My lessons are about technique and applying the technique to repertoire. I spend about a third of the lesson on specific technique work and I always encourage students to bring in their own material that we can work on as well. I of course always have songs to suggest and I cater to each individual student's needs. If you need a high song, I'll find a high one. If you need a pop song, I'll find a pop song. You will get excellent vocal and piano technique from me, but you will also learn to have fun and appreciate the ease and relaxation of singing and playing piano.

I have been teaching piano lessons for over a decade.  I have held private studios in Seattle, WA, Wheaton, IL, Bloomington, IN, and now in the Torrance, CA area as well as taught group lessons, taught at the YaGe Community Arts School in Kunming, China, and taught at the Joe Ferrante Music Academy in Monrovia.  I have extensive experience teaching the full gamut of the classical repertoire, traditional and contemporary jazz, pop, R&B, and rock.  I also do transcriptions and arrangements of pieces if my students want to learn a piece for which there is no sheet music.  I also teach improvisation, music theory, and composition.  Whatever excites my students, challenges them, and helps them be their most musical is what I focus on.

Finding success and building from a student's natural gifts is where I look for results. I relish in seeing students succeed and find ways to use that win to build confidence in their abilities. With younger or more beginning level students I concentrate our efforts on the fundamentals and exercises to better build their dexterity. I will give specific instruction on what should be worked on in the student's own practicing and set goals for them to accomplish. For repertoire choices I like the student to bring something that they are passionate about, and will incorporate the music that inspires them with choices to help improve their skills.

Philosophy on Music- There is imitation and creation, but to truly create one must first learn the established forms before one can break them.   Eventually through discipline to these forms, one will see these forms not as absolutes governors, but instead a variety of tools that aid us in our artistic expression and enjoyment.   Philosophy as an Educator- To be an effective educator I believe that one must not only create a curriculum and pay attention to the individual needs of their students, but one must also provide an environment that fosters growth.   That is why I am a firm believer in being extremely kind, providing positive feedback and maintaining a safe environment.

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.
