My Music Degree is from the College of Notre Dame University in Baltimore, Md. I have continued my piano studies throughout the years with notable professors. I attend piano teaching workshops on a regular basis to stay up-to-date with new teaching materials.
Genres and Subjects Taught
My students are taught a complete knowledge of music theory. The fundamentals of scales, chord structures, arpeggios etc. are taught in each lesson. Musical technique develops with these fundamentals. I teach students a variety of music genres depending on the age and musical development of each student. As students progress, they will be studying a variety of music styles such as Jazz, Contemporary, Baroque, Classical , Romantic, Modern and if students request, hymn playing technics are also taught.
