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.

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.

I started teaching piano while in college.  The spectrum of my students was varied from their ages to their experience.  I found that I could make a greater impact on the progress of my students not only by incorporating organized lesson plans, but also by creating a fun and nurturing environment.  My success in motivating and teaching my students was based on making learning fun.  I never forget about the importance of music theory, but I also understand each student is unique.  I design my lesson plans around the individual and their likes, and always incorporate the music theory in my lesson plans.

I normally create a lesson plan that developes the student skills yet keep them interested in wanting to learn more about music not just a whole lot of theroy. I also believe, the best way is hands on work. (Practical learning)

I like to get to know the student as I am teaching so I create small breaks to get to know who I am teachign and their interest, so that I may taylor my lessons to the student. For beginning students I like to use essential elements books as a guide for their practice. For adults I try to find out their long term goals and taylor my lessons to gettimng them to reach that goal.

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.
