My method is to incorporate proper technique and fingering, and though reading music is important, i also put emphasis on hearing what your playing and also understanding it theoretically.  This way students will be well-rounded and be able to understand what they are playing from an audio and theoretical stance, rather than just being told what to play by the notes on the sheet music.  What this does is it allows the student to become independent so that they don't have to rely on music and a teacher to be able to play or pick-up songs they desire to play.  I want them to be able to ultimately teach themselves and understand music in a way that they can apply it to any style or song in the future.

My greastest reward is seeing each student develop a greater love of music as they progress and come to be able to express their personal feelings through music.  It is important that each student progress at his or her own pace.  I encourage this by setting realistic goals at each lesson.  By acknowledging their accomplishments this helps build a desire to progress and makes students eager to learn more.  By helping them learn how to use the hand, wrist, arm and upper torso, they learn  tone control and musical phrasing.  I encourage relaxation and proper breathing so the student has a good foundation to meet the technical challenges.  Together we learn the structure, harmonic movement, phrasing, the language of music, rather than just reading notes.  For Beginning Students I usually use the Alfred Series of music books.  However, I taylor the studies to the students needs and music goals.

I always start trying to find what inspires the students so we can move from there. I believe every student is different and we need to set realistic goals for each lesson. I think every lesson should include techniques, a piece to perform and concepts to grasp. Those three are the main components of my teaching style.

Since my teaching philosophy is that every piano lesson should be fun,  I tailor each lesson according to the student's age and interests.  For young beginners, I choose method books that contain fun songs.  I also teach music theory through story telling.  For older students, I tailor each lesson according to their interests.   My goal is that all my students enjoy music for the rest of their lives.

My first taste of teaching came in middle school, when my orchestra director asked me to teach the class a new technique (left hand pizzicato). I've never looked back, and now have over 10 years of experience teaching in both individual and group settings. In high school, I led group rehearsals and taught individual lessons to string players. By college, I knew teaching would play a significant role in my life, so I chose to focus on education during my undergraduate studies. I gained valuable experience leading ensembles, teaching in elementary and middle school classrooms, and expanding my instrumental knowledge and teaching ability. I am proud to offer quality instruction in the San Francisco Bay Area.

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.
