Too often piano lessons are spoiled by overemphasis on repetitive exercise and etudes. This approach is antiquated and usually ineffective. In my studio learning and refining music is always the priority. Different tools, such a vocalization and outlining often help my students make vast technical leaps without ever having to spend hours strengthening their fingers. Sometimes an exercise is appropriate, to isolate one difficulty can save time. But music is of the ears, not the hands, so that is always where we begin.  I am Juilliard trained and an experienced performer. I've had extensive study with teachers of different philosophies, an ... View Profile
