Piano. At UCSB, he worked as a coach and accompanist. At CWI, he taught Music Appreciation. He started as a teacher’s assistant at the German-American School of Palo Alto 20 years ago and still teaches at their summer program. In addition to teaching German, he has translated for De Haske Music Publishing and Gold Circle Films.
