Teaching since:
2001

I am an active musician (my band performs >50 times in a year) in Philadelphia region. I play piano/el. piano and hammond organ. With my band, I play Funk, New Orleans, Classic Rock and Blues. As a piano player, I perform piano solo in Jazz, Pop/Rock, Blues, and Latin.

I have been playing keys for over 20 years and graduated from Berklee majoring in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught adult and students as young as 5 years old. Teaching will be focused in stylistic playing (chord playing, improvisation, transposition) for students over 10 years with at least 1 year continuous piano training. I welcome piano training for beginner. A baby grand piano is available at my house for piano tutoring should you choose to come to tutor's location.

My graduate study was in Acoustics. I am an acoustical consultant and also an audio engineer. I specialized in room acoustics and electro-acoustics (loudspeaker design). I have a studio at home and open to audio tutoring (recording and mixing) request as well.

I am originally from Indonesia and have already published two books. I can help with Indonesian language tutoring for English native speakers. I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian,

I welcome tutoring requests in Music (Piano, Composition/Arranging), Music Theory, Music Production or other Audio/Acoustics related topics.

Experience

Keyboardist
Aug 2010 - Present
New Pony

New Pony delivers a soulful, driving, deep-in-the-pocket brand of funk and soul with a a little southern flavor that practically dares audiences not to move. Live, the chemistry between the band members fuses through a kind of musical alchemy into an infectious electricity wherever they play. Fortunately, their new CD, "Make Your Move," captures their live sound in all its funky, fire breathing splendor. The song writing is polished, the musicianship is accomplished and tight, and the rhythm section lays down a groove as wide as a boulevard and as tight as a wire, while the horn section erupts like a flashes of lightening. The Philadelphia City Paper recently said of them, "they groove, they rock, they make you dance and they throw one of the best parties around."

Since forming in 2006, New Pony has established themselves as one of the most sought after and entertaining bands on the local and regional scenes. Their schedule takes them to most of the top venues in Philly, as well as all over Bucks, Montgomery, Delaware, Northampton, Berks, and Chester counties. The band also makes regular trips to Baltimore, NYC, Delaware, and the Jersey shore. They've been a featured performer at some of the region's top festivals, and they've opened for a number of national acts including Bonerama, The Budos Band, Big Sam's Funky Nation, Bernie Worrell, Papa Grows Funk, The Main Squeeze, and Robert Randolph and the Family Band.
