I have been playing piano for over four years now and have had a passion for music all my life. I have studied music theory and composition for 3 years and have played piano everywhere from big stages to the comfort of my own room. I teach my students how I wish I would have been taught starting out learning piano. I have an immense passion for piano and hope to share that with my students by taking different approaches to learning and having fun while doing so.
What I enjoy most about teaching piano is being able to share the joy that comes with being able to play the piano.
Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I always ask my students what they are looking to achieve in playing the piano. Whether it's learning how to play popular music, learn theory and composition or play a specific style of piano. I then create a plan that is specific to their individual goals and help them follow it.
How did you get started teaching?
One of my close friends wanted to learn how to play the piano, so I decided to teach them. I really enjoyed the process of teaching them and helping them achieve their piano playing goals, so I decided to start teaching other people and make it my job.
What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?
I would advise any student looking for a teacher to find one that is going to work with you and your specific goals, not just create a plan for you to follow without your input.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
What is my end goal for piano? Will this teacher help me achieve my goals? Am I ready to put in the work to be a good pianist?
