Zen Piano Studio
Zen Piano Studio is a warm, open, and fun environment for children, teenagers and adults to learn and advance the skills needed for a fulfilling piano journey. Lessons are very thoughtfully and professionally tailored to the age, background, needs, goals and learning style of each student.
Solid technique, performance skills, audition and competition artistry, theory, ear training and a variety of styles and approaches to piano mastery are taught early on. A special emphasis is placed on meditative lessons where students learn to develop a great sense of awareness, self-confidence and the ability to play with ease.
I love teaching children, teens, adults, and senior citizens of all backgrounds and musical learning styles. It is so fulfilling to see my students grow and improve their quality of life through music. My students have won competitions and performed in Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and have been accepted to well-renowned music schools. I am so proud of all of my students and look forward to enriching your life with the gift of music.
