Levels taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
I have been teaching professional piano lessons for 13 years. I am educated in Classical and Jazz Piano. Classical has taught me the structure and fundamentals of piano while Jazz has shown me how to improvise and play with other musicians.

I customize lesson plans to fit individual learning styles of students while incorporating songs the student picks. I have taught songs from Disney, Movie Soundtracks, Video Game Soundtracks, Pop and Rock artists and more. I also assist in Student Showcases which allows me to show my students how to play along with other musicians. Music is a big part of my life and I hope that I can pass on that joy to each of my students.

About Denise C.

I have been teaching professional piano lessons for 13 years. I am educated in Classical and Jazz Piano. Classical has taught me the structure and fundamentals of piano while Jazz has shown me how to improvise and play with other musicians.

As a child, I was always interested in movie scores, like Harry Potter, Star Wars, Disney and many others. These popular theme songs inspired me to want to learn to play piano. My personal passion is still in soundtrack scores and contemporary music, however, I believe that every style and genre has something to teach.

At 15 years of age, I began to teach young beginners. Even though I was quite young when I started teaching, this allowed me to relate directly with my students.

For beginner students, I will start with the basics of note reading and theory. As students become comfortable with reading music, I start to incorporate songs of their choosing. I believe when a student selects a song of their choice, their passion for music quickly grows.

For intermediate students, our lessons will be centered on the student’s focus, such as, improving reading and playing skills, chord theory, in addition to ear training.

Remember, all great musicians start as students.
