I am teaching at two elementary schools in West LA as a Orff music teacher for K-2.
I am lecturing at California State University at Long Beach (CSULB) for non-music major undergraduate students.
I am giving 1-on-1 piano lessons in the comfort of students' homes.

I design appropriate lessons for different levels and ages of students in order to keep the lessons fun! We sing, play, and improvise during the piano lesson! My students are also encouraged to have recitals in the end of the year.
