Hello! My name is Serena!
Music shapes my life and has made me the person I am today. My experience in training in opera, musical theatre, jazz, and pop has expanded my musical skills and knowledge. Not only have I been trained in performance, but I have also studied music history, music theory, conducting, movement training, ballet, Alexander Technique, acting, yoga, stage craft, improvisation, other languages, diction and the International Phonetic Alphabet, voice science and anatomy, and vocal pedagogy. I have completed my Bachelor of Music in Operatic Vocal Performance from the prestigious Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University under the tutelage of the legendary Carol Vaness.

I offer Simply Music piano lessons in my studio. Simply Music focuses on the sheer pleasure of playing. The hands-on approach, and immediate results, dispels the notion that learning to play means enduring years of lessons, boring practice sessions and relentless hours of drills.
How is Simply Music different?
-The quantity of music learned
-The quality of music you immediately learn to play
-The speed of your progress
-The ease with which you experience the process
The Simply Music Method is based on the premise that everyone, without exception, is naturally musical. Traditional methods insist that beginners learn to read music as the means of learning to play. This removes the natural connection between student and instrument and commonly, removes all the fun, too. In fact, expecting children to read before they have learned to play is like expecting children to read and write before they have learned to talk.
In stark contrast, Simply Music temporarily delays ...
A native of West Seattle, Rian took his first piano lessons at the age of seven. His middle school music teacher recognized Rian’s musical talent and gave him his first public performance opportunity during the school’s annual musical. Rian would go on to play piano for the middle school productions for 3 more years. As Rian progressed into high school his talent increased as well. As a freshman in high school Rian successfully tried-out for the award winning JFK High School Jazz Band and soon took over as the primary pianist. While performing at a high school jazz band festival he was singularly awarded the “Best Rhythm Section” award, a prize usually given to a band’s entire rhythm section. Rian concluded his high school musical career with a trip to ...
Did you hear a nice tune on the radio or Spotify? Wouldn't it be nice if you could sit down and play it by ear, without relying on sheet music? I will teach you the techniques needed to play the songs you love by ear. I will teach you to not only hear music but to understand music, to fully understand the language of music.

I do not teach above beginning piano. Basically, I shouldn't be taking work from all those wonderfully hardworking instructors that offer as an alternative - more depth, proficiency, experience and technically proper instruction.
There are a few reasons why I offer piano lessons. First, I'm qualified in teaching the rudimentary rules and technique of the piano. Second, I incorporate the piano when teaching guitar. Third, I generally use the piano when teaching composition, songwriting and arranging. The reason for this is because the piano offers increased range, tonal depth and visual convenience when illustrating concepts to my students.
Indeed as a kid, I was simply blown away as to how music showcases almost endless stimulating possibilities. This in terms of structure, different genres, discordance, harmony, tamber, melody and rhythm. For it would be these very profound attributes noticed back then that sustain me today.
As a young aspiring musician, "universal" would be last words out of an poor observers mouth. This especially when describing my several attempts in playing speed metal on my sisters viola. It would be these sort of behaviors that summoned my father to buy his resourceful son a electric guitar and amp. The rest was history. A history plagued with disturbing reverberations along my parents bedroom walls and garage doors. This while placing a heavy burden on their pocket books in ...
