I have 14 years of experience in classical piano and I absolutely love to teach music! When teaching piano, I strive to help my students obtain a solid understanding of the piano, and help them build skills in reading, performance, proper practice techniques, and musical techniques. I also introduce them to a wide variety of repertoire and implement ear training and theory into my lessons so they can become a well-rounded musician. My students are also able to apply what they have learned to their specific musical interests. I teach with a mixture of the Kodaly and Dalcroze methods, and I believe in engaging my students visually, auditorialy, and kinesthetically, so they can have the best learning experience possible!
From beginning to advanced, a student will learn how to manage their time for daily practice, and how to practice effectively and efficiently. All styles of music are taught; the sky is the limit. Sight reading, practice, performance, and technique are key foci of my teaching style.
I have a strong background in piano and have been playing since the age of 4. I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels!
