It is a privilege to guide an individual in their quest for musical learning. I believe in helping students progress at their pace. We set appropriate practice goals and assignments accordingly. If after a reasonable amount of effort the student finds a piece difficult, we set it aside to revisit it after other pieces. My goal is to motivate a student to feel passionate about music. When critiquing, I believe in positive compliments and gentle re-direction as needed. My ultimate satisfaction is to see a student accomplish a challenge that he/she choose!

My teaching experience began as a young adult teaching children of family and friends. I had the opportunity to make my dream of teaching a reality when I left the business world to study piano.  The last 15 years have been spent teaching at a conservatory, a college, private music academies, traveling to students' homes as well as a home studio.  I maintained an average studio of 35+ students that studied about 5+ years with me. I enjoy teaching all ages and levels, but my primary work is with children, beginners and adult leisure students.  I also have experience in pre-school groups. My job as a piano teacher is to teach the student how to practice at home. The goal is that any student should be able to pick up a piece of music and be able to play it on their own by using solid reading and rhythm skills, reinforced with written theory. I have a lot of experience preparing students for festivals and friendly competitions offered by local teacher associations. There is nothing more rewarding than watching students get excited, having fun and being motivated by their own success and progress!

I have a very good balance in my lessons of nurturing the student, but also pushing the student to his or her highest potential. I always remain encouraging and supportive. I want everyone to leave feeling good about themselves and I like to keep my lessons very open and warm. I will push you where you need to go, but I will always be on your side and will never make you feel bad about yourself in any way.

For beginning students, I usually start with The Rusian School of playing, book 1, combined with some easy traditional songs. When the student has progressed, I will begin to introduce classical repertoire. I'm always trying to choose the right compositions for my students, depending on their interests.

I do not use any textbooks or piano method books in my teaching. I am almost completely self taught, but have had success with my own methods of teaching piano. I have my own musical examples written out, which I can easily print or email for students. For beginners, I generally focus on basic technique and practice routine. Once the student has mastered some fundamentals (scales, chords, etc.), I introduce beginning level repetoire and start with basic sight-reading techniques. For intermediate and advanced students, I like to figure out what kind of popular music (rock, blues, jazz, pop) that they would like to play and learn more about, and then learn repetoire or basic techniques in that particular genre. Again, I specialize mainly in popular styles, and am not much of a classical player. My hope is to give intermediate and advanced classically trained students a good foundation in popular styles, and once the foundation is there, start working on repetoire. One of my specialites is arranging pop songs for solo piano performance, so that will also be a part of advanced lessons.

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.
