Call for an appointment.
My job as a piano teacher is to encourage, motivate and lead students to new paths of discovery. I am not only a piano teacher I am a guide to assist students in finding their ability to focus, grow their intelligence, and quality of life. The student learns how to excel in piano playing as well as other areas of academia and life learning lessons.
When I teach music theory I not only teach the student how it applies to paper but to their instrument. Musicians convey a story by playing the musical composition. Students learn to tell the story through music instead of words. Music theory is the language used to formulate the story. It's not just sound the composition formulates a story.
Students will build a toolbox and the knowledge needed to tell the story by developing technique, establish a steady rhythm and artistry.
Love Kids, Love Music, lets have fun while building a knowledge base in the piano as your instrument. I'm here to guide you so you can grow into what is best for you! I teach notation, rhythm, technique, ear training, theory and listen carefully to the student so I can be an effective guide. Every student is unique with different approaches toward learning. My focus is to guide and enrich the lives of young students toward obtaining a well-rounded appreciation for music.
