Experience of working with children and adults
Flexible hours, competitive rates
I dedicated and disciplined in order to help the student build effective practice habits, coatch them on exellent technique, analyze the music and plan successful lessons. But they should also be friendly, smile, play games, make jokes, and be silly!Too much of one or the other isn't as effective. All fun and no work won't get you anywhere and all work and no play just isn't enjoyable!!

yes, I do standardized pricing system.
How did you get started teaching?
My teaching experience dates back to my college days,as I began teaching private lessons part time, and have been consistently teaching students in my home studio.
Encouraging regular practice on a consistent schedule is one of the key points I like to emphasize for younger students, as it tends to help the student progress and gain a passion for the instrument. I've also found that the combination of clasdical and modern music can go a long way in helping students enjoy the piano and motivate them to practice and continue to learn. If a student isn't having fun in their lessons, then I'm not doing my job!
My students are encouraged to enter competitions as well as work on composing their own original material, so they can feel good about their accomplishment and stay motivated to learn. I'm always looking to bring on new students of all ages!!
What types of students have you worked with?
I teach all ages , styles and levels.
Foe beginners students who are children, I typically start with Faber Essential Elements. Once the student has progressed to have a grasp of the fundamentals, I will begin to introduce solo repertoire appropriate for their first recital performance. For adults, I try to find out what the student is interested in, and guide my instructions accordingly Yo keep the lessons engaging and fun , no matter theirs ability level.
