Teaching since:

I have been teaching for more than 6 years to students of age 4 to 24. Recently I having been teaching students from intermediate to advanced, but I can cater to students of all levels of course. Currently, I am finishing my masters at New York University in piano performance and music composition. I reside in Jersey City, but can teach anyone around the public transportation corridor, including Manhattan. I mix my lessons with solid technical training, basic music theory fit for any musician, and applying those to play your favorite tunes.

I believe being a real musician means having both a solid technical foundation and the emotional lexicon to be able to play any piece your heart desires without being limited by out-of-shape fingers. In order for your heart to fully express itself, your hands must first do it justice!

And as you continue down this path, you will one day find yourself performing the piece you've always dreamed of. You may also encounter new kinds of music that you never knew you would love so much. Join me on this sonic journey to help you grow as a true musician!
