Teaching since:
September 2008

I am a driven, motivated and easygoing personality that loves nothing more than to make, learn and teach music. I've been lucky enough to pursue my desire for musical growth at my dream school Berklee College of Music and graduated in Music Production & Engineering and Contemporary Writing & Production with a minor in Writing Music for TV and New Media .I am a piano principle specializing in Pop and Jazz and play the bass as a secondary instrument. I've composed for an orchestra, arranged for a jazz big band and written numerous songs as well as doing mix and production work for for artists. I want to pass on this vast knowledge and experience that I have to an eager, determined and open minded student. Someone looking to explore the vast sea of musical mystery.

Apiwe is an incredibly patient and thorough piano teacher. He has a talent for teaching "non-theory" students like me the basics of music theory, making it fun and interesting! Apiwe is kind and knowledgable and I recommended him without pause.
