*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with Daren take on a life and pace as necessary and are specific to each student. All students learn at different paces and I cater to each student's needs and learning ability. I have taught students as early as first grade thru 80 years old. I am easy going, fun natured but expect my students to maintain a minimum practice regimen. Typically I use a combination of Suzuki Method Materials (if applicable), technique books, music theory and note reading, and scales.

Subjects Taught

Classical Piano, Violin

About Me

I began piano lessons early in elementary school and continued for approximately 12 years. I have had training in technique, musical theory and classical playing, all of which I incorporate into my teaching. I also began playing the violin in 5th grade and took private violin lessons for 6 years, 5 of which were with Dr. Robert Gillespie (professor of music at Ohio State University and co-author of Essential Elements for Strings). When I began teaching the piano and violin, I had a number of lessons specifically regarding teaching methods and practices.

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Professor Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich'™s Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers'™ Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU'™s Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.
