Philadelphia has a rich musical history and is home to one of the nation’s top five orchestras and the Philly Pop. The city’s arts and culture make it an ideal place to be when thinking about learning how to play an instrument like the piano. Piano is one of the most popular instruments in the world and is often used in orchestras as well as for accompaniment, composing, and rehearsal. The versatility of the piano will allow you to explore almost any genre of music, including jazz, classical, pop, rock and R&B.
The piano is a common instrument to start out on, but it’s essential to begin with the right foundation. Nearly all self-taught pianists never advance beyond an early-intermediate stage; that is why it is so important to get attention and feedback from a qualified teacher.

My approach to introductory piano is for my students first to understand music as the universal language it is. Identifying the elements, patterns, fingering, reading and theory will be examined. Genres will be discussed with the goal of the individual learning to play a new song by the end of our journey.
