My passion for music expands in every aspect from teaching to performing or researching new music. My approach towards teaching is to help each and every student develop their God given potential. I like to teach skills for life not just for the piano. With over 30 years of experience, my students have won national and international competitions all over. I try to encourage students to participate in music events to help them grow musically and personally. I am located in Las Vegas, and can be located thru my website damarispianist.com or on Facebook damarismorales.com to see performances of my students and myself. I have been adjunct faculty at the College of Southern Nevada for 20 years, give master classes and clinics and perform solo and chamber music all over the US and Latin America.
I enjoy teaching because it allows me to be a mentor for young minds, and enjoy performing because it allows me to communicate in a very intimate manner with my audience thru the beautiful language of music.
My kids have had many Piano teachers in the past, but none have the overall experience, knowledge, dedication as Ms. Damaris. As one of my daughters said " she's unbelievable". She is very solid on good technique and incredible with motivating students. She actually cares for all her students. She teaches from experience as a professional Concert Pianist all over the world. I recommend if you want the best for your children, then do contact her, she is usually pretty full but if you can get in and get an audition, your children will never go anywhere else.
I like to have an initial interview with the parents and the students to get to know each other and discuss their goals and aspirations and my studio procedures, including the pupils weekly practice and expectations.
I hold a Bachelor of Music and Master of Music degree in Piano Performance with extensive postgraduate studies in piano pedagogy.
I have an hour rate and can be prorated for the 45 minute lessons, and charge the month in advance, month by month. It's very simple!
I've had the widest range of students over the years, from the very gifted, competition winners at international competitions, and music majors to autistic students and music lovers of all kind.
