I have 12 years of experience playing the piano. My focus is primarily classical and sacred music. I have been teaching piano since 2016 and have loved every minute of it. I have also played for many special events (weddings/funerals/church worship team). My music instructor studied under interns of Juilliard School and Curtis Institute. From energetic kindergarteners with a list of favorite songs to learn to school-age students with an interest in the arts, my music students have found the piano to be a great creative outlet.

About Abigail

In my free time, I enjoy playing in my family's music band and learning new creative skills, such as sewing, crocheting, trying new recipes in the kitchen (including gourmet cookies), and am currently studying horticulture.

Playing the flute has given me so much joy, and it is my dream to pass that joy along to others. Music lessons can offer you so much more than a new skill or getting better at an instrument; they can improve your mental health, your confidence, and even help kids do better in school! Good music teachers teach their students how to find beauty in everything, to think more critically, and to see mistakes as opportunities for growth. These three ideas are at the core of my teaching philosophy. In all my lessons, beginner to advanced, students learn how to make beautiful music, sight reading, basic music theory, and safe practice strategies. We work out of the Rubank method book, but I also utilize handwritten exercises. I also always encourage my students to bring music they want to learn!

Absolute Beginners: In our very first lesson, students learn the parts of the flute and how to make a sound. We learn about flute care, and how to correctly hold the flute. Basic music theory is ...

Are you a Ted Greene fan? Look no further, Roel is your guy. He's a master at chord melodies and helped me learn the entire fretboard for the first time in my life.
Barclay Mills
Roel was a GOD at single-note bebop lines and really whipped me into shape. I auditioned for my first gig last month and totally bagged it! Thanks dude.
Jeff Thompson
Picking a new guitar is always a gamble, but I'm glad I took the plunge! I had been studying jazz since I was young, and I needed someone with a good ear to help me get to the next level. I must have been really lucky, since Roel absolutely fit the bill. Not only was he fun to work with, but he was also highly skilled -- I could tell he had put in his thousand hours.

My daughter has had only 6 lessons with Benjamin and I can already see huge improvement. Every single lesson Eden learns something new.
Benjamin has a very unique way of teaching and explains everything in a very understandable way.

"David is unlike any guitar teacher I have worked with. He pays close attention to details like finger placement or guitar hold and listens carefully to correct any bad habits, posture or form. Sometimes you are used to playing a certain way and don't notice some bad form or habits and he's able to diagnose sound issues. David is also great at being encouraging and suggesting ways of playing that makes sense for each song. He customizes the lesson so that you feel good about playing. He makes playing really fun and what seemed hard before, he helps to make it easy. He brings helps you feel like a rockstar after a few lessons. I highly recommend David!"
