I specialize in jazz piano but I teach all styles and am open to whatever pieces the student is interested in. If there is a piece with difficult-to-find sheet music I offer services for transcribing the piece to sheet music for the student and/or teaching the piece by ear to the student. Piano is a very important instrument for all musicians as it vastly improves one's hand-eye coordination, two-hand coordination, and sense of rhythm, and forces the player to cover melody and harmony at the same time. My students learn to love the piano, develop healthy practice habits that ensure steady improvement, and gain a deep understanding of musicality and the history of music.
