Teaching since:

Teacher in SK Piano Academy

I teach private piano lessons and music theory. Students of all ages are welcome. My teaching philosophy is to assist students to achieve their personal goals in music in a tailored, enjoyable, and efficient manner.

I encourage students to perform and share their talents through participating in studio recitals and masterclasses. My students have the opportunities to participate in local music events such as competitions, theory tests, and auditions.

I am an accompanist in Old Dominon University, Norfolk State University, and Nansemond-Suffolk Academy. I offer accompanying services for events.

Piano · In studio

Tristi is an excellent teacher. She uses a great balance of positive comments about your performance and comments about areas that need improvement. She plays beautifully, which provides good models for learning. Her knowledge of composer's styles and the periods of music is excellent. She is also very personable.

Cautiously optimistic. Only my first lesson, but she seemed very knowledgeable and was certainly patient with my questions and bumbling. I look forward to future lessons with her!
