About this pro

I'm certified and specialized in online piano tutoring. I have taught piano to a variety of young students, kids and adults over the past 10 years. I have learned to be flexible and varied with my teaching style based on each individuals need and their musical interests. It has given me experience in developing a love for music in their lives in a fun and comfortable enviroment while also solidifying musicality that will serve in all their musical endeavors. I've also won several piano awards/competitions. I'm very patient, caring and loving teacher.

I love helping my student's learn and develop a special love for music. My goal is to help students achieve the necessary skills to become self-reliant, confident and creative through body consciousness and sound awareness in order to become good musicians.

I want my students to enjoy the music they are playing, so it is important to me that I get to know their taste as well as their style. I love watching students learning and making music their own. I love to be part of the progress they make!
