Overview

What's up, my name's Max Bergmanis and I'm glad you stumbled on my profile! The first thing you should know is that I'm absolutely in love with music and its teaching process.

I started playing when I was just three years old. I asked my parents to start me up on this journey. It has been an amazing, self-fulfilling process. I attended the University of Southern California Thornton School of Music and earned a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Piano. I'm patient and adaptable as a teacher and will always listen to my students' needs.

If you've got any questions at all, please don't hesitate to ask me!

Max has been absolutely wonderful. All three of the kids love him, which isn't an easily accomplished feat as they all have different personalities! Haha, thank you so much Max :)

Max has been my daughter's piano teacher for several months and she really enjoys her lessons with him. He is patient and easy to get along with. He makes piano fun and she is always motivated to learn when she is with him.

Max was very patient with both grandchildren. He quickly assessed their individual skill levels and taught accordingly. Both seemed excited to continue.
