Overview

I have had a fairly diverse musical background, including playing with bands and orchestras, as well as participating in choral groups and opera. I have a master's degree in music performance for wind conducting, and a bachelor's degree in music with an emphasis on piano performance. I have taught private lessons off and on for several years now but have always been successful wherever I went.

I love music, which should be obvious because if I didn't I wouldn't be writing this now! I also have a real passion for sharing my knowledge and experience with others, both failures and successes. I believe everyone has creative potential, and I believe music is a real universal art form that anyone can tap into if they want. Making and creating music should also be fun!

*** Lesson Details ***
I try to keep my lessons professional but comfortable too. I don't like yelling at students for messing up or anything like that. I always have an agenda but am willing to adjust and compromise if the situation dictates to. If you don't have a curriculum in mind, I will do my best to find one that fits you as a student best. My initial goals are to make sure the basics of reading music and performing are set so that no matter what musical avenue you eventually want to pursue, you can be successful at it. I do specialize in classical music but enjoy creating and playing other genres as well.

I now also offer lessons online, as well as tutoring in most math areas!

*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a piano keyboard at my home.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would expect students to have their own instruments as needed, as well as music paper, pencils, etc. I may be able to provide some of those materials on occasion as well as some books/recordings, but will by and large expect students to purchase those for themselves.

*** Specialties ***
I am much more familiar with classical styles and Broadway. My music writing style tends to be somewhere between neo-classical and avant-garde.

Very kind and patient

Kevin has been a great first-time music teacher for Mia. He has a very gentle manner and is very kind and patient with her. I would definitely recommend him a a piano teacher for others.
