    Hello everyone! My name is CJ. I have been playing since the age of 13 where my passion for music was exposed and expressed through keys. I play from a place of passion and I help students to find this same passion within themselves. Whether you have never played the piano or consider yourself an intermediate player, I will teach you the skills necessary to play through passion. Because I can teach students to learn from sheet music AND uncovering their "ear" for music, students leave each lesson with a sense of accomplishment and confidence in their potential.

    My teaching approach: Each student has their own way of learning. My experience as a teacher and player helps me determine the best way for each student to learn, resulting in the most progress in the least amount of time. I blend many methods to custom fit the needs and desires of each student. Students leave each lesson with a set of exercises to practice until the next lesson -- the amount of time the student dedicates at home is directly related to their progress. My influences are: Eric Clapton, Alex Lifeson, Jack Johnson, Tony Iommi, Jimi Hendrix, Bob Dylan, Joe Satriani, Trey Anastasio,
