I have been teaching for about 10 years now. I cater my curriculum based on my students needs and interests. I teach applied music theory, sight reading, and ear training. I love music and my hope is to share that love with my students.
My son has been taking piano lessons with Adela for over 2 years. She is fun to work with. She lets my son choose the songs he wants to play. He really enjoys taking piano lessons from Adela.
Excellent skill of approaching kids. Adela knows how to make music interesting for kids and make it something fun to play on kids' level.
Adela is funny, nice and good at explaining the lesson according to my kids.
We have been taking piano lessons with Adela for about 7 years (for my 13 years old son) and 3 years (for my 9 years old daughter) and we love her. She caters the lessons based on the individual capability for both my kids. Overall, my kids love taking piano lessons from Adela.
2 years of studying piano pedagogy from Marylhurst University.
2+ years of private music/pedagogy lessons from Mary Kogen, a former portland state university teacher who specialized in teaching teachers.
I have primarily worked with kids ages 5 through 13.
