About Me

I have been playing music since I was 9 years old. I studied piano with Robin Kaplan, Mark Evans, Lee Shaw, and Dr. Gary Bush. In 2004 I completed a Bachelors of Arts degree in Music Composition and Production from the Purchase Conservatory at Purchase College in West Chester, NY. Recently I completed a very successful tour as pianist for the United States Marine Corps Band, based in Cherry Point, NC. My performance experience includes jazz, R&B, reggae, classical, rock, funk, country, and DCI style marching band. I am very inspired by the vast world of music and I encourage my students to explore many genres of music in their studies.

*** Lesson Details ***
I approach music instruction with a very open mind. I am a pretty laid back teacher, despite my Marine Corps training. I find that students who enjoy what they are learning are much more likely to practice and succeed. From the first lesson I reinforce strong technique, practice habits and ear training within the context of students' interests. I also work to expand students' musical world with many take home listenings. In the first 3-6 months students can expect to learn to read and write basic notes and rhythms, the origins of the instrument and the music written for it, and most importantly, students will learn to play some songs and build their repertoir. That, of course, is just the beginning of what is, hopefully, a life long fascination with music.

*** Studio Equipment ***
In my studio I have comfortable seating for parents, and upright piano, drumset, electric drumset, digital pianos, and computer with recording and playback capabilities.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I can provide portable keyboards, laptop computer, and recording equipment. I expect piano students to have their own piano or keyboard and my drum students to have, at least a snare drum and/or practice pad.

*** Lesson Details ***
I instruct children as well as adults ranging from beginning to advanced levels in the art of playing the piano. I teach various styles of music including standard classical repertoire and popular pieces. Through a creative, fun and individualized approach to teaching, my students also learn ear training, sight reading, music theory, piano technique and music history as it pertains to the pieces they are currently learning. After one month, beginning students can expect to have learned how to play one piece of music of their choosing and one piece of music chosen by me. After a few months of studying with me, they can expect to have gained basic music reading skills.

About Me

I had my first piano lesson when I was five years old. I performed my first piano solos for audiences at school events. I joined the keyboard team at church when I was thirteen years old. I quickly learned to improvise and accompany. It was exciting to discover that I could study piano in college. I earned my way by accompanying voice and instrument choirs, rehearsals, lessons, and recitals. I enjoy helping other people excel, so I chose a teaching degree over a performance degree.

In 1991, I graduated with my bachelor of music degree in piano pedagogy. I immediately began teaching private and group piano lessons, building my studio over fifteen years to reach nearly 600 students ages five to seventy-five. I accompanied community choirs, local vocal artists, and students performing on other instruments. I performed as a substitute for church choir directors and accompanists. I was employed as a music director and organist for seven years.

I achieved my Music K-12 professional teacher certification with the State of Florida in 2007. I teach elementary classroom music for the District School Board of Pasco County. I continue to perform as a professional accompanist and serve on the piano faculty at the Patel Conservatory at the Straz Center for the Performing Arts in Tampa.

*** Lesson Details ***
I teach beginning students to read music. I teach students to play piano successfully. Reading music is a step-by-step process. I like to begin at the beginning. Using an age-appropriate All-in-One course from Alfred Publishing, we begin with the basic layout of the piano and learn to navigate the 88 keys. If you absorb and apply the information quickly, we move along quickly. If you need a little more time to sort it out, we take all the time you need.

My piano lessons are structured around the student's interests and abilities. Whether you are looking for a fun hobby or a place to launch your musical career, our time together will guide you to your goals. I am aware of physical and cognitive developmental stages and am able to present material in a suitable format for any student, adult or child.

*Special note to parents of children with unique needs: Piano lessons are a fantastic way to provide your child with focused one-on-one time while learning new skills. Playing the piano incorporates hand-eye-brain coordination, reinforces reading skills, provides opportunities for personal achievement, and teaches self-discipline through accountability. With my experience and training in Exceptional Student Education, I am able to personalize piano lessons for students with physical and cognitive challenges.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living room w/ f/w keyboard and seating for parents

*** Travel Equipment ***
My students need to have at least a 50+key keyboard/piano in their home.

*** Specialties ***

About Me

Going to University of South Florida with a full scholarship, minoring in math and majoring in Business Accounting.
My lessons consist of an individual approach to each student, since I know that everybody learns differently I come up with a teaching plan that fits each students individuality.

I began tutoring when I was a freshman in high school. I went through the international baccalaureate program in high school that included honor and AP classes. I have the knowledge and ability to tutor; biology, mathematics (algebra, geometry, pre-algebra, algebra II, pre-calculus, calculus, business calculus) , English, Russian, piano, computer knowledge, and history.

*** Lesson Details ***
My lesson starts with me finding out what the student knows and what he needs help with. I ask a few questions to help me direct the lesson so the student can gain the most knowledge.
Every two weeks I give my students a quiz that I grade. I review the quiz afterwards with the student and focus on the topics that he missed.
Every month I give my students a test that shows there progress in that month. The quiz consists of multiple choice, true/false, fill in the blank, and short answer questions.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I have my own transportation.
