*** Lesson Details ***
I offer instruction of classical/jazz piano skills and music theory.
I help student’s school performance and/or music analysis project as well, and open to music which student brings. (theme song from TV program or movie, pops, etc.)
I only travel (means I visit student's home for lessons, don't offer lessons at my home) and I expect student to have a acoustic piano or better quality electric keyboard at home.
