I am currently an active musician and performs with my band regularly 60-70 times a year (once or twice a week). I play piano and hammond organ mainly. With my band, I play Funk, Funk-Rock, New Orleans and Blues. In piano solo playing, I also play Jazz, Blues and Pop.

I have been playing keys for over 20 years, teaching piano/keys for over 10 years and graduated from Berklee College of Music majoring in Jazz Composition and Music Production & Engineering. I have taught adult and students as young as 5 years old. I welcome piano training for all levels. A baby grand piano is available at my house for piano tutoring should you choose to come to tutor's location (see my Let It Be video to peek on my studio). I also have a home studio to accommodate audio recording/mixing lessons.

I am originally from Indonesia and already published two books. I can help with English-Indonesia tutoring. In recent years, I have done many seminars/workshops both in English and Indonesian.

Note: I just joined takelessons in Jan 2017, therefore I do not have ratings yet.

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.
