Start your musical journey online with me! I have 10+ years of teaching piano lessons (both in person and online!) and working in a music classroom. My students can access a wide variety of repertoire from classical music to folk songs to popular music. Students will build a strong foundation of musical literacy that can lead to many years of piano lessons or that can be transferred to any instrument. Each students needs are accommodated for, as lessons are highly personalized. All ages (preschool-adult) and levels (beginner-advanced) are welcome. Hope to meet you!

Piano CurriculumI use the Bastien Piano Books as the main method book in student lessons. I believe these books do a great job covering music theory and musical concepts while also providing students a variety of engaging pieces to learn.I supplement these method books with additional sheet music, workbooks to facilitate music literacy, worksheets to reinforce musical concepts, and frequent "fun" materials to help students stay engaged. Students do study a lot of classical music and work on technical ability, however students also learn from a variety of genres including popular music, movie music, show tunes, etc. Woodwind CurriculumI use the Rubank Books for most Flute, Oboe, and Clarinet students. I like these books because they move at a quick pace, but allow the student to develop good technique through a variety of exercises. Students also work extensively on scales/scale exercises to facilitate development of good technique. Each student is also provided with a major piece of Solo Repertoire that is meant to encourage musical development and focus on several musical concepts the student needs to work on. I often supplement these materials with workbooks/worksheets to reinforce musical concepts and music literacy.
