My Primary instrument! I have been playing for 18 years. You will learn technique, performance, songs, reading, theory, and many skills to take with you for life.
I mainly focus on classical technique, can I can also include rock/pop and jazz if the student is interested
I have been teaching for over 10 years and work with all ages and skill levels. I cater my lessons to meet the individual goals and needs of the student and I strive to give students a strong musical foundation while nurturing their unique musical style and interests.
I believe that strong technique and basic musical knowledge are both important in creating well rounded musicians and am mindful to incorporate both technical skills and music theory into each of my lessons.
I have been playing piano since the age of six. Originally classically trained, I made a change to learning Jazz after hearing it on the radio one night while still in high school.
I began my teaching career in 2007, providing private piano instruction to beginners at a small, privately owned music school in Laurel, Maryland.
After the school closed it's doors in the Fall of 2011, I continued working with many of the students privately. It is these efforts I continue to this day.
Having the opportunity to work 1 on 1 with students and see their progression and development on a week to week basis is a truly, rewarding experience that I feel fortunate to be a part of.
