Hi I've been teaching basic piano and music theory since 2005, and can teach rudimentary music reading as well. I specialize in jazz and latin jazz styles of improvisation, as well as ear training, transcribing (or 'hear and play'), and using the keyboard to produce music on the computer, including making bass and drum tracks.

My strengths are jazz and latin jazz improvisation and harmony, reggae, afrobeat, dancehall, hip hop and r&b, but I can teach all styles.
