My teaching includes all of the foundational aspects of receiving a full understanding of music and the myriad ways of learning to play the piano. Lessons include theory, technique and repertoire (your choice).
I fell in love with the piano as a child and knew by the time I was 12 that I wanted to pursue a career as a professional pianist. Playing the piano is an absolutely essential part of who I am. Not only do I love performing, but love to hear all of the great pianists. It is a way of life that is both challenging and fulfilling.

For a student who is new to playing the piano, we start with the most basic essentials. This is to secure a strong foundation and an easy way to just get started.
For a student who has studied previously, the student plays a piece of their choice, so that I can see where their understanding of knowing music is and how they approach playing. This allows me the opportunity to make recommendations that they will appreciate.
I have a degree in Piano Performance from Southern Methodist University. I was very involved in the outstanding piano pedagogy dept. as well. As an instructor, I have been teaching since age 16 and as a performer from the age of 9. I bring a love of playing and a thorough understanding of how to get there.

I was asked by local community college to teach a class piano course at the age of 16
All ages, all levels, all abilities, all kinds of personalities
I perform frequently and am fond of all of them.
First of all, you must really want to learn to play!! Without this, there is no point.
Find out if the teacher you want to study with you loves playing the piano and also love to share that love and knowledge
It is helpful if the students is aware of their physical abilities if at all possible. Things they are good at like math, spelling, etc.
