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!

I'm very good at figuring out where the student is singing from, and then guiding the voice to a better space for resonance, tone, health, etc as needed. I also help students make the leap from one level - singing with a good technique - to the next level of making music. For me, it's about what's right for my students, and whatever pace is right for them. With violin students, I'm really good at helping them master challenging techniques.  ... View Profile

Mina's Piano School Of Music

Mina's Piano School Of Music

No matter how far your children will ultimately take their musical experience, my 35 years of experience in piano teaching has taught me, that a child's discovery of 'the sound of music' in themselves is the real purpose of a musical education. The process of developing this internal capacity can be one of the first experiences of something that is truly their own and serves as a foundation for self confidence and a measure for their own self evaluation. Member of MTAC, preparations to CM exams, competitions and annual concerts. Emphasis on reading musical notation, learning to deal with the full range of rhythmical patterns and musical style ...

I teach students of all ages and levels, and all musician genres. I believe that in order to play any kind of repertoire (whether it be baroque, classical, romantic, or pop), you first need to understand and work on the fundamental principles of piano technique; body movement/rhythm, basic music theory understanding, and making good sound (touch and articulation). Studying and performing music has been such an integral part of my life, and I have a lot ... View Profile
