Chris Owenby,

Chris Owenby - Founder & Owner - PracCticeHabits.c

My name is Chris Owenby, your helpful piano teacher professional.  

I’m a composer, music director, and piano teacher among many other things, including my greatest passion – being the best husband I can be to my lovely wife and the best father I can be to our two beautiful little girls.  

I’ve taught piano, voice, music composition, and music theory to students of all ages for over 12 years. 

I’ve always enjoyed the opportunity to share my knowledge, passion, and love for music with young people.  

Pouring into others is a wonderful thing! Wouldn’t you agree?  

But you know what? There’s one thing that sticks out as the greatest pain point among us teachers.  

Students not practicing! Maybe you can relate…  

So, I create helpful resources in the form of original piano music, exercises, practice guides, articles, and trainings for teachers just like you! is a resource for you. A trusted and reliable resource that you can depend on for all of the above.
