Overview

I am an 17 year old pianist and trumpet player with over 15 years of experience. I love to teach others the art of playing piano and trumpet and would love to be able to have a full time online job of teaching students how to play, compose, arrange, and perform their pieces. I have over 50 awards from piano competitions to festivals, and over 25 awards for the trumpet. I also strongly believe that every student learns differently and at their own pace, and excel at communicating with people and students. If you take lessons from me, I assure you will go on from beginner to mastering your instrument!
