Hello! My name is Caelin, I am a classically trained pianist with a B.A in Music in Piano Performance, having recently graduated with honors. I have extensive performance, teaching and tutoring experience with an emphasis on classical music, and have worked with beginner, intermediate, and advanced students. I was awarded Academic Recognition in Music from the University of La Verne, and was elected Collegiate Music Delegate for the Mu Phi Epsilon Music Fraternity International Convention.
I believe music is the noblest and most powerful of the arts, and the best mode of expression for both performers and listeners. My teaching style focuses heavily on technique, performance style and knowledge of theory so that the player will be able to progress throughout their musical career. Practice is key! I always expect the most out of my students and will push them to work hard, practice and discover their own musical voice while having fun making music! I believe anyone and everyone is capable of improving themselves and expressing something beautiful through music.

Mu Phi Epsilon (ΜΦΕ) is a co-ed international professional music fraternity. Today, Mu Phi Epsilon has chapters both nationally and internationally. The fraternity supports achievement in music through the awarding of grants and scholarships, as well as music competitions, concerts, and summer music programs. Much of this work has been supported by the Mu Phi Epsilon Foundation, an organization that has been in existence since 1963, as well as fundraising and donations.
The National Honor Society (NHS) is the nation's premier organization established to recognize outstanding high school students. More than just an honor roll, NHS serves to honor those students who have demonstrated excellence in the areas of scholarship, leadership, service, and character. These characteristics have been associated with membership in the organization since its beginning in 1921.
