To play without passion is inexcusable.
Ludwig Van Beethoven
Manassas - Available Days: Friday
Hello! My name is Miguel and I've been teaching Piano at Music & Arts in Manassas since 2014.
I have been teaching music for more than ten years!
I started playing music when I was nine years old, playing favorites songs such as Super Mario Bros, Star Wars, the Peanuts theme song, plus classical pieces and some jazz. I studied in several different academies and institutes, graduating from the Conservatory of Bolivia. My teacher eventually asked me to assist my fellow students when I was twelve years old, helping to develop my passion of teaching and creating. This allowed me to find my love for teaching and it has continued from that point on. Along with playing music, I started writing my own songs at the age of fourteen. Composing, playing and teaching has always been my passions and dedications.
I have performed in churches, weddings, for birthdays, and other various events.
As a teacher the methods books that I use for teaching is the Alfred's, Hal Leonard, Faber Music Piano Adventures, and John Thompson series. I believe teaching both ways by sight and by ear is very important, depending on the student's abilities. From there I know what each individual student needs. I'm very open to song request from my students.
I do my best in helping students reach their dreams and goals through music.
