*** Lesson Details ***
Being a musician is exciting, challenging, and of course, rewarding. Musicians are communicators; instruments of expression. I'm a firm believer in diligent practice habits and learning the fundamentals of one's craft. From there, the music can happen.
I offer a relaxed, comfortable learning environment that is both fun and productive. A stuffy, tense atmosphere promotes timidness, and insecurity, the opposite of the environment I foster in my studio.
Whether you're a beginner with a passion, or a professional looking to fine tune your proficiency, I can help you get to where you want to be. Diligent, concise, uncomplicated, and fun! That's how I teach.

I am energetic, experienced and creative music teacher with a proven ability to get the very best out of pupils. I am an expert at identifying the appropriate resources required for a subject matter and then ensuring that they are used efficiently, effectively and safely, always keen on building a strong relationship with my students. Most of my students read and play simple music after 4-5 classes of active instruction.
I posses an extensive classical music and music pedagogy training. All my musical knowledge and expertise was attained in Eastern Europe. I play and teach piano, upright bass, bass guitar and a range of other instruments. Over the years I taught basic piano, the beginner violin, viola, cello and a variety of school instruments such as recorder and xylophone. I also teach advanced music theory, harmony and basics of composition and orchestral arranging required for music colleges. I especially find it rewarding working with beginners and the opportunity to show them the amazing world of listening, playing and making music.
The teaching begins with identifying student's musical needs, goals and tastes. Students are taught a stimulating, thorough, and graduated course of recital solos, theory, technical studies, and classic piano repertoire. For those wishing to pursue more of a classical approach to music, there are proven methods to accomplish that goal established by books and other materials from European master piano teacher and pedagogues

The learning process should be, for the most part, fun and based upon a strong relationship between the teacher and the student.

The voice is the unexplainable language of the spirit, expressed through sound. To uncover the artistry and texture of the singer, one must probe into the inner spirit. My approach is holistic, meditative, and spiritual. Connectedness between the mind and body is essential. I can help singers of all levels find or fine-tune their voices.
Since I'm a working singer, I have the on-the-job experience necessary to help my students excel in pursuit of their musical goals. I cater each lesson to the needs and personalities of my students, because all students learn differently.
I expect that the student provides the necessary materials like lyrics, a recording device, and a pencil and paper.
