It stands out because I have had such a good education; one of my piano teachers, who I still go see from time to time when I want extra help for a performance was played on the radio in her country, as well as in Russia. Moreover, the Fred Fox School of music decided to pay for most of my tuition once I auditioned for them.
I enjoy it because by teaching people piano I am teaching them many of the great life lessons I have learned from being a pianist, such as the fact that hard work really pays off and expressing yourself is a wonderful way to live life. Moreover, I have the ability to help many people connect with their heritage and remember part of history from around the world.

First I like to find out how much the student already knows, then I try to give the student pieces to work on that will be both enjoyable to them as well as grow them musically. For those who want to take piano even farther, I can give the student lessons in dictation, and music theory that is more advanced.
I am currently a Freshman at the University of Arizona studying under Dr. Woods. Before I came to the U of A though, I studied with a local woman who is a U of A alumnus, and then I studied under an Armenian woman who has her doctorate and studied in one of the great Russian conservatories. (The latter teacher is famous back in her country, and has two daughters who are also famous pianists).
For 30 minute lessons I charge $15 ($20 if I do the commuting)
For 45 minute lessons I charge $20 ($25 if I do the commuting)
I do not like to have lessons that go longer since students tend to do better with lessons that are 45 minutes or shorter. I also charge extra for commuting, although this could be negotiable.
