I teach from a student's existing musical reality. Regardless of age, people have music that they like and love, as well as dislike. Through speaking with a student, I gather musical styles, genres, composers, artists, and songs that the student enjoys and I begin teaching this music to the student immediately, regardless of musical knowledge on their instrument. In the case of a beginner student, I customize personal arrangements of musical pieces for each student to match a student's current musical skill set.
I have found that a student has as much to show me about their own musical reality than I have to show about mine. I am more of a facilitator than a traditional teacher. I help set up goals as far as song selections, and various performance possibilities: sight-reading ...

My primary gig is teaching anything with a keyboard. Having played the keyboards since I was 5, (initially the organ before moving on to the piano), I have acquired the adequate skills to transfer my knowledge to beginners. My objective for my current and prospective students is to be able to teach them to read notes so that they can eventually pick up a piece of music score and work on them on their own. Independence is key, and with adequate practice, my technique allows my students to be able to sight-read pretty much on the spot.
I'm also opened to teaching the Rubik's cube. Yes, the Rubik's cube. There is a set of steps that will guarantee anyone to be able to solve it. I'll definitely be looking forward to teach that!
For current pianists interested in expanding their skill set to the organ, I offer lessons in beginning technique and introductory organ repertoire. Please contact TakeLessons for more information on available times and locations.

I have long loved the art of the B3 organ and have played in many groups over the years playing left-hand bass. There is a true nuance that comes from manipulated the draw bars and understanding the attack, sustain, and release of this keyboard instrument.
