I enjoy teaching piano to children ages 7 and up and adults. All stages, beginners to advanced.
My students get a varied musical education, including music theory, and introductions to classical, jazz and show styles. I use pieces which have familiar tunes and some which do not. The reasoning for this is two-fold. Students can tell when they are not playing the correct notes if they know the melody, but they need to concentrate in a different way to explore an unfamiliar piece. As well as learning to hone their skills in reading music they learn correct posture and finger technique.
Two performance opportunities during the year.
I teach bel canto method to singers age 15 and up,with an emphasis on helping young people find their true voice. I do not teach rock or pop style. I teach a "legit" style. Also do coaching for professionals.
