I grew up in Southern CA and played piano all my life beginning with classical studies at age 6. I moved to the east coast and obtained my music degree from NYU in 1995 and began teaching in Greenwich Village NYC in 1999. All the while I taught I continued to take lessons from some of the world's greatest musicians living in NYC. I was classically trained, but ventured into jazz and pop studies after college. I played many jazz solo gigs in New York City as well as accompanied singers, performed and sang my own material at songwriter venues, accompanied rock bands on keyboards and performed classical music in the recital galas I hosted for my students. I've played and taught all styles and have a passion for teaching and learning! I encourage students to play what they love, ...
I have over 20 years of piano experience. I was trained via the Suzuki method, but I prefer to use my own method with my students. I mostly play dark classical (Rachmoninoff meets Muse) and anything current I hear on the radio that gets stuck in my head (Popular Music).
I encourage my students to learn music theory and sight reading, but I respect that everyone has different motivations for learning piano. If your goal is to play the songs you hear on the radio by ear, I will teach you how to do that without wasting your time with sight reading.

Berklee College of Music graduate from Boston, MA with a passion for all genres, though mainly popular music. For me, music has always been about having fun and doing what feels natural, and I try to pass this on to my students. In all seriousness, if it's not fun, why do it? I'm super laid back, but I refuse to let you spend your money, or someone else's, on lessons like it's going out of style. I believe that the more fun you have with music, the more you'll want to play, and as a result, the better a musician you will become. *** Lesson Details *** Together, we will create daily, weekly, and monthly goals for you to achieve.

Adrián : Born on October 17, 1975, and raised in Chihuahua, Chihuahua, México, Adrian T. grew up surrounded by the traditional music of Central America from Danzón, Boleros and Rumba, to Son and Mambo.
