Overview

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students that take in-home lessons should have piano at home.

*** Specialties ***
I play and teach primarily classical music. I do mix in other types of music for variety, such as holiday music in the Fall semester, and movie music and show tunes in the Spring and summer. Most of my students are in the Faber method, but I am also familiar and teach from the Alfred, Hal Leonard, and Bastien methods.

All my piano students do theory exercises. Most of them take the state theory tests. I use Just the Facts and Theory Time for theory, and I also use other supplementary materials for additional practice.

Violin · In studio
My instructor Branda was very nice, understanding, and a courteous person.

She thought me the basics of the Violin, gave me tips on reading notes.

I really appreciate and recommend her to anyone who wants to take violin lessons.
