I have been teaching piano for over twenty years, with many of my students participating in international competitions and regularly receiving state honors from the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC). Teaching is truly more than a career for me - it is a passion that guides my interaction with all of my students, no matter their age and skillset. If in addition to pursuing piano as a hobby, you would like to participate in the MTAC Certificate of Merit examinations and earn credit for your studies, you are more than welcome to do so. As a member of the MTAC, my students boast a 100% pass rate (with the vast majority receiving perfect scores on both the performance and music theory sections). If you have any questions, feel free to reach out. Can't wait to meet you! :-) *Please Note* Online-only piano classes are only available to students who have prior experience. I do not recommend complete beginners to start fully online, as there are beginners' nuances that are much better addressed in-person!

The piano is often referred to as the instrument every musician should start off learning. The way it is laid out makes it very easy to see how music works and how everything fits together. Wether you're just starting out or picking it back up after a while, I can help you reach your goals! In lessons, we'll be sure to cover all the basics of harmony, technique, and rhythm to ensure a solid foundation to build upon. I tend to teach these concepts through the use of various etude/method books and exercises to ensure a well rounded approach to learning in order to become a more well rounded musician.

If you are ready to start taking your music skills SERIOUSLY then stop wasting time and money on teachers who don't fully understand the instrument or subject matter themselves. My name is Russ and I have been playing guitar professionally for 20 years and teaching music and producing records for over 15. I have a Platinum #1 Billboard charting record under my belt, worked with artists such as Mac Miller, Sean Kingston, Red Velvet, Lifehouse and more; and have composed music to 100s of your favorite TV shows! Feel free to browse my official website for a full list of credits. Want to learn to shred guitar? Produce beats? Write your own songs? Dive into theory? Record yourself? This page is the one stop shop. Feel free to reach out with any requests or questions!

I’ve once heard that a Piano is a musicians work desk and I couldn’t agree more. Piano is a beautiful instrument and not only is it great use for composition, but an even better accompaniment while singing. If you’re interested in either, I would enjoy helping you on you’re journey!
