I actually began teaching under my teacher when I was about 14 years of age. Since that time I've worked with young and old and done my best to give them the joys of music that everyone should have at some point. I've been very fortunate to have had a good number of students who have enjoyed great success with music as a profession. I try to impart my wisdom and experience to assist students in achieving their musical goals, whatever they may be.

My lessons are very structured, but within the structure is a lot of freedom.  An hour long lesson might look something like this:  First 10 min.: Warm-ups, discussion about posture, hand position and muscular/skeletal health while playing.   Next 10 min.: Performance of previous weeks assignments, with discussion about whether preparation was adequate, what was missed (usually dynamics and other articulations) and what could be done to improve.  Next 10 min.: Based half on performance and half on my own ideas, work on a number of techniques to strengthen the weaknesses the student is facing.  This could range from working on a particular scale to solidify thumb crossover, to working on the use of a pick on guitar. Next 10 min.: Discuss assignment for next week and choose songs that would be beneficial.  Assignment usually consists of 1 technical work, 1 musical work and 1 free choice.   Next 10 min.: Monitored practice time.  This a chance for me to see how the student is practicing when I'm not there and correcting mistakes before they can become habits.  Usually involves forcing student to use a metronome, teaching the student to slow down when a piece is too difficult a tempo, and making sure the student is addressing problem areas of a piece rather than starting at the beginning every time.  Last 10 min.: Improvisation.  This covers a broad range of subject matter.  It might involve me playing something like chords while the student improvises.  This is a chance for me to try and hear the student's natural musical voice.  I also use this opportunity to explain to more advanced students, which scales can go with which chords.  This includes pentatonic scales, blues scales and for the most advanced, different modal scales.   For a shorter lesson, usually these would be cut relatively.  For 30 minute lessons (which I don't recommend) certain steps get combined which gets the job done, but not in the most ideal manner.

With over 10 years of teaching experience, I am a professional and pssionate piano teacher who firmly believe in cultivating a civilized, well-rounded mind through music education. Besides my own private studio, I have also taught in numerous music schools including Kids' N Keyboard Music Center (CA), Cherry Kids' Children Center (CA), Northern California School of Music (CA), Perrysbury Music Center (OH), Ip Piano School (MA), and Mozart Academy of Music (MA). I have worked with countless students in any level, including students as young as 3, students as old as 60+, and students with special needs.  Under my flexible and unique way of teaching, my students acquire not only piano skills, but also critical thinking skills, analytic skills, independence, sensibility, and enthusiasm to express deep human emotions. Regarded as one of the most dedicated, creative, diligent, artistic, and knowledgeable pianists by many students' parents and college professors, I see teaching as not only a great pleasure and joy of my life, but also my responsibility - music is one of the most noble forms of communication, and it gives life such a layer of meaning that everyone deserves such opportunity to discover and explore in the realm of music. I could never cease to emphasize how thankful and grateful I am to be an educator and a musician.

For younger students, I believe in the importance of solidifying technique and understanding of the piano along with developing an excitement for music. With older students, I guide the lessons based on their interests. I believe strongly in the importance of ear training for students of all ages to provide a deeper understanding of the music.

I teach classical music exclusively. My strategy for utterly inexperienced students is to remove from the equation the difficulty of reading a music score, and just allow the hands to "learn" the keyboard by having the student repeating short musical sentences (either preexisting or improvised by me on the spot). Once familiarity with the keyboard has been achieved, or if the student already reads music, we move on to his or her first book, and I tend to favor Nancy and Randall Faber's Piano Adventures. Then, as the student's ability grows and confidence builds, we move on to Carl Czerny's short and easy Études and easy pieces by J. S. Bach and other composers.

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.
