Teaching since:
September 1994

I can get you to the next level of your playing, arranging, and composing. I teach all levels from beginning, intermediate, or advanced levels for piano, saxophone, songwriting, composition, and arranging. I'm very experienced in playing and teaching jazz and commercial styles as well as traditional classical styles. If you want to play just for your own personal enjoyment on your new piano, or if you are wanting to get into a great college program, or if you want to be a professional, I will get you the results you want guaranteed.


When you sign up for lessons, you'll fill out a question sheet of what your goals are, what your favorite types of music, and your experience. Then I will customize your lessons to accomplish your goals in the shortest amount of time. You will be working on 4-5 things per week which includes: 1. Technical Skills, 2. Lesson Material, 3. Repertoire, 4. Harmony, 5. Sight Reading.

I have a very high retention rate with my students with an average of 4 or more years, but I have LIMITED available of spots available. Sign up today! Lessons are first come, first serve!

PIANO LESSONS
(for ages five and up))

I teach a variety of styles from classical to popular music. Whether you want to learn Bach or Alicia Keys, our teachers are happy to help you become the pianist you want to be. I will show you the fundamentals of sight reading, technique and theory, but they will also incorporate your favorite songs into your lessons. You do not have to have a piano at home to take lessons. A simple full size electronic keyboard will suffice for the first 6 months. We do recommend you also to consider renting a piano at a piano renting store. I have warm personalities and enjoy sharing their love for the piano with you.
