I am a teacher that helps you reach whatever goals you set for yourself. You tell me what you want to accomplish and I will work together with you to make it happen. I will create a curriculum according your personal needs and skill level.

If you are taking lessons with me you will learn lots of music theory and music history. I want you to understand the style and reasoning behind each piece of music you play.

Lee is a great instructor - engaging and fun to work with. I have noticed significant improvements in my playing over the last few weeks, and my family is appreciative too, to the point that I no longer need to hide in a remote corner of the house to practice :-)
Highly recommended.

Emily is a wonderful teacher: in spite of her young age, very professional, punctual, knowledgeable. Great personality, easy to get along with. But the most important, she cares about her student. Absolutely happy to have Emily teaching my 15 years old daughter.
