I have been teaching for over 10 years. I teach privately full-time and run my own company. I personally hire other enthusiastic and experienced music teachers to work with me. I believe learning music should be fun. While it also takes hard work and dedication, a student must first enjoy music in order to continue and progress. My teachers and I incorporate well-known songs into lessons so that students can relate to what they are learning. We also use many of our own games and worksheets to keep students engaged at all times. We offer many different types of lessons including voice, piano, guitar, and songwriting.  ... View Profile

Hi! Teaching piano and music in general is my passion, and I hope I'm doing it forever. I stand out as a teacher because I thoroughly enjoy coming up with creative ways to learn, and am looking to immediately apply every new lesson to a song, piece, or improvisation. Music is a language just as any language. It is skillful to learn it, but it is not a skill. It is a way of communicating and connecting to yourself and others. I do not want you to feel you are learning a skill with tasks to complete as much as I want you to be expressing yourself as soon as possible, and it is such a fun adventure to discover new ways to do that. I love to laug ... View Profile

I have known since  college that I wanted to be a piano teacher. I love teaching and working with students of all ages and abilities. I feel that if I can help someone achieve success in music, it will help then succeed in other areas of life as well. And I define “achieving success” as  getting a student to the point where they feel musically fulfilled. For some, this simply means playing their favorite song with both hands. For others, it means performing at a professional level. And for most, it’s somewhere in between. I received my Bachelor and Master of Music degrees from the Juilliard School and Mannes ...
