Teaching Style

Child at the PianoAs a professional pianist and teacher, I adapt my teaching style to my students’ unique personalities and learning needs. I thoroughly enjoy teaching children and adults everything about playing the piano, music theory, and how they can most effectively practice and learn music.

My students play the style and era of music that they wish! I have taught a range of music from Beatles hits to Beethoven sonatas. It is so rewarding to see a new concept “click” with my students. It is that moment that I work so hard with you to achieve.

I have great experience teaching children in classroom settings, as well as private lessons. I am sure not to create a strenuous or harsh environment for children – I want everyone to enjoy learning, and to want to practice! There are so many components of music to learn – I find that my adult students are always very surprised and intrigued at all the different facets of playing the piano.

I teach a technique that eliminates chances of injuries or stress, and that creates a beautiful sound. This is a necessary focus that many teachers do not spend enough or any time on; we incorporate a stress-free technique in everything you play. Along with learning the technicalities of the piano, there is a lot of music theory and history to learn that actually has a great impact on how one plays the piano. I have been trained for years in conservatories in these fields, and would love to teach anyone from the very beginning, or someone who has been playing for years that would like to start taking lessons again. Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions or to book a lesson!
