Lifelong piano learner, college trained, and now teacher over the past 3 years, piano is my preferred choice of musical expression. I teach all ages (earliest 4 yrs); and customize lessons for each student depending on their personal goals and preferences. Beginners will find the lessons motivational and enjoyable. All of my students CAN DO! Lessons are logical, and based on a step-upon-step learning system. I also have success with intermediate students who may have hit the wall, or are finding difficulty moving on in their learning. I am committed to identifying that barrier (whatever it may be) and helping the pianist overcome the issue. I specifically incorporate keyboard recognition, music reading/theory, artistic expression, composition, and ear training and stress outside lesson practice.
I am a college graduate and lifetime learner of musical artistry having 2 years practical piano teaching experience after 25 years of employment at a local higher education institution. I can engage the beginner in such a way that they will be motivated to continue into advanced and a professional level. I started my own music education at the age of 5 and have loved music ever since. My music career began in 3rd grade when I performed in a musical play and participated in vocal choral groups. I continued to improve in piano and vocal skill and traveled extensively with a national organization and a college representative team. My travels took me to Europe where I had the privilege to perform in places such as Notre Dam, palace of Versailles, the Basilica in Rome and other places. I ...
Simple and easy piano methods
I started music lessons at the age of twelve with private Piano lessons. I took lessons for 15 years with prominent teachers, while mastering piano technique with a wide array of classical repertoire, from Bach to Mozart, Beethoven and Chopin. I have been teaching piano since 1984 and acquired the skills through interacting with a variety of students of all tastes and needs. I am able to help a music oriented student reach at a better understanding of piano playing technique. *** Lesson Details *** I would like my students to listen carefully to what they play, and practice attentively, which takes less time and more learning material achieved. I will evaluate which teaching method is suitable for my student after the orientation session. An average music student will be able ...
With over 25 years experience teaching voice, including at the college level, I bring a wealth of experience to my students. I earned my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees in vocal performance, studied at the Tanglewood Institute, as well as with many other professional singers and acclaimed teachers. I have sung professionally with opera companies, symphonies and other presenting organizations. My students will learn vocal techniques that work and that will allow them to be the artists they want to be! I create a safe, supportive, and fun atmosphere for my students. I firmly believe that studying music should be enjoyable, and that high standards don't equal stuffy seriousness! *** Lesson Details *** My students start singing better immediately - learning the basics of breath ...

I offer Simply Music piano lessons in my studio. Simply Music focuses on the sheer pleasure of playing. The hands-on approach, and immediate results, dispels the notion that learning to play means enduring years of lessons, boring practice sessions and relentless hours of drills.
How is Simply Music different?
-The quantity of music learned
-The quality of music you immediately learn to play
-The speed of your progress
-The ease with which you experience the process
The Simply Music Method is based on the premise that everyone, without exception, is naturally musical. Traditional methods insist that beginners learn to read music as the means of learning to play. This removes the natural connection between student and instrument and commonly, removes all the fun, too. In fact, expecting children to read before they have learned to play is like expecting children to read and write before they have learned to talk.
In stark contrast, Simply Music temporarily delays ...
A native of West Seattle, Rian took his first piano lessons at the age of seven. His middle school music teacher recognized Rian’s musical talent and gave him his first public performance opportunity during the school’s annual musical. Rian would go on to play piano for the middle school productions for 3 more years. As Rian progressed into high school his talent increased as well. As a freshman in high school Rian successfully tried-out for the award winning JFK High School Jazz Band and soon took over as the primary pianist. While performing at a high school jazz band festival he was singularly awarded the “Best Rhythm Section” award, a prize usually given to a band’s entire rhythm section. Rian concluded his high school musical career with a trip to the Washington Music Educators ...
I've been playing piano for over a decade and I consider it one of my true passions in life. I can help students begin to read and understand sheet music, but my specialty is improvisation (which I believe is the basis of true mastery with any instrument).
Hope to see you soon!
