My name is Christian and I am a graduate of Duquesne University with a degree Music Technology- Composition. While at Duquesne I also studied piano (classical and jazz), music theory and harpsichord. In 2010 I began teaching piano privately to students from ages 7 and up. I am able to teach beginner to intermediate piano and music theory. Aside from classical music, I am also able to teach rock and improvisation.
*** Lesson Details ***
My lessons are always easy going and student oriented. I always allow the student to determine the pace of the lesson and progress, whether that is a variety of pieces to study or one at a time.
I use Alfred's Basic Piano Course for younger students and Alfred's Adult Basic Piano Course for adult students.
*** Studio Equipment ***
In my home studio I own a high quality Korg SP-280 keyboard. 88 weighted keys, provides a great balance of a real piano feel on a keyboard. It is an instrument I personally practice on for my piano lessons with great results! If you are comfortable learning on a keyboard, let me know and we can create lessons that work for you.
*** Specialties ***
Classical, Jazz, Improvisation, Rock Piano
