My biggest satisfaction when I teach is seeing my students getting better and maintaining their interest, passion, and desire. Once in a while I like to push them or tell them to push themselves, find new challenges, and dare a little more. New challenges bring new goals, and new goals make them keep their eagerness to learn. Since my key point is "be open-minded", I always try to make their interest and needs parallel with my instructions.

I use a variety of books, recordings, and online resources for all levels- transcriptions of classic styles and newer artists , scale and chord reference books, solo pieces for different genres, beginning guitar methods by traditional publishers such as Hal Leonard and Warner Bros. plus newer books. Online video and audio content and recording software such as garageband are also valuable resources to work with. Learning to read and write music opens up great potential for communication and creativity- theory and improvisation are other topics that I like to teach. I have lots of experience designing individual lesson plans and materials - using recordings and written music that the student has a specific interest in. I've transcribed thousands of songs, riffs, solos, and other musical passages for students to help create customized lessons and meaningful material that's fun and challenging

For beginning students, I use the Piano Adventure Series by Nancy Faber and Randall Faber.  I also use the A Thousand Stories for a Little Pianist by Katrin Arefy. My special methods in teaching young students include stories, easy duets, and singing familiar folk songs. For intermediate level students, I use different method books according to the student's interests. However, I encourage them to play Classical music, which is very useful in developing good techniques in piano playing. I also encourage students to pick their own music.  The most important goal is that students are learning music from different time periods, and is having fun.

 I have been teaching Guitar/Music Theory for almost 20 years.  I have a Certificate of Music Industry Studies from the Diablo Valley College, which was completed in 2014. As for now, I'm a music/composition major at the Diablo Valley College, transferring from a 2 year college to get my bachelor degree. Besides composing for my band, I write orchestrated instrumental music from classical to soundtracks, etc. I believe that each student require a different approach, depending on their level. For example: if they want to be a professional musician, or if they just want to learn music as a hobby.  I also believe that music should be fun, no matter the path the student want to follow. And it is my responsibility to find a way to inspire my students.

Constructing good habits is key. So very much of every instrument is muscle memory, which means developing good habits or weeding out bad ones is extremely important. I customize my lesson plan for each student in order to maximize the learning curve and to keep things interesting. If the student is a beginner, I make sure to show them a (not the) correct way to approach a goal and keep focus. If the student is further along, I evaluate and monitor their progress to ensure proficiency. Most importantly, I make sure they are having FUN!

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
