What makes piano lessons with me unique is my wide interests,experiences, and passions within music. I've studied classical and jazz and have a degree in pop music which enables me to teach in any genre. I also work hard to personalize each lesson and really get to know my students learning styles.

Teaching since:

I am a professional multi-instrumentalist, singer-songwriter and producer. I graduated from USC Thornton School of Music with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance, specifically within Popular Music. Students can expect their lessons to be highly personalized based on their interests and learning styles. Having operated in so many facets musically, I know how much depth is involved in being a complete musician and I encourage my students to be lifelong music lovers. I've performed alongside wide ranging acts such as John Fogerty, Glenn Frey, The Beach Boys, X-Ambassadors, and Diplo, and I've been mentored by greats such as Patrice Rushen and Glen Ballard. Knowing the value that mentorship has played in my musical journey encourages me to pay-it-forward. I love working with students who are as curious and passionate as I am.

Rees has been providing my 2 kids, ages 6 and 7 with piano lessons for about a month and a half. He is very good with them. Patient, engaging and is building good rapport. He approaches both kids differently based on their age and abilities.

He has a very tender touch and that fits with my voice. Thank you very much. Dr B.

Rees was AMAZING with my boys, at the time they were 8 and 10. They are very different in the way they learn and he was able to adapt to teach them each in an individual way that they loved. I only wish he still lived in town.

Rees was a phenomenal instructor for my two children. He tailored instruction to meet their individual needs and interests. He also kept them engaged and motivated. A great piano instructor!

Rees inspired a love of music in my daughter that has lasted for the past 7 years when she first started with him. He has an attention to detail and music composition which he's able to incorporate into a fun learning environment. He's since moved from our area but his impression has lived on in my daughters love of music. Consider yourself incredibly fortunate if you have the opportunity to bring him into your child's musical instruction. We've yet to be able to recreate the Rees experience but our fortunate that the base he provided has carried us even now that he has moved on.
