I have been passionately studying piano for 10 years and teaching it privately for 4 years, along with some class piano teaching experience. Teaching is a great passion of mine, and my ultimate goal is to guide students to be creative and appreciative of music at the piano.

I use a number of resources within my lessons. For children and most teenagers, I use the Faber Piano Adventures as a primary method book. I will also make use of their supplemental books for sight reading and music theory. For adults (and some teenagers), I use the Alfred's Basic Adult Piano Course (the Adult All-In-One Course book). After the completion of 2 or 3 method book levels, I will begin to introduce repertoire by the select composers of all musical periods and styles.
