Hi there! My name is Chris. I teach music to people just like you and I help people achieve their musical dreams! I teach how to play piano by ear by teaching the system that professional musicians use to learn songs quickly. You can be one of those people who hears a song on the radio once and then can sit down and play it instantly. It is not a magic trick. It is a system that you can learn. These are lessons for students of all ages and all skill levels. Your lessons will focus on what you want to learn. If you want to learn pop songs by ear, we will focus on that. If you want to learn the classical repertoire, we will focus on that. Or how about learning a song from your favorite video game? Whatever it is that gets you excited about music, that is what we will focus on! This is more than just lessons. This is a mentorship with a professional musician that can take your skills to the next level. Whether you are a total beginner or a seasoned pro, we will set clear goals and get to work on accomplishing them together!

I am a professional musician and entrepreneur dedicated to sharing my love and passion of music with others. I have a long track record of teaching piano, conducting, arranging, orchestration and tutoring ear training and theory ever since I was a conservatory student myself. This lifelong vocation of mine is equally important to me as performing. As a certified Steinway education partner, I specialize in developing students to reach their full potential. Whether you are totally new to piano or a seasoned player wishing to brush up your skills, I can help you develop an in-depth experience with piano. During lessons I emphasize skill development in developing proper technique, critical thinking and listening, creative problem-solving, efficient practice, and attention to separating the different elements in the music in order to pay closer attention to detail. With repertoire, I work closely with each individual student tailoring their own custom lists with a mix of genres and difficulty levels. To encourage growth and consistent improvement, I recommend all my students to perform once or twice a year in online recitals but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level. I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of my students. If you commit to making music an integral part of your life, I will open new paths of expressing yourself through music that you never thought possible. Whatever your skill level and personal goals may be, I will help you improve and enjoy playing the piano more than ever. The skills you will learn in our lessons can be applied to all areas of your life, not just piano. No two students are exactly alike so I customize the curriculum for each individual student so they can best succeed on the piano. For beginner students, I usually start off with the Faber Piano Adventure series for young students and for adult beginners the Alfred Adult All-in-One Course to teach the basics and fundamentals of piano playing. As the student progresses, I gradually add scales and arpeggios and supplement the materials by selecting repertoire tailored to fit the student’s tastes and specific goals. I encourage my students to improvise as well. For intermediate and advanced students, I address the technical needs of each student and teach the standard repertoire in the piano literature and any specific repertoire they wish to learn. Focus is geared toward bringing out nuances and improving musicianship and artistry. Piano is for anyone who wants to learn and it’s never too late to start! Lessons are available for either 45 or 60 minutes. 30 minute lessons are available only for young beginners under the age of 10. If you have any questions regarding how to start lessons with me, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to having you join my studio and let’s start making music together!

I credit my first piano teacher for giving me the courage, technique, and love of music that has made me into the performer and teacher that I am today. Piano gave me a foundation for understanding and loving music and developing my musicianship. This passion has led me to receive a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Michigan, and I have a Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. My goal now is to inspire my students with the same fundamentals and joy for music that my first teacher instilled in me. Beginning students of all ages are welcome, and styles that I teach include classical and pop. Lessons will focus on technique, reading, ear training, and basic music theory. Everyone is unique and has their own learning style, and I tailor my teaching to each individual. I love to helping others understand music better, play the piano, and achieve their personal musical goals. It would be a pleasure to help you learn!
