First thing I do before first day of class is send out an enthusiastic email and call shortly after. Briefly discussing and establishing the learning goals for the course based on the visual literacy,technical,and intellectual competencies the students should achieve by the end of a period is ideal for me to design the course or update an existing course for the student's desired outcomes. The syllabus and the schedule are completed along with a comprehensive strategy for what will take place during class.

Priscilla (Ms. P) is a wonderful instructor. She is fun, engaging and enthusiastic; but also a serious motivator for my preteen. I especially appreciate the weekly lesson summary provided by Ms. P that detail what was accomplished in the lesson and emphasizing what was performed particularly well by my student. I highly recommend Ms. P to anyone interested.

With 10 years of teaching piano lessons and 3 degrees in piano, I have both the expertise and experience to provide a uniquely tailored learning environment to piano students of all ages and levels. Teaching excites me because it gives me the opportunity to find out each student's individuality and to help them reach their inner potential. Since student goals vary from wanting to play chord charts in a garage band to aspiring to become a concert pianist, I do not have a rigid teaching method - rather, I tailor it to each student. Beyond the fundamentals of technique and reading music, piano lessons with me include focusing any amount of the following: classical, improvisation, composition, theory, jazz, popular styles, hymns, etc... I can't wait to begin guiding you on your musical journey with the piano!

About Ozzie

I am a pianist and a passionate teacher of pianists of all shapes and sizes. The joy of playing the piano is one that my skills as a teacher help me infuse into my students. I also find it to be quite a positive feedback loop for me: teaching makes me want to hone my own skills and playing well give

My sixteen-year-old has been taking with Ozzie since the fall. His sound is richer and cleaner than it has ever been. Ozzie is very technically oriented. He emphasizes the hand work, finger work, and overall technique. Thaddaeus' playing sounds so much more mature after these months with Ozzie! Thanks, Ozzie!

He celebrates your small accomplishments and ensures you understand the concepts, pronunciation, material and more before moving on to new material.

I worked with him online for several hours a week over a few months to recover forgotten French and push ahead in new areas. He was extremely responsive and flexible, got straight to the heart of what skills I needed to work on, and was a genuine pleasure to have as an instructor.
Let me be the first to say if you’re considering a language instructor, look no further."
