About this pro

My presence and my manner of teaching is by working with violin and piano students. My students look for trust in a teacher with no judgment and they seem to like that I find ways to help them get their instrument. In time, they get happy when they move on to advance programs, repetoite or high end festivals. 

The smile on their faces when I see they finally get the lesson. It is great to see their achievements.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Even though it is a same day booking, it really depends on the student. From experience, it takes 1-4 weeks to start. It's the time it takes for the student to gather all materials and schedule times.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music. I started with classical music when I was 8 years old. From that moment on, it was history. What made me a teacher is when I first started offering tutoring services at my university to get my colleagues to understand music theory, music history, piano, and violin. I noticed my peers were struggling, and I showed them how to make it easier for them to understand. I have been fortunate to work with joint program orchestras, community orchestras, and juvenile orchestras. I received scholarships for my music education and I thank ALL my teachers/instructors for my music advancement. I cannot thank them enough. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

Yes, I have travel, studio and remote prices. It varies on the student's location.


How did you get started teaching?

As mentioned previously, it really started with my music tutoring services at my university campus. 


What types of students have you worked with?

All kinds of students. 5-80 years old. My memorable student was the 80 year old man wanting to learn "Kumbayah" with his arthritis problem. He was not able to do chords however we worked it out with no problems at all. He was so estatic! I could really write a list however it would be too much to read. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Ask questions and communicate upfront.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Is this the time to start?
