I can teach all skill levels and ages. Lessons are tailored to the student's ability and proficiency. Lessons consist of material selected to improve music sight reading and the student's favorite performance pieces to work on. I teach in any style, i.e. Classical, Jazz, Contemporary, Country, etc.
I teach using zoom.com, texting and the phone during the covid19. I have been teaching since 2014.
I studied classical piano playing for 13 years with graduates of Moscow University and Yale University. I won a piano scholarship for college and participated in the University of Massachusetts Jazz Workshop.
I enjoy the reaction of my students to the learning process. A curiousity about music, determination, and participation in the lesson is my reward. Practicing the homework I give makes for a successful student.

Piano basics like finger numbering and finding the keys for A through G are the first topics. Also, where to place the hands on the keyboard. We start on middle C.
I guide the student to music material and songs with a mix of free musical teaching material in some cases.
My approach is patient and supportive.
