I taught piano lessons through my college music department to students in the community for three and a half years. I’ve taught ages 7-14, college students, and adults. I prefer to teach based on the student’s personal goals and style choices. I’ve taught from the Faber & Faber: Piano Adventures series and the Bastien series but am open to teach using other series along with supplements coinciding with the student’s goals.
I enjoy teaching classical, jazz, ragtime, blues, popular/contemporary, and improvisation. I believe in tapping into every style of music to gain a well-rounded musical experience. I’m passionate about students gaining a comfortable and strong understanding of music theory to aid in their lifelong musical journey no matter the age. I encourage improvisation and songwriting/composition to expand on, and use, their practice and understanding of music theory.
