I have been teaching the wonderful instrument off the piano for two years.
For children, I use the Beanstalk's Basics for Piano lesson books that includes lessons and homework in a fun and engaging way to promote retention.
For beginners, I use the publication A New Approach to Keyboard Harmony to learn chord progressions, sequences, modulations, realization of both figured and un-figured basses, basic improvisation, and score reading. Learning these techniques will help transition students seamlessly to various styles and genres that incorporate the piano, helping you learn and love the piano without frustrating stoppages that often lead us away from lesson continuity.
From there, I utilize the Hal Leonard Student Piano Library series to promote chord inversion, syncopation, arpeggiation, pedaling, and key centering.
Music is the means to create a portal into our souls, so that we may see each other for who and what we are, not merely as what we do. I want to help foster those young, middle-aged, and not-as-young how to tap into their own soul portals through music so that they may find others' as well. I believe that in order to entertain others with your voice or your instrument playing, one must first be able to entertain oneself - all the while having fun doing it!

I have been teaching piano for over 30 years and was the former head of the Cerritos College Children's Piano Program. I specialize in classical piano and include note reading, sight reading, music theory, and also popular music. I have two grand pianos at my studio and musical teaching aids as well as age and level appropriate books on hand which I supply to the students. My own university training was thorough and my students are able to make rapid progress. I try to adjust the repertoire according to the students interests as much as possible to make the lessons enjoyable.
Experience: 30 years teaching private piano lessons, former head of Cerritos College Children's Piano Program. Trained with Christine Bardin, composer of Alfred's "Music for Little Mozarts". Philosophy I have had the advantage of having the best teachers and try to also give that opportunity to my students. When a new student first comes to me, I ask what is their goal and formulate a strategy to rapidly lead them to achieve that goal. Whether it is precise classical training or a general music experience that includes reading music and playing popular pieces, I give everyone a thorough education in theory, sight reading, and exercises to promote fast and even piano playing. I teach students as young as 4 years old with the "Music for Little Mozarts" approach which I taught at ...

I am a professional, caring, and knowledgeable teacher. I believe that every student is an individual and I approach each lesson with that individual in mind. I have experience with all ages and am educated in many different teaching methods and styles. I am a confident believer that any person can succeed in music and enjoy music at some level. Education I began taking piano lessons when I was six years old and I was hooked. I took lessons for 9 years and then resumed again when I was in college. In fourth grade I picked up the flute and the saxophone because I wanted to play in the school Jazz Band. I then took Alto Saxophone and Flute lessons for 8 years all the way through high school. It wasn't until high school that I caught the singing bug when I joined the women’s choir

For students who want to pursue a career as a musician or interested to explore the beauty of music, I can be very helpful to your journey.
I am delighted as a music teacher and performer, with excitement and joy when my students really enjoy music. A musician is just like a 'Messenger of Love, Beauty, and Truth', bringing to people what is lovely, truthful and pure. Learning a musical instrument can open our eyes to see beauty of life, to embrace our sense of being and further, to prove that quality and purpose of life results from more than just physical satisfaction. For years we find that most studios, limited to resources and the pressure of exams - a competition-oriented approach, provide merely technical training on skills, but not a holistic encountering of music. We will try to bring about a different approach: Without diminishing the skill training, we will enhance the music appreciation training by guiding
