For beginning students, I typically start with Piano Adventures.  Advanced beginners usually have other excellent methods such as Bastien, Schuam, or Alfred, and I use any method which is acceptable.  Adults, or more advanced students, usually have a particular interest in a certain style of music or keyboard skill which I help cultivate.  Though nothing matches the sound, subtlety and feel of an acoustic - the essence of the art of the classical tradition - I encourage students to use MIDI-aided learning tools to develop their sight-reading skills.  Students may use either a weighted-action digital pkeyboard/piano or an acoustic piano for home practice.

I have been teaching for the past 10 years in Singapore and the US. In Charleston, SC, I was faculty at the Charleston Academy of Music for almost 6 years. My students range from age 3 to adults, and have won local and state competitions. In 2010 I formed a piano duo, and have since been invited as guest faculty in the Chicago Duo Piano Festival and Charleston Music Teachers' Association. I have performed in Asia, Europe and in the United States and have met many internationally acclaimed pianists and pedagogues, and I bring with me the experiences I have amassed over the years.

I love to teach piano. It's the best job in the world. I use my iPad to engage with the younger students (there are lots of great teaching apps out there), while making sure they know all the basics. My goal is to create independent learners, giving them the skills to figure out music all on their own for the rest of their lives. I'm working on yet another degree in music, this time in piano performance. I've been playing since I was 4, but feel I owe it to my students to become a better pianist and, hopefully, an even better teacher. Professionally, I'm Vice President of Programming for the Summit County chapter of the Ohio Music Teacher's Association. My students can participate in any MTNA and OMTA event.

Instruments:

I have a great passion for music, which I enjoy sharing with others through teaching, performing, composing, and recording. I have played in many different types of ensembles including marching, concert, pep bands, orchestras, pit orchestras, percussion ensembles, drum corps, rock, heavy metal, and country bands, as well as steel drum bands. I graduated from the University of Akron with a Bachelor or Arts in Music. In 2007, I received my Masters in Music Composition from Cleveland State University. I teach out of the Haddonfield Center and School for the Performing Arts or I can travel to your house.

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. In 2016, I graduated from Cleveland Institute of Music with a Artist Diploma degree in Piano Performance. Performing all over the world has been one of the greatest experiences of my life as a musician, and I've had the opportunity to play both at the Cleveland Severance Hall and Carnegie Hall in New York, as well as touring China, Japan, Australia, Ireland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain, Switzerland and Israel as several performances as the principle pianist with major orchestras.

Singing Scales: 4 Scales Every Singer Should Know

...four of the scales most often used by singers below, all of which begin on Middle C so that the scales can easily compare to each other. Each scale increases in difficulty from the last—begin with major scales and advance onto the next as each scale becomes comfortable and has been sung throughout the vocal range.   Major Scales C4 – D4 – E4 – F4 – G4 – A4 – B4 – C5 (Do – Re – Mi – Fa – Sol – La – Ti – Do)   Major scales are by far the most familiar scale structure...

Mixing Basics: Intro to Audio Mixing

...cymbals or any instrument with a long, fading resonance   Reverb is used to make a track sound natural, as if it is taking place in a larger space rather than a small recording room. It is a random and compounded echoing sound—you might notice its natural occurrence when speaking in a large empty room. When a track does not have reverb added to it, it is referred to as dry, and often a dry track will sound unnatural and empty. The easiest way to work with reverb, as a beginner, is to use the presets available on a digital reverb program. ... Read More

How To Write a Pop Song

...song as a whole.   Other Sections   Verses and choruses are a Pop song’s staple sections, but they’re by no means the only sections. When learning how to write a pop song, intros, endings, bridges, and instrumental sections should be studied as well. They are powerful songwriting tools that can add valuable character, momentum, and direction to the music you’re writing. A thoughtfully-constructed intro is your way to set the tone of your song by introducing instruments, suggesting a tonality, and constructing a mood. The intro is your chance to define a mood that will carry through your song or hint at ... Read More

The Kodály Approach – More than Hand Signs

...in a circle? That is really tricky. Not only are students learning about self-space and shared-space, they have to think about what direction to move in, which is the opposite of those directly across the circle. Add to that the singing (of those three fundamental pitches we highlighted earlier), walking to a steady beat with the correct spacing so they don’t run into anyone, and hearing the final motive and home note when it’s time to “all fall down.” That’s a lot of stuff in a little nursery rhyme! The moral of the story: even if students are “unsuccessful” during ... Read More

The Best Age to Start Trumpet Lessons

...Any parent considering trumpet lessons for their child needs to know the best age to start trumpet lessons before searching for a teacher. Our recommended starting age for the trumpet is eight. Many school music programs will start students out on trumpet in the third or fourth grade. You don’t want to start a student out too young because the trumpet requires a high amount of lung capacity as well as physical strength with the muscles around the mouth in order to produce a clear and consistent sound. While a student younger than the age of 8 could possibly be physically able to play the instrument, it will be more difficult for them to work on their embouchure, and harder for them to provide good ...

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.
