As a student at Boomerang Music, you'll get to learn piano on a 6ft Steinway Grand Piano! My lessons are fun, enagaging and all about getting you to play the music you want to play, whether that's a Beethoven Sonata or a Taylor Swift Pop Song!
Having studied piano for over 30 years, you'll get my unique expertise focusing on technic so you can play anything and culminating in a piece that you want to play. My background, having performed in Musicals Off-Broadway in New York City to composing music for opera, film and stage, ultimately positions me to give you a well-rounded view of piano, no matter which route you go with it! I also teach voice (opera, musical theatre, pop), focusing on healthy singing so that you can sing anything you want for your whole life.
Luke taught my son for a year while he was living in Las Vegas. Back then, he only had an upright piano, but I see he has a Steinway now and I wish I was living in the Napa area so my son could continue taking from him. Luke was incredibly patient and attentive, giving his full attention to the lesson. Miraculously, he was able to keep my son's attention (which is no small feat!). He's also really funny and kept my son giggling. While he does pay attention to the clock, sometimes he would go over a few minutes, because he wanted to teach "one last thing before you go." I really appreciated that because while he was cognizant of the time, he always wanted to give a little more where he could. Thanks Luke!
My process for working with a new student is introducing them to the piano, letting them explore it and find what interests them visually, while guiding them to learn about what makes a piano a piano. From there, we'll learn about how you interact with the piano to create music, building from there until you are comfortable playing it.
