What's up, my name's Max 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!
