Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced I taught piano for years looking for a method that was comprehensive, engaging, creative and practical, I make learning easy, even to the point where you don't have to do too much sight reading and be able to learn a favorite song you here on the radio within 30 mins. Your musical goals are my number one concern by providing you with a solid foundation in which to grow in any direction of your choosing.

As we go on, we will also incorporate ear training and more complex pieces, selected based on your personal goals. I can't wait to start this journey with you!

METHODS USED

In piano lessons, I'll provide highly valuable instruction and guidance on the key aspects of playing the piano: interpreting a piece of music accurately and with artistic expressiveness, improving technical ability, learning methods for efficient fingering and effective pedaling technique, developing greater control over emphasis, dynamics, and timing, and even strategies for physically improving and safely caring for your hands, fingers, and forearms. If you are a beginner and aren't sure what all those things mean or if they would apply to you, that's fine too. I also offer introductory instruction on how to read music and get started playing the piano I also offer lessons in a variety of musical topics: composition, songwriting, improvisation, ear training, music theory, arranging, and music production (technology) and voice. My variety of styles ranging from classical to jazz to electronic. He has experience writing music.
