Practice Habits TeacherWelcome to the PracticeHabits.co community!

My name is Chris Owenby, your helpful music 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 15 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…

But I’ve found that students really respond to music and resources that inspire them.

So that’s what I do. I create helpful resources in the form of original piano music, exercises, practice guides, and much more.

PracticeHabits.co is a resource for you. A trusted and reliable resource that you can depend on for all of the above.

What are you struggling with in your private lessons? What kinds of practice resources would aid you in your lesson preparation? Are their particular styles of music that would spark creativity and passion in your students?

I want to hear about it. I’m here to serve you.

I look forward to getting to know you and learning all about the important work you’re doing.

Have a fantastic day!

Your friend,
