Hi, there! My name is Eric Rinehart and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons since 2015 and started teaching the Simply Music method in 2017.

I have loved helping my students experience the joy of music, improve their performance skills, and learn to play their favorite songs early on in their lessons.

I went to UCSB and earned a degree in Chemistry/Biochemistry in 2015. I'm a passionate, nurturing, and warm teacher excited to bring the FUN and joy of music making!! I look forward to helping you reach your goals!

Ignite the joy of music.
Build performance skills.
Develop discipline and persistence.


-Foundation Level Simply Music Teacher Trainee

-2 years of teaching experience.
-2 time record-holding World Champion Euphonium player with the Concord Blue Devils.
-Born and raised in the Napa Valley to 5th generation piano family.

***My Mission***
I walk the path of mastery with the piano.

I share my passion for music with my students.

I aim to inspire my students to love music for the rest of their lives.

I aspire to exude relaxation in every key stroke.

Maybe... just maybe I can provide stir in someone powerful enough to inspire.

I began lessons with mom at the age of 8 and was hooked by music. After my fifteen years of playing and study of music, I continue to learn and evolve as a pianist and educator.

When I am not playing the piano my other hobbies include going to learning about marketing and business, staying healthy, and watching something that will make me laugh.

It is my dream to grow my strong communal piano academy of highly motivated students that pursue excellence in music.
