Musical Background My goal as a piano teacher is to help every student understand and learn to appreciate the language of Music. Every student is unique and therefore receives a personalized piano education. No two student learn exactly the same way at precisely the same speed! Therefore treating students as individuals is very important to me. With time students will discover what music means to them personally. The impact and influence of music on people is precious in many different ways. Piano lessons are a lifetime investment and its rewards and benefits will help enrich your life. I am a classically trained pianist from Germany, where I acquired a Piano Teaching Certification. Thanks to my wonderful piano teacher who was both a concert pianists and college-level music professor ...
I've been teaching piano now for 15 years. My goal is for the student to learn to play by feel in addition to reading music. A standard lesson would consist of some playing in books and going over some music theory followed by playing by feel. This would include blues,jazz, and rock grooves. My approach is creative and customized to the prospective student. The student needs to enjoy learning the piano. A happy student is a successful one.
I am a musician who has played in many bands. My primary instrument is piano and voice. I also play rhythm guitar. My current group is a "Who" tribute band, performing a complete history of the rock group, The Who. Please check out our website magicbustour.com I play by ear but also read music. If you are looking for an old school, rigid, teacher who only has students only follow books, then you should look elsewhere. If you want to be able to play or sing with feel and learn music theory with some reading in a comfortable working studio then contact me. *** Studio Equipment *** -Petrof upright piano - Mackie PA system - Guild F15 acoustic guitar *** Travel Equipment *** -Roland Midi 2 - Guild F-15 acoustic guitar *** Specialties *** Patient, creative, flexible and fun.

I can teach anything lower than the Royal Conservatory of Toronto's grade rating of 7 (much harder than most piano method book grade levels) without any preparation and have played a handful of diploma level pieces in the "classical" idiom, which are considered the hardest difficulty pieces.
In the jazz idiom, I know many of the exercises of Charlie Banacos as well as an Abersold method. I have studied jazz extensively throughout most of my life and my main influences are Bill Evans, Chick Corea, Chet Baker, and Miles Davis.
I studied jazz performance & classical music at USM and studied jazz piano with Charlie Banacos. I have been teaching since I was 15 years old through the state's Gifted program and qualified for both gifted in fine arts as well as the general IQ requirement. I currently have students ranging from the age of 4 to 78 years old, most of which are in the range of 6-17 years old.
