A solid, artistic, and flexible piano technique from the beginning. One of the fundamental parts in learning to play piano is to learn the basics of piano technique, which includes proper posture of the body when sitting to play piano, proper fingers, hands, and arms position. The development of the arm and hand flexibility in order to learn the legato and staccato performance from the beginning of the piano studies. Throughout my 20 years of teaching experience I have developed different methods for children and adults to build a flexible and artistic piano technique that has worked with all my students. The proper use of the arm rotation, wrist flexibility and how the wrists and arms help to lead the direction of the phrases are fundamentals to attain a beautiful and rich tone .

Have you ever wanted to learn how to play the piano? Well, your dream is about to come true! I have a beautiful Kohler & Campbell Upright in my living room and you get to play it! When I meet a new student, my goal is first to find out your personal music preferences and goals. Then I usually start with warm-ups, exercises and scales. You get to choose from my wonderful literature of music on your path of discovery! If you want me to I'll keep records of your musical as well as your technical progress. But above all it's important to me that you have fun! So let's get started -your dreams are within reach!

In piano, we will begin with simple music designed to build strength and dexterity in your hands. We will begin learning to read music notes together, so don't worry if you never have before! However, I do recommend that young children are able to identify the alphabet and numbers 1-10 prior to starting piano. Reading is a plus! In lessons, I use the Piano Adventures series, starting at the primer level with very young students. I will typically use the Lesson, Performance, Technique & Artistry, & Theory books available at each level to give every student the most comprehensive music education while building their piano playing ability. These four books are commonly sold as a package on amazon.com for a discounted rate. In addition, I love to work with each student to meet his or her own personal goals. I am always happy to provide additional music from outside these core books! Some examples of things my students have requested over the years include Disney songs, video game music such as Minecraft & Super Smash Brothers, relgious music, and even traditional music! Thank you so much for taking the time to read a little bit about me! I cannot wait to meet you and get started!

I have never met a person who regretted taking piano lessons! Piano lessons are an excellent way to engage all parts of your brain while having fun. My lessons include: note reading, technique, music theory, ear training, and musicianship. Although I can teach a variety of genres, my specialty is in classical music.

As a classically-trained pop pianist of 21 years, I love teaching my students the language of music. Whether you want to learn basics, expand your classical technique, or learn how to play your favorite pop songs, I'm ready to take your self-expression to the next level! I can't wait to start this journey with you. In your first few lessons, you'll learn basic music theory as well as piano etiquette, and even a few songs! As we go on, we will also incorporate ear training and more complex pieces, selected based on your personal goals. I can't wait to start this journey with you!
