Taking students who are beginners and advancing them to the level where they can perform the masters. In young children, I enjoy seeing how it affects their schoolwork, especially math. For more advanced students, I enjoy training them on technique development and musicianship. Helping my students develop stage presence and confidence through student recitals and competitions is quite gratifying to me. Enabling dedicated and talented students receive scholarships is also a benifit.

    I find myself constantly referring to the methods of technique and phrasing that you taught me, and I feel so blessed that I had such an incredible teacher like you to build my foundation.

    We feel very fortunate that our daughters were able to study at the Tinturin Music Studio. The Tinturins exemplify the best in music instruction and the highest form of professionalism. They are a rare find in any community.

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

For beginners, getting them familiar with the keyboard and how it relates to the lines and spaces on a piece of sheet music, another words sight reading. Teaching the value of notes in relation to timing, another words rhythm. Stressing the importance of feeling for the music or musicianship. Enabling new students to become productive as soon as possible thereby heightening their interest in the instrument. Making lessons an enjoyable experience for all those involved. 

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

Studied music/piano at Mt St Mary’s college under full scholarship. Studied Piano at Los Angeles Conservatory of Music, now California Institute of the Arts. Compeeted and won 37 national and international competitions in Piano performance. Studies under some of the great teachers of my time.

How did you get started teaching?

While in high school and performing and competing, I was being asked by many of my friends and families friends if I would give them lessons. Fifty years later I’m still teaching on a limited basis, and loving it!
