I have been teaching piano for more than 25 years and my students have been prize winners in local competitions and festivals as performers and composers.  Former students have gone on to attend universities such as Cornell, Columbia, Brown and other well known colleges.  I am an experienced church organist and accompanist for vocal and instrumental soloists as well as choirs. I am an experienced  chamber musician and am the founder and pianist  of the Papillons Piano Trio which performs locally.

I use several levels of method books that may encompass technical concepts (Moyse), orchestral studies (J. Donjon), Selected Duets, Solo works, Aebersold Jazz Studies and custom lesson plans that I create according to the performance level of the student. It is important to be creative in implementing the different levels of cognition to help students effectively retain and use new information. With regards to technical development I encourage all students to practice slowly for accuracy and muscle memory.

My methods of teaching for students are if the student is starting with a school I would work with the book that the director wants them to work with. If they are coming to me for to learn I would use Essential Elements for Band and then move on to other music or books. For any adults that I would have I would use Essential Elements for Band and the I would move on to what they want to learn.

Teaching style could easily be summaried and paraphrased with my above stated pedagogy! Teaching style changes from student to teacher. I enjoy trying to decipher what the student enjoys hearing, wants to learn, prior knowledge, and desires are. These help in my search to find the perfect style at which the student understands and enjoys the task at hand.

One of my first priorities in teaching my students is the emotional and intellectual connection and the discovery of their personal music favorites and match them in accordance with their interest, age, and level. for the beginner student(children), I usually use the "Axford Guitar Method”, which is one of the most progressive and easy-to-understand methods. It teaches them all the basics of classical guitar technique, with fun arrangements of popular songs that the children are interested in.  As for the beginner (adults), I suggest “Christopher Parkening Method” which is a great beginners method book. One’s this is accomplished we step up to the “Carolli Method” which is the best method for the lower intermediate students. The Complete “Carcassi Guitar Method” is a wonderful reference book for intermediate level guitarists as well. “Aguado” has many fantastic ideas about playing techniques which I have worked with my of my more experienced students. As for experienced individuals, “Pumping Nylon by Scott Tenant” Is a progressive method book for players who wish to further develop their guitar technique, which I suggest to all my experiences students. Last but not least, my students have always the opportunity to play several famous pieces chosen in accordance to their age, technics and personal preferences.

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.
