I have resources that allow nearly any student make the progress they are looking for. First and foremost, I try to understand the type of person my client is. Communication is key, which I try to strive for from the beginning. Once I understand someone's musical style, personality, and cognitive behavior, I pool all my methods and resources in providing what they need. I try to incorporate methods that students of any age can understand easily and be able to achieve satisfactorily. I provide an endless amount of music repertoire that the student will love.
I love interacting with students of various personalities and age groups!

For each student I provide methods so that my students have basics for piano playing and music learning. I usually tailor each student to their learning styles and abilities. I usually start with songs from a method book I usually use, which consists of many songs that even a beginner would be familiar with. I also will supplement with some small exercises as well.
I have been professionally trained at a music school in piano, voice, and piano pedagogy. In addition, I am always going to the latest pedagogical conferences either locally or nationally. I am very active with the Piano Teacher's Congress in New York and the New York Music Teacher's Association which allow various events for students to take part.

I have worked with ages 4 to adult at various levels from beginner to advanced throughout the 15 years I have taught. A majority of my students are beginners to immediate levels, with some advanced level students. I have taken a some students to professional level where they have pursued music in college.
When hiring a teacher, make sure one is willing to work with the skill level, age, and musical style he or she can provide. Sometimes a teacher from very prestigious backgrounds are usually more comfortable with dealing with intermediate and/or advanced students and may not be so sensitive and understanding to the needs of a beginner and/or an early intermediate student. At the same time, a teacher should have a certain level of professional musical training that allows he or she to understand the craft of the instrument and teaching, such as obtaining a music degree and/or performing in well known places.
