I've been teaching piano for over 20 years and emphasize the fundamental skills in the beginning: how to easily read music, play in time, sight-reading, basic music theory and basic scales and technique. I'm a versatile performing musician and composer myself and so love to teach all styles including classical, jazz, rock, blues and more! We have a student showcase party every year where all the students get together to perform and showcase their skills.
I play and teach all styles and all ages. I'm patient and supportive with younger students. A typical comment from older students about my lessons would be: "I've had so many years of piano lessons and this is the stuff I've always wanted to learn.
I have most students improvising at their very first lesson.
I take students of any age, starting with age 8, who are just beginning with their musical journey, or who are returning to the piano after many years. I teach the basics, including basic rhythms, notation, scales, arpeggios, chords, etc. as well as learning pieces. I am interested in the musical styles of the various periods of music history, and keyboard literature from the Baroque to the 21st century. I structure lessons to suit the needs and desires of each student.
Patience, support and practice are the only things required to play the piano. I can help with all of them!
I have over 20 years experience teaching beginning to intermediate piano and music theory. My integrated musical approach works for all ages and attention levels. Learn rhythm on a full drum set, play or sing along in piano and violin duets, be involved in interactive music games, and then take the learning and fun home with suggested music apps and websites. Lessons are customized to your goals and include entertaining songs, fun technique exercises, hands-on music theory, and performance tips.
