I have been teaching piano for almost 20 years. I have taught classical, blues, jazz, country and gospel styles. I am well versed in traditional methods of piano study, but I also have a great deal of success in helping classically trained students learn how to play rock, blues and jazz styles.
Learning Piano by Learning to Read Music
Emphasis on Posture, Hand and Finger Control at the Keyboard, Controlled Relaxation
Classical and Popular Styles
I would love to help you learn to play piano! I specialize in beginner students and pop styles. I use the Piano Adventures curriculum to give an introduction to classical piano and teach how to read music. I also use chord charts and demonstration to teach pop/keyboard style playing. This is a great way to learn how to jam or play something you love from the radio. I look forward to meeting you!
I have vast experience with both Suzuki and traditional methods and utilize a student-centered approach based on each student's age, level, and specific musical interests,abilities and goals.. Learning piano requires patience,discipline and above all a feeling of enjouyment any time a student sits down at a piano or keyboard, or comes to a lesson. I pride myself on my ability to establish a good rapport with all my students and am happy to work on pieces or songs of their choosing.
