I am a passionate teacher and believe in the musical potential of all students. I am eager to work your child to help unlock their abilities and motivation. It is my view that communication is a two-way road and it is excited to provide instruction while properly communicating with her students. Through this, I can overcome each individual’s obstacles and also enhance their inner strengths. With the right instruction, developing the right motivation, and of course practice, she feels every student has the potential for great success.

I began teaching piano to children in my neighborhood when I was in 7th grade and continued teaching through high school. I used the John Thompson method along with a note speller and taught on a baby grand piano. After several years, I returned to teaching piano not only to children, but to adults as well using the Alfred All-in-One method. Currently, I teach piano at my home studio on a grand piano and at three private school campuses four days a week in an after-school program. With everyone I teach, my specific goals include helping students gain proficiency in sight-reading, rhythm, and playing with expression. Through the process of teaching, I identify what the student is interested in as far as style-of-music is concerned. For example, I have a child that is interested in playing jazz, so along with teaching the basics, I include a jazz pieces. Overall, I want my students to love what they are doing with their music and I strive to achieve this.
Piano Lessons may include the following...
+ Piano warm-up exercises

+ Selected songs to practice
+ A recorded copy of the lesson to review and practice with.
As a private instructor, Nicholas seeks to develop students of his own to build excellent technique that they may become confident and comfortable pianists in any style they desire.

Piano is my secondary instrument and I've been teaching it for the past year. I've helped my students develop a love for the instrument as well as general music theory. I go through the different aspects of music, how to read and understand the different signs and symbols, step by step and make sure to give students enough material to practice. The book I like to use is piano adventures as well as works by Teleman, Chopin, and Mozart to start students off.
For more advanced students, typically the focus is put on performance, composition, advanced music theory and musical tones and colors. Works by Bach, Debussy and Beethoven are emphasized.
