About this pro

Been teaching piano lessons since age 16, I am almost 35 years old.

I have a National Award from the Piano Guild of the U.S., and I received that at the age of 16. Immediately, I started teaching piano lessons.

I received our high school music scholarship award in 2001.  I also have an AA degree from the College of the Canyons for Music Composition.

I now reside in Long Beach/Lakewood in California.

I enjoy seeing good outcomes in the goals of my students.  I am there to help them succeed.  

My forte is to read music.  I love the success I see in my students that know how to not only read, but express themselves in piano/voice.

I am classically trained, and although I have an AA in Music Composition, my strength is on performance.

I want to see my students succed in their goals.  I think that is the best feeling as a piano/music teacher.

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

I charge $80 a month before the month starts.  Nothing more, nothing less per month.

The lessons, depending on the age or level, we will work on the goals and what you want to work on.  Still $80.

If you want to take advantage of the 5 weeks in a month, I still charge you $80.

No make-up lessons; we will just move forward.  If you miss 1,2, or 3 weeks in a month, I wil still charge you $80.

I charge $3 per mile for in-home lessons, going to you and going back home to where I live.
