My profound love, passion and patience in my piano lessons are staples to what makes my piano lessons unique. For every piano lesson, I will not only make sure that you will learn and get the most out of our lessons, but that I am able to effectively teach, cater, and customize your lessons according to what you are inspired to do! Your goals and needs will be highly valued and respected, so I will also make sure that I am able answer any questions you may have along the way in the best way possible-- from establishing proper foundations in understanding music, reading music, and to even interpretation, and allowing your own individual artistry to grow!

Not only will you be able to play piano in no time, but you will be building a strong foundation of note reading, music theory, ear training, sight reading, technique, and more. Let's get started!

Teaching since:
2017

I am a professional classical pianist, singer, arranger and composer located in Los Angeles, CA. I am also 2 years from graduating the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music with a Bachelors of Music, with concentrations in both Piano Performance and Music Composition.

My life has regularly revolved around music since the early age of 7, following until High School I became immensely active in almost all the High School ensembles and programs offered. Ranging from Jazz Band, to Marching Band, to Symphony Orchestra, I gained familiarity with a wide array of instruments other than piano, which include the Bb Clarinet, Cello, Viola, and Guitar. In 2017, I also successfully earned the Certificate of Merit for Piano (Advanced Level), where I received Branch Honors for excellent marks on my playing of memorized solo piano repertoire, sight reading, the ear-training test, and the music theory test.

I teach piano students of all different ages and experience levels. Having studied classical piano for 10 years, and composition for 7 of those, I am confident in teaching from both a professional and personal perspective. At the Conservatory I currently attend, I enjoy finding ways to improve teaching students because I believe each student not only deserves effective teaching, but an open environment to feel free to ask questions-- as it is essential to learning. I am committed to making sure every student of mine is able to achieve their musical goals, expand their knowledge of music, and grow as a pianist.

At the current moment, I am heavily involved in the following CSULB Ensembles: 49er chorus, Concert Band, and the New Music Ensemble. Along with these ensembles, I am continuing to study many solo repertoire for classical piano by famous composers such as Chopin, Liszt, Beethoven, Bach, Brahms, and Bartók. I am additionally an MTNA Certified Collegiate Member in District 3: California State University, Long Beach (CSULB) Collegiate Chapter.

My personal passion is Classical and Pop, but I firmly believe that all styles rely on a well-rounded and cultivated foundation. I look forward to meeting you and helping you to become a better musician!
