Overview

I've been playing the piano since the age of 6 and enjoy passing the love of music to others. In 2014, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Pedagogy. While there I participated in accompanying different music groups and choirs. Although I do love accompanying others, my passion is to teach piano.

During the initial meeting, I find out what the student wants to accomplish from piano lessons. After hearing what they want I compile a plan of how to achieve his goals. No matter what the goals are for the individual, I give all my students a strong theory foundation and strive to challenge my students in many areas.

Piano Teacher

Aug 2011 - May 2014
Maranatha Piano Prep School

I started teaching back in 2009 before college and continued to teach all the way through college. I've worked with young children, teenagers, and adults. I've also been able to teach a child with ADHD and that stretched me as a teacher. Everyone has an ability to play the piano if taught correctly.

Angelina was extremely patient with my son, who had no experience on the piano. she gave clear instructions that were easy to follow and lots of praise. My son walked away eager to practice and ready for his next lesson. Highly pleased!

I am an adult taking lesson and she understands that life events gets in the way and she is patient with me but yet keeping it challenging enough to make the instructions interesting.

I have been wanting to take piano lessons for a long time and kept putting it off. I finally decided it is never to late to learn! After my first lesson with Angelina, I was very happy that I did! Angelina is sweet, patient, and very knowledgable about what she is teaching. I look forward to continuing lessons with her, and I highly recommend her to anyone intrested in learning to play the piano!
