love teaching and keeping students interested. It's important to find titles that students can get behind and taking time to find pieces that are appropriate and interest students is my first priority.

I like to make sure that exercises are not looked at as a punishment. Breaking down how to apply a technique is as important as learning it.

Finally, I like to keep things light. I'm not going to motivate you by scaring you into practicing. There are other teachers that are good at that, but that's not my style. I'd rather work on finding out how to get you to be self motivated and actually enjoy what you're doing.

My specialties include jazz and pop styles.

Steve has been great. We had to switch to online due to social distancing, and it has worked out just fine. He even gave us the first online lesson free to see if it we wanted to continue with it. He is a natural at communicating with kids, keeps it very fun, and has been great at getting our 8 year old started with piano.

"Dan is full of positive energy and full of musical knowledge. He is teaching my daughter Piano and voice. The skills she is learning are building her personal confidence. He is bringing her out of her shell and giving her confidence to be herself within her passion of music.

She has been in choir and learning Theory for 5 years and Dan is helping her understand the theory through his great music stories, use of the piano and practical application. I am so excited we found him and would highly recommend him for anyone I know."

"Annette was our boys' piano teacher for the 4 1/2 years we lived in Germany. She worked so well with both boys, adjusting to their very different styles. Her patient, kind, encouraging style in a relaxed, non-intimidating environment gave the boys confidence and a love for piano. I was always especially impressed with Annette's follow through with a detail or question or technique that came up during a lesson that needed elaboration. She would often go the extra step and seek out a further example or answer a question in further detail after a lesson and email that information to me to share with the boys. I can't express how grateful I am for the gift of music that she has instilled in both boys. She was a wonderful teacher."
