If you take piano lessons from me, you can expect to learn to read notes and play in many varieties of music like pop, folk, classic etc. I have been teaching for 30 years and use many different books to build foundation and proper technique. I like to add fun songs that my students want to play as soon as they are able so it keeps their interest. I believe in taking a lessons every week as it keeps the learning progressing and the interest intact. I believe lessons should be fun, but we work hard also. If your interest is to write, improvise, or arrange music, I am able to help you with that also.
With music programs being eliminated from many school's education, I feel it is even more important than ever for children, off all ages, to participate in some form of musical experience. Being a piano teacher for over twenty five years, I have seen many benefits for those taking music lessons. Some of these benefits are building self esteem and confidence, learning to focus, developing mental discipline, overcoming the fear of getting up in front of crowds, not to mention being able to play songs that we enjoy. My philosophy of music is that you don't have to be an expert to be able to enjoy playing an instrument. It is not that difficult to learn to play piano or guitar; it just takes a little time and effort. I believe that practicing doesn't have to be hours a day either,
I have taught piano since 1971. I use the Bastien series because I have found it to be the most creative and easy to learn method. I also use what it is you want to learn to play. It is as important to play some things for fun and enjoyment
