I am very passionate about music and spend many hours everyday playing the piano and teaching. My love for music began at a very young age. I remember playing with the glockenspiel and toy organ as a young child. I started playing the piano by ear and then later studied formally in college and received my degree. I studied piano at Concordia College and The Westchester Conservatory of Music. I teach all styles of piano, Classical, Pop, Rock, Broadway, or Jazz. I am patient, friendly and know how to make learning music fun. I offer piano and keyboard lessons to ages 5 and up, beginners to advanced.

I have been studying music for eight years now. Having come to music rather later in life than most, I find that I am more empathetic to the perspective of the beginning student than many teachers. I spent the Summer of 2009 teaching music fundamentals to groups of severely physically and mentally disabled children of all ages. Since then I've completed my Bachelors degree in Music, and have taught privately to several students.
To me, music is above all about transformation; yes, beautiful sound transforms our experience of the environment, but learning an instrument transforms the very way a student learns. Learning to play an instrument is an experience of training one’s nervous system to gradually act and respond in new ways, and that kind of persistent, ...
I think it's easier to learn the piano if you are having fun, and that means playing music that you like.
You can always choose what you will play in lessons, and lessons are designed around your preferences, and move at a pace comfortable to you.
I'm not a disciplinarian in any way. I have had the complete classical conservatory experience, yet that doesn't mean I expect that of you in any way, especially kids.
For children, the best start involves games and immediate playing to give the child a taste of the real joy of making music. Reading exercises have their place, but not at the very beginning.

Having taught for so long I rely on my own experience as a musician, using my extensive knowledge of music theory and the guitar as an instrument to impart a heightened awareness and love of performance and the rewards of a disciplined and focused practice habit to my students. Whether a student wants to learn rock, blues, jazz, pop, folk or other genres, I give them key insights and the right approach to achieve his/her goal in the minimum amount of time. Practice is essential to growth.
Over the past few years, I've studied with Modern Guitar Greats such as Jonathon Kreisberg and Mark Dziuba.
Currently, I'm gigging around the Hudson Valley with several Jazz and Rock Groups. You can catch me playing every Sunday from 2-6 at the Cafeteria Coffee House in New Paltz.
Skype Lessons are OK

Lessons will involve building song repertoire, and exploring how to connect ideas aurally, visually, and mentally.
Teaching, like jamming, should be a conversation. I look forward to learning as much from you as you do from me!
