Isaac Seybold, Music Major at University of North Texas
Isaac Seybold began his piano studies as a self-taught player as a teenager in his hometown of Lawrence, Kansas. He began his official piano studies at the University of Kansas Community School before transferring to The Music Clubhouse, a private studio where he studied under director Janet Hart. He was offered a job as a student-intern teacher after progressing rapidly as a pianist and spent 2 years both working as a teacher as well as studying and giving recitals as a student of the studio. In his years at The Music Clubhouse, Isaac took part in the creation of the nationally recognized piano curriculum for young students called Piano Detectives Club, working as an assistant teacher for 4 semesters of the group-based classes himself. He was recorded teaching group classes and private lessons from the curriculum to create instructional and demonstrative content for licensed Piano Detectives teachers all around the country.
A string player first, Isaac has been performing as a violist for nearly a decade and is currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in viola performance at the University of North Texas while continuing his piano and greater musical studies.
