I've been banging on the piano since I was 3, but piano became more structured when I turned 7 and I've loved it so much since then. I've been classically trained and have 15 years piano playing experience. My favorite genre is Modern Japanese Classical music (fancy name for anime and video game music). (:
I have been teaching students for six years. People aren't intimidated when I am around and I believe students benefit greatly when they are comfortable with the teacher and can feel natural around them. The teaching process is most successful when the students share their ideas, disagreements, goals; when they are challenged and test their abilities.
*** Lesson Details ***
I am very laid back and love to laugh, but I do expect the students to be prepared and practice, this way they benefit the most from each teaching session. I believe students should be involved in their curriculum, so I encourage all to bring in pieces THEY WANT to play because this will make the learning process overall more fun and enjoyable.
My trust is, if you practice regularly you can accomplish much in a short period of time. Whatever you put into piano, is what you will get out, whether great or small.
*** Specialties ***
Modern Japanese Classical. I like the Blues and Boogie genre also!! I also am very familiar with classical pieces from Scott Joplin, Rachmaninoff, Strauss, Bach, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Chopin to name a few - which help make a well rounded musician.
Our first lesson went really well. I was apprehensive about learning online but Sabrina was great and the software we used worked well to get us through the lesson. I'm looking forward to our upcoming lessons!
Very helpful, patient, understanding, and friendly. Would definitely recommend taking her lessons and I look forward to continuing my own.
Excellent instructor, direct but gentle with students. Extremely flexible with scheduling of classes. Overall, very satisfied and happy with Sabrina and her teaching style.
Sabrina is an awesome teacher. She and my 13 year old son connected immediately, and his skills have grown tremendously in a short time. Reliable, pleasant and very professional. I am very pleased to have found her.
My Son thinks she is the best!
Sabrina is a fantastic teacher. She listens to what her students want to do while still keeping the challenge level appropriate. Would recommend.
Sabrina is excellent! Very patient with kids!
My 7 yr old enjoys and looks forward to her piano lessons with Sabrina. Sabrina is very kind, professional and encouraging. She instructs with positive reinforcement and teaches in a way that is enjoyable and understandable to a 7 year old. Her passion for piano is contagious and my daughter often practices without being reminded.
She is both a fantastic instructor and pianist. The energy she brings forth is perfect to motivate any child to want to perfect and improve their playing capabilities.
