Overview

I am a classical pianist currently obtaining my Artist Diploma at the College Conservatory of Music. I have performed in Japan, Canada, Spain, France and the US. I have extensive experience teaching all ages not only in piano but in music history and music theory.
I love to encourage my students to not only explore the music they are learning but to also have excitement to learn about the music world. Who was Beethoven, Bach or Schumann? What makes their music so important. I love to have my students not only learn but listen to great performances from the best pianists. I am also a teacher with the Wolfgang Amadeus School in addition to running my own private lessons in home and online. I have taught the disabled and have been teaching since I was very young.

Learning piano is such a fun activity, and you need someone who not only has experience teaching but who also knows what its like to get up and perform. I have conservatory level teaching experience that makes me stand out!

· Piano · In home I had Scott teach my 9 year old son for over three years. We met at the community music school in group lessons and after his class I asked for private lessons. It was such a wonderful experience and Scott's excitement and enthusiasm really transferred to Jake. Scott is very good at communicating and my son can be easily excitable, but he could control and channel my sons excitement to great focus for learning. I would absolutely recommend Scott as he was the best teacher we have ever had.

· Piano · In home Scott taught my daughter both Piano and Music Theory for the Royal College of Music level tests. She passed easily and was awarded an excellence award in the performance category. Scott is very professional and has the ability to really improve a student in a very short time. I absolutely recommend him to any new learners or any level. My daughter loved the listening activities and recordings as well.
