I welcome piano students of all ages and levels of experience. I don't have a set curriculum or required method book, as I feel that it's important to tailor lessons to the individual student. I work with my students to learn how to read music and feel it's important to include theory and ear training to have a more complete understanding of how and why we do what we do as we're playing. I specialize in classical music, but am happy to work on music from other genres such as rock, pop, and Broadway, or others. I feel this allows my students to be fully engaged at their lessons when the music we're working on is something that interests them.
I teach piano for a variety of interests and levels. I have worked with people interested in learning classical, jazz, and popular music. Lessons include a technique focus and theory work along with songs that are of interest of to the student. We can work on playing for fun, for performance, improving technique and skill, and/or all the aforementioned.
I have a degree in piano performance and perform locally nationally and internationally. Please see my bio for a full description. I specialize in teaching older students who are new to piano or looking to get back into it
My youngest piano student is 3 and is doing incredibly well! My oldest student was 78 and had always wanted to learn to play. I can help you with your piano goals from beginner to advanced, from the basics of reading music and playing a song for your family to performance auditions and everything in between.
I use a number of methods, however, I am open to help you learn through a method of your choice if you have one you enjoy. I will guarantee to having you play a familiar song within one month!
