Piano shouldn't be boring, it shouldn't just be Bach, and it shouldn't be endless, pointless exercises.

Piano should be fun, interesting, and practical. Theory, scales, and exercises should be helpful, practical, and directly tied into pieces a student is learning, and each student should get the opportunity to work on pieces they're interested in, not just keep to standard repertoire only.

I tailor piano lessons to each student, their goals, and their musical tastes. While I use the Faber Piano Adventures curriculum, students are always welcome to bring in extra pieces to work on or ask for help finding something specific. Every student will learn the basics of sight reading, playing by ear, improvising, and harmonizing--then work more on whatever they are interested in.

As a professional pianist, I will teach practical skills that can actually earn my students money when they get advanced enough, such as reading lead sheets, playing with the timing of a piece, and accompanying

I take a holistic approach to teaching voice. When you sing, your entire body is your instrument, which means that you have to be attuned to your whole body to produce the healthiest, most organic sound. I've been teaching for 13 years, and in that time I've leaned lots of different methodologies. I use a combination of knowledge from my classical training in conjunction with yoga, mindfulness and real world experience to give my students the best path forward in their musical journey. Whether you're just starting out or already a working professional, with my guidance and teaching you'll be making healthier and freer sounds.

I teach guitar from a wide background in many genres. You can expect to learn chord and scale theory, as well as mechanics, tone control, note and key identification, and ear training. We can explore any genre of interest, however my specialties are in blues, rock, classic rock, bluegrass, and country.

Study with an experienced teacher and an award winning performer. Sing for fun or prepare for performances, exams, and auditions. I specialize in students ages 15+ and teach in a variety of styles ranging from Opera, Classical repertoire, Music Theatre, Gospel, and Popular song. My vocal technique stems from a foundation of good breath support, resonance, and body alignment. I create a supportive and encouraging environment but will challenge each student according to their level.

As a singer, I've performed with the Royal Opera House; Finnish National Opera; Opera Theatre of Saint Louis; The Dallas Opera; Birmingham Opera Company; San Diego Opera; Deutsche Oper Berlin; and Festival d’Aix-en-Provence to name a few.

About Tai

I am a professional singer specializing in operatic repertoire; however, I am equally comfortable in other genres having grown up singing gospel, pop, and everything in between. I have sung with companies such as the London Handel Festival; Innsbruck Festival of Early Music; Finnish National Opera;

Chess Rules: a Step-by-Step Guide for Beginners

But, of course, not everybody is born knowing the rules of chess---there are, in fact, many out there who are unfamiliar with the game, and need an introduction. Especially now …

Basic Sewing Stitches for Beginners

There are many different types of sewing stitches that allow you to achieve certain goals. For example, if you want to sew an eyelet, you’ll want to master the blanket stitch, but if you’re looking to add a clean finish to a raw edge, go for a zigzag stitch using a sewing machine.  In our hand and sewing machine stitch guide, we’ll review the man …
