With nearly a decade of teaching experience, I am passionate about music and instilling a love of music in all my students. I have a Master's degree in Collaborative Piano Performance from the University of Colorado and a Bachelor's degree in Piano Performance from New York University. Through my years of experience as a professional musician, I have a developed a familiarity with many different styles of music -- from Classical to Jazz to Pop. I am confident I can tailor lessons to suit any student, at any age or ability level!
I love the individuality of all my students -- getting to teach one-on-one lessons helps me address the unique needs of each student while still drawing on general teaching techniques and methodologies I have developed over years of experience.
Though I am new to Lessons.com, please feel to check some reviews of my teaching here: https://www.thumbtack.com/ca/sacramento/piano-lessons-for-kids/sam-bachelder/service/396897272748466179?project_pk=406594767796486146
I have only had a couple of lessons so far, but Sam has been great to work with. He is extremely knowledgeable and provides lots of helpful tips. I am at an intermediate piano level and I highly recommend him as a teacher.
I like to quickly get a sense of each individual goals and keep my teaching oriented around those — in other words, never losing sight of what initially inspired you to learn piano in the first place.
I have two degrees in music — both a Bachelor’s and Master’s.
