Teaching since:
March 1988

I have been teaching all types of students and never get tired of it. If you have a child who is interested in playing, I have 25 years of helping all types of students get to their goals. I have a strong classical and jazz background, and can teach any age group, including special education and blind students. I have two college 4 year degrees and have been teaching at Cassells music for 12 years, dealing with all possible situations. I am very flexible to your needs, and have interaction with both the parent and student.

*** Lesson Details ***
I always confer with the parent to find out what type of teacher their child will respond best to. I can change my style to match any situation. My lessons include note reading, musicianship, theory, composition, and a variety of musical games. I can have a five year old reading simple music in as little as 1 month.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Student needs a keyboard. I'll bring books as needed (with a discount from the store I work at) .

Greg B is a natural teacher.

Thanks to Greg B, I have learned to play the piano well enough to feel confident with sight reading music, and excited to explore classical, popular and jazz music at an intermediate level. Greg is skilled, talented and patient; he is a natural teacher and I'm happy to continue lessons with him in the future.
