A Better Way to Learn
Teaching since 1997
Awarded Teacher of the Month from Takelessons.com
My approach is fun, simple, and easy to understand. I focus on getting a strong foundation and excellent first experience with music. The child will be given a lesson and theory book to work from, but will also be encouraged to sing music they personally like. This keeps the child motivated to practice and adds an element of fun! These songs can then be used in our recitals, for auditions, or put in their personal repertoire book.
I have also successfully prepared many students for their Cab Calloway School for the Arts auditions and have made it in.

I've been teaching piano for over 13 years. I use Alfred's Premier Piano Courses levels 1 - 6 for children. For adults I use Alfred's Lesson Book 1 - 3. My teaching goals for all my students are to enable them to read and make music so that they could experience the joy of journeying in the realm of musical sounds.
My philosophy in teaching piano is very much like learning to drive a car. Once a person learns the mechanism of driving so many possibilities open for the person to enjoy trips to many places that bring pleasures that destiny could offer. In some ways, playing the piano is very much like learning to drive a car. Once the mechanism of making music is mastered, the possibilities of making journeys of musical sound is endless.

If you really want to advance your piano playing, mastering the art of sight reading can take you far. But if you're struggling, don't worry. Although some people have a more natural ability to pick up a piece of music and play it sight unseen, the good news is that sight reading is a skill you can improve upon with practice--and even teach yourself from scratch. In fact, there are basic things you can do every day that will improve your dexterity and translate to your piano skills. Try t …

Studies show, time after time, that music lessons in early childhood are essential for creating neural pathways for brain development. They also give children a head start on creativity and self-expression. Music was likely our first language as human beings, and it still provokes a very primal response in us - anybody from anywhere in the world can listen to a song and know what emotion it is trying to convey. If you ask an adult if they took piano lessons as a child, many will say yes. …

As a beginner violinist, chances are you’re eager to play easy violin songs that will show off your new skills. While playing “Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star” is nice, you’re probably looking for some more popular tunes. For now, it’s a little lofty to expect to play one of Beethoven’s or Bach’s masterpieces right off the bat, but that shouldn’t discourage you. With enough time and patience, you will eventually become a skilled violin player who can perform nearly any kind of …
