About John C.

With a pedigree going back to Beethoven, a bachelor's in music and a certificate in theory, harmony, and ear training from Berklee College of Music online, I have a broad and versatile musical background. My training began when I was in 6th grade and started taking piano lessons. By 9th grade I began competing in national private school fine arts competitions, and aside from my solo performance background I have had extensive experience accompanying, writing, and arranging music. I also come from a family of school teachers (both my parents, two aunts, and one uncle), and have extensive experience dealing with and teaching children (like tutoring, substitute teaching, coaching, and teaching in a church setting). Because of all this background, I feel well-prepared to not only bring a strong knowledge-base and skill-set to the lessons I provide, but also to helpfully convey that knowledge-base and skill-set to my students. My lessons are catered to the student and aim to develop the whole musician, technically and artistically, incorporating a broad musical understanding with the goals of the parent and/or student in mind. Let's make some true musicians! *** Travel Equipment *** I do not provide any travel equipment. The student should provide a piano/keyboard for lessons. *** Specialties *** Along with teaching traditional piano technique, I specialize in improvisation, arranging, songwriting, and composition.
