Get tailored piano lessons from an awarded top music teacher
Every student has unique needs. Any student will succeed if the instruction is tailored to their learning processes. Since every student learns in a different fashion, it is necessary to use both traditional methodology and Suzuki methodology while teaching. Each student is placed in the program and course that best suits their learning needs. I expect my students to attend the lesson every week, complete all assignments, and listen to directions.

Evan really takes the time to get to know my son and his abilities. He has been very accommodating to our lesson changes when my son is active in school sports. Evan is very professional and communicates effectively. He is also open to feedback on how I feel the lessons are progressing.
