I began teaching professionally in the Bay Area about 30 years ago. I have taught in a variety of settings includings classes, group lessons, in music stores, for school districts, at students' homes and in my own private studio. Every person learns differently and I am highly skilled at detecting this and using it to my students' advantage. My recitals not only present individual pieces, but also group works that encourage working together with other musicians which is a highly rewarding benefit of music.

I have been teaching, honestly since I could pick up a guitar at 13; always kinda had a love and nack for the guitar. Officially been teaching since 2012. I have taught a wide array of people ranging from a 12 year old boy to play BEAUTIFUL classical guitar to a young mother/homemaker just trying to fill her house with the music of her hands. Recently, late January of 2016 to be precise, I hosted a little jam session in my home.. that kind of turned into a little musicians' workshop. I am always looking for fellow seasoned musicians and plain ol' lovers of music with whom to share and exchange knowledge rhythm and melody.

My teaching style is improvisational in nature.  I focus on creative compositions.  In contrast, I present traditional music and learning.  I juxtapose the two into a new style of teaching.  I mix the old with the new, and thereby create my own style.  Much as in the fashion of Bruce Lee's Jeet Kune Do with my intention on music education.

Ways to Improve Piano Sight Reading

...This allows them to process music in larger chunks, to be mentally free, relaxed, and to play confidently.   In closing, remember to keep assessing your piano sight reading growth using the SASR.
