Beginning-intermediate levels accepted (0-2 years playing experience). Piano lessons utilize several method books and focus on posture, hand position, technique, music reading, repertoire preparation and musical interpretation. Piano students are invited to choose additional music that interests them to bring to lessons for help.

The development of the piano lessons will depend on the level, goals, needs and available time of study of each student. Starting with board exercises that will provide independence and strengthen the fingers of both hands, studying at the same time the rhythmic figures, elements and symbols of a score.
I propose a flexible program to keep students excited and motivated, the idea is to make a diverse and entertaining class, although it is important to consider that the piano is a very rich instrument (rhythmic, harmonic and melodic instrument), which gives us many possibilities, but that requires constant practice to achieve a beautiful sound.
I've been teaching piano for 9 years and my students have gone on to gain acceptance to various arts schools, magnet schools, and college music programs.
