Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced

I have studied the piano for fifteen years. I have studied and taught in multiple styles as well. In my lessons, I would teach the basics of playing the piano, reading and understanding sheet music, and the fundamentals of music theory. We can cover classical piano styles along with jazz or rock and roll.

My teaching philosophy is that a teacher is just the guide. They must ensure that the student reaches their destination of their own accord and desires.
