About Daniel
Hi, there! My name is Daniel and I can't wait to meet you! I love music, and have played the piano since I was 6 years old. I was one of those kids who loved to practice. I am passionate about teaching and love imparting the techniques, wisdom, and practicality that I was taught to my students. I understand that every student learns differently and I cater each lesson to the individual student. I use a combination of fun games, unique teaching techniques, and electronic aids to adequately teach each lesson.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Piano students should provide an piano with a full set of
88 keys (acoustical or digital is fine). I will provide metronome and any other teaching aides that may be used during the lesson.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in sacred with a proficiency in hymn improvisation. I also am proficient in classical teaching.

This guy did not even show up for the first scheduled class. The class was scheduled 2 weeks before and I sent a text message to remind 2 days before the scheduled day. He sent an email 30 mins before the class to tell me he is not coming. Dd not even have the courtesy to call.

There are specific method books I like to use for teaching, and those will be required of students.

I had a music background but came to Christina unable to sight read, or find my way back to playing comfortably. She selected perfect teaching material to train my ear as well as my eye to the sheet music. Her lessons are customized to the student as she works with them. They are progressive, building on each other in both subtle and obvious ways. In only a few months i'm sight-reading and have been introduced to a variety of music styles. I very much look forward to every lesson and more!

I'm a returning student after 40 years, convinced I no longer knew how to sight read and had no sense of rhythm. Christina selected exactly the right material to start me off with! The perfect combination of keyboard familiarity, progression thru different keys (I, IV, V etc in key of C, B etc), what 'resolved' sounded like, music time (4/4, 6/8), the cues for volume + tone. She tuned up my mind as well as my ear - I couldn't be more thrilled!
