I'm David Eide-Altman and I offer piano and organ instruction to a wide variety of students of all ages and levels of ability. I am available for instruction at your home on your piano in Central Maryland - Howard Country, Southern Carroll Country and Northern Montgomery Country. Reduced rates are offered for lessons at Atholton Adventist Academy. I also offer reduced rates for lessons at my home in Sykesville, Maryland (Howard country). I offer organ lessons, but I believe it is best if the students has a minimum of two years of piano instruction and be in the 7th grade or higher before starting organ lessons.

Weekly Lessons

Lessons are once a week for 30 minutes for most beginners, children or adults; also 45 or 60 minute lessons are available for anyone, and are required for the more advanced student. During the year students will have the opportunity to play in two recitals and receive weekly practice guidelines.


There will be two recitals, one in the fall and one in the spring as well as a Hymn Festival in March. All students are expected to attend and perform at these events. This is an important aspect of learning to be a musician! Music doesn't exist unless someone performs. Students are also encouraged to attend live piano recitals or concerts. The Washington/Baltimore area has, by some accounts, the largest number of musical events of any region worldwide, including free concerts. Please take the opportunity to enrich yourself and your family by attending the live arts.
