- Teaches students:
- Ages 5+
- Teaching since:
I've been playing piano since I was 8 years old, and have 12 years of classical training. I also play guitar and saxophone, and have participated in workshops with renowned Jazz musicians Mel Brown, Dan Balmer, and others. I have also been involved with the Oregon Music Teachers Association, and performed regular recitals throughout my musical education. The greatest benefit of my years of musical study has been the ability to play music with my friends and for my own enjoyment.
I teach all ages, and am well-suited for beginner and early intermediate students. I see the importance of building a strong foundation through technique and theory, but also hope to let the student communicate what they hope to accomplish and enjoy from learning piano. Having relaxed lessons that are flexible to the student's learning styles make the experience all the more enjoyable. I hope we can play some music together!
