Al Krever, Training In The Arts
I teach both Classical Piano and Aikido. Classical piano, my first love, has been a life long study, 60 years at the keyboard at last count. If you're a beginner, starting off well is most important and if you're advanced, I can help you refine your skills or prepare you for performance or competitions.
As an Aikido practitioner, I have studied continuously since 1974. It's a great practice for folks from 13 years and older. (I'm in my late 60s and still going). Aikido is an extremely active but not violent martial art, suitable for both men and women. I have my own dojo associated with Arizona Budokan and teach both regular classes and private lessons.
