I've been playing the piano since I was 11 years old. I attended a music camp as a child and began getting frustrated as I was learning how to read music. I couldn't figure out how to read the music while playing, so I began playing by ear.  As I became older I still wanted to learn how to read music so I began teaching myself.  I discovered SightReading and immediately started to enjoy reading music again.   Later I started "Music 4 The Future" because I wanted to teach others how I learned how to read and play music so quickly.  I believe "Lessons + Fun = Success 4 Everyone." www.m4tfpianolessons.com ...

My teaching approach: I teach popular styles except classical, hiphop, ethnic and flamenco. Guitar playing is FUN. My teaching style is to find songs you want to play, and inject necessary concepts into the process of learning it. Includes music theory and technique. I use ear training, chord diagrams, tab, even standard notation. Bring songs or use my library. My background is in bands, in living rooms, and in the studio. So I can teach you to play by yourself, with others or in bands. My influences are: The British Invasion and folkies got me going in the last 60's - but I've been in bands since then, learning whatever was popular in each d ... View Profile

People want to play piano for many different reasons; there as many different goals and dreams as there are piano students. Some learn to play piano for their own personal enjoyment and enrichment, aspiring only to play ... View Profile

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. ...

I am an active chamber and orchestral player, and have been a principal player in many orchestras, as well as member of non-classical groups in folk, rock, and other styles. I improvise and encourage students to develop abilities for playing by ear, improvising, or composing.  I feel strongly that a good understanding of music is essential for good performance of any kind of music. ...
