Do you want to learn to play piano? Maybe you've never played before or maybe you haven't played in a while and want to pick it up again. Whatever your story is, I can teach you all you need to know about posture, proper technique, and theory so you can play whatever style of music you want on piano!
I teach beginners and intermediate levels
There are as many methods of teaching piano as there are teachers.
I like to borrow ideas from others as well as offering my unique approach so there is a blend of traditional and non-traditional. I want each student to be able to read music, play by ear, be familiar with chord structure and improvisation and all the wonderful things musicianship can bring but most of all, I want my students to truly enjoy playing the piano and I do believe that process at least as important as product.
I have been teaching piano for over 40 years, full-time for the past 13. Besides the actual repertoire, technique and theory are always included in my lessons because they are essential. Sight reading and ear training are also included in some lessons.
I stress accuracy in playing and attention to details! I also teach my students HOW to practice. Slow, accurate practice is the answer. Practicing takes patience!
Please note: Home lessons must be at a location that I can get to easily with public transportation. I do not have a car.
I have been teaching Piano for 2 years and specialize in catering to my students' needs. My main styles are jazz, blues, and rock. I like to use the Internet and technology like smartphone apps, sheet music databases, and home recording to aid my students in their musical journey.
Additionally, I specialize in teaching students how to use chords, scales, song forms and other musical vocabulary so students can learn to write their own music.
