I am a pianist, vocalist, and composer who originally hails from Washington, D.C. I have been teaching and performing for over 10 years and I continue to seek out new and exciting musical opportunites. Versed in a variety of styles: jazz, classical, blues, rock, funk, and gospel, I have performed in venues up and down the Eastern seaboard, in Texas and Colorado.
I have been teaching for over a decade and for Musika for 6 years. I have worked with students of all ages, skill levels and backgrounds. Teaching is my passion; I work with each student to reach his/her individual goals.
A large variety of methods including: Hal Leonard Faber Suzuki Music For Little Mozarts Each lesson plan is catered to the indivdual. The materials I use depends on what each student desires to learn. I also incorporate supplementary resources to address a vareity of learning styles.
Piano can be fun and rewarding for a person of any age! The best age to begin piano lessons is 6 years old, but I also love working with children between the ages of 3 and 5. With beginners, I focus on planting a strong musical foundation that they can build on for years to come. For those further along in their musical journey, I strive to cater to a student's specific musical needs whether they be improvement in notation reading, technique, interpretation, ear-training, theory, improvisation, or embracing new styles. Mostly, I want my students to have fun learning everything they can about music.
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.
