Overview:
I have spent my entire adult life as a working musician. I came to teaching after a lengthy career as a performer & recording artist. I am very well versed in jazz, pop and R&B and bring an extraordinary amount of knowledge to the table. My background is quite eclectic and includes a thorough grounding in classical piano literature as well. As a performer first, I bring knowledge (and shortcuts) that most teachers do not. Music has been good to me and I feel an obligation to pass it on to others. Most importantly, I can impart the information effectively to children as well as adults. Don't Just Listen to Music… Play It!  
EXPERIENCE
My experience is very broad.
METHODS USED
My methods are very indiviualized and definitely outside the box. I frequently write material directly for the student (rather than use method books) It has been demonstrated to be very effective.    
LESSON STYLE
There are three acceptable answers to me: 1) The correct answer. 2) I don't know. 3) I don't remember. We keep going until 1 is the response.

No credit card required.

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.

Ok

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
