I like to teach my students how to reach their musical goals, whatever those may be. If they just want to strum a few chords, I will show them many different ways to do so, and in the context of their favorite songs. Everything I teach is within the context of their favorite music. I feel this keeps the lessons FUN. I try to bring out the creative side in all of my students. Depending on my students goals, I adjust my lessons accordingly to suit each individual student.

My teaching experience began in the Chicago public and private schools in the 1970's. Wanting to have the ability to work with a student on a one on one basis, I went into business for myself as a private teacher. From 1976 to 2010 I taught music in a music store that I co-owned in the Chicago area. During that same period I worked with several universities with the Methods of Private Instruction in the area of Music Education. Currently I work from a private studio in my home.

My beginning students start out by learning music theory.  We definitely have to establish and learn the fundamentals.  Once they begin to learn the piano, I throw in modern day music to keep them interested.  We start applying the concepts and theory into what they enjoy playing to continue to build the strong foundation.  With my advanced students, I work on advanced chord knowledge, theory, improvisation, and training of the ear.  I want all of my students to enjoy the piano, but my ultimate goal is for all my students to become excellent musicians.  Musicianship is the key.  I want them to be able to play with excellent time and rhythm, read music, and have ears where they can figure out how to play something by listening to it on the radio.  This will allow them to not only be great soloists, but to play in bands and ensembles.  My students learn how to play with a wide range of drum beats and bass parts to get them accustomed to playing with a group of other musicians.  Listening and collaborating with other musicians can help students learn and refine their skills.  The key is continuous learning and improvement.

My approach to teaching is very "person-centered"- in that I will adapt to the needs of the student. I do not have one stuanch approach in teaching music. I want to help students engage early on in "Music Experiences"- not just learning scales, but truly playing music with me, improvising, and enjoying themsevles. This sort of music work really formsm the bedrock of my music lesson and music therapy practice.

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.
