About Sam T.

I am a professional classical pianist, cellist, and singer and have years of teaching experience. I have served as musician and music director in local churches and am currently working on my music education degree. I have attained ABRSM Licentiate level for piano performance and Grade 8 certification for both cello and voice. I also teach music theory for those who want a better knowledge of music fundamentals and improvisation.

I teach piano students of all ages and experience levels. I studied classical piano for 16 years and can teach students to read music and pursue classical excellence. Students can also learn how to play contemporary music using chord sheets and learn how to improvise on popular songs and hymns.

I also teach beginner and intermediate cello students of all ages. I am an active cellist for local gigs and weddings and have 8 years of orchestral experience. Students who want to get started with cello lessons will learn correct technique, posture, and tunes. I use the Suzuki method and can teach up to book 5 level.

Voice students can expect to improve week to week in their vocal technique. Every voice has a unique timbre; I teach students to release built up tension and apply foundational techniques in order to unlock their own individual sound. I can help any student to sing with freedom, confidence, and expression.

The Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) is a world known system that provides music exams for all instruments and music theory. Students that take lessons with me can have a choice to take those exams, which gives students realistic short-term and long-term goals to measure their musical progress.

I have experience working with children of all ages and am an educator. I strongly believe that everybody has a God-given ability in music that only needs to be trained and nurtured to reach their highest potential. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
