Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I always offer a free trial lesson before beginning in earnest with a new student because it's important for both of us to see if we're a good fit.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have a master's from Juilliard and a bachelor's from USC. I performed with Aretha Franklin, recorded with Panic! At the Disco, was the pianist on Glee (Season 5), and worked on both American Idol and The Voice. I've taught for 10 years and I recently joined the faculty at the Los Angeles College of Music.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
Tuition rates for piano lessons are $50 for each half hour. For children 8 and under I recommend 30 minutes and for adults I recommend a full hour.
How did you get started teaching?
I was one of six Morse Teaching Fellows at The Juilliard School in 2012. As part of my training I worked with Dr. Edward Bilous, a leading pedagogy expert, on refining my teaching technique through academic study and field work, by teaching for a full year in two New York City public school classrooms.
