My teaching approach: When I started taking lessons at the age of 9, my teachers only wanted to teach me songs and music that THEY liked and I almost quit because of it. As a result, I am dedicated to teaching my students the music that THEY love and I use that music to help them understand the fundamentals of music theory and guitar technique. My belief is that music has to be fun as well as educational. I am currently offering online lessons only. You can learn from the comfort of your own home with one-on-one live video lessons!

Students can take lessons on a primary instrument (drums, vibraphone, marimba, or general percussion) but all can learn about ear training, and musicianship.  Most drum teachers don't also teach mallet percussion.  I am an active performing musician, and share my tips and experiences from the real world as an experienced musician. I hold a Bachelor's of Music in Jazz Studies from the California Jazz Conservatory in Berkeley. I won first place in the "Jazz Search West" soloist competition in 2014.

My philosophy of teaching piano and music is an integrated, individualistic approach. My responsibility as a teacher is to tap into the enthusiasm of the student - what excites them and captivates them about music and nurture that curiosity. While covering the spectrum of theory, technique, and depth of sounds - it is also important to keep it fresh with innovative approaches to learning different concepts and I achieve this using many different ways honed over the years. 'Practice' has become a loaded word with learning music and I encourage individuals to be self-motivated from their own desire to learn and reap the benefits of what 'practi ... View Profile
