I took many years of piano when I was younger, and after a long time away from it I decided to jump back in.

I am experienced teacher in general - I have been teaching dance for 12 years, and I have tutored students in many different subjects at all grade levels. I enjoy teaching and sharing what I know and enjoy with others.

If you are new to piano, and want some help learning your way around the keys, and getting an idea of the building blocks of music, a few chords, how to read music, how to listen for and learn a melody by ear, a little technique and and some exercises for dexterity and ease, I can help you get started!

If you're not ready to commit or hire an expensive instructor just yet (note: experienced instructors who have studied music for a long time are certainly worth the expense), and just want an introduction from a very patient teacher to see if you want to continue, I'm happy to help. We will move at a pace that is most comfortable for you!

I am located in San Francisco, in the Lower Nob Hill area, and I may be able to travel nearby. Online lessons are also available.
