At the age of four, I began studying violin at the Colburn School of Performing Arts in Los Angeles, California. I was trained using the Suzuki Method until the age of nine. Throughout my adolescent years I competed in solo violin competitions, performed in numerous orchestras, attended prestigious music festivals, & began teaching! I received my Bachelors Degree in Violin Performance from Westmont College in Santa Barbara, California and my Masters Degree in Violin Performance from DePaul in Chicago. After intensively studying with instructors and performers from all over the world, I developed a diverse teaching philosophy that allows me to customize lessons to each student's needs. I am a very positive, supportive, & energetic person who knows how challenging it is to learn an instrument so I try to make it as fun as possible! Whether

About Max

Most recently, I was sponsored as one of eight pianists worldwide to attend the prestigious Verbier Festival Academy in Switzerland, summer of 2018. I was the sole American and Juilliard pianist to receive the honor.

I am a graduate of The Juilliard School in New York City where I earned a Bachelors of Music, and studied with the Susan W. Rose Chair of Piano Department, Dr. Yoheved Kaplinsky and legendary concert pianist, Hung-Kuan Chen; my history with the institution dates back to Juilliard Pre-College, where I graduated as a Juilliard Scholarship recipient. In addition to my formal musical education in classical piano, I'm also a graduate of the Lakeside School in Seattle, a highly selective, college preparatory school offering a rigorous academic program; notable alumni include Bill Gates, Paul Allen and the McCaw brothers. I am w

ell-versed and fluent in both English and Mandarin Chinese.

I am well accustomed to working with young children, adolescents and teenagers along with the elderly in retirement homes, and hope to nurture and instill in each of my students a genuine, individualized passion for music, along with imparting to each student all the knowledge I've attained in 19 years of musical experience off and on stage, playing at the highest caliber of competition in the world's most acclaimed venues and studying with some of the world's most sought after pedagogues. Furthermore, my goal is to accelerate the learning curve and to bestow all I know as quickly as possible, not wasting time on useless irrelevancies. I've taught many years privately in the greater Seattle area, as a private teacher at the Aspen Music Festival and as a private teacher serving the NYC area since 2015. My students have won regional and international competitions for young people, have performed at prestigious venues such as Benaroya Hall, Alice Tully @ Lincoln Center, the Kauffman Center, Foundation LV in Paris, and Carnegie Hall, and have been admitted to Pre-College institutions at Juilliard and Manhattan School of Music.

Max is an amazing instructor and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking to seriously learn and enjoy the piano. Before I began my lessons with Max, I was stuck on the same piece for two months, there was very little progress being made. I had a total of two lessons with Max and now I'm able to comfortably play the piece from memory. I cannot stress enough how beneficial he was in my huge progress jump. I look forward to every lesson knowing I'm going to learn and be exposed to something new every time. I've always wanted to learn how to play the piano, but I thought I was too old now to even try. I'm so thankful that I took the leap anyway and started this amazing journey of learning the piano and I couldn't of asked for a better guide than Max on this journey.

It’s very involved with you as a student. It’s also very apparent that he loves teaching his students. This makes his teaching very effective.

Tact & Kent
He is a very promising Juilliard student.
His teaching reflects being educated by the world’s most sought after classical piano mentors.
What he teaches is unorthodox and complex in nature, but he teaches and demonstrates effectively in an easily comprehensive manner.
I believe that learning his skills will have a tremendous impact on my child’s future in both music and life.
I strongly recommend him to anyone who cannot be satisfied with other instructors.
PS: He works well to encourage and nurture youth, as my sons are 6 and 9 years old.

I’ve been learning from Nathan for some time now. And the difference it has made in my technique, musicality, and presentation has been tremendous! He is kind and caring teacher that always makes you feel comfortable at whatever level you go to him.

I found him while preparing for an audition for a musical theatre gig. He was quick to respond and punctual with setting up the lesson ASAP. We went through the material and his instruction helped me craft not only how to show my best self in my presentation but how to do it in a healthy, long term way. I’ve been back to him several times since. His knowledge of the voice and music is endless. He can make anyone be better and feel better about being a vocalist. I recommend him to everyone!

About Temple

Music has the power to change and enhance people's lives. When I was 5 years old, I begged my parents for piano lessons until they obliged, and from there it formed the course of my life. I then began singing, and started training as a young teenager in voice. I went on to study at Westminster Choir College in Princeton, NJ for my Bachelor's in Vocal Performance. I have performed all over the world, from Barcelona to Carnegie Hall, and this past summer I was chosen to be a part of the exclusive Classic Lyric Arts program in France, which was a French language and performance intensive.

I moved to NYC after graduating in 2017 to audition and teach. I am currently pursuing my Masters in Vocal Performance at Mannes School of Music and am a student of Diana Soviero. With my background, training, and influence of my own amazing teachers, I h

ave the joy of imparting everything I know to my students.

Temple is such a wonderful teacher. She truly made me feel so supported and encouraged in my lessons. She taught me healthy voice techniques, helped me stop bad habits that I picked up from previous teachers and experiences, and helped me develop better support for my singing. I also really enjoyed that she incorporated theory into my lessons. I highly recommend Temple as a teacher.

"My middle-school aged son did a two hour session with Dr. Darrell one day where I would venture to say they covered a month's worth of music theory materi
al. After a while I got tired listening to it, but my son didn't. Darrell is patient yet firm, tough but caring. The pairing of Darrell's deep knowledge with a student who wants to learn is a powerful combination. He is committed to the success of his students."
