Now offering piano lessons for beginners.
The piano is the "Rosetta Stone" of musical instruments. Piano instruction offers both the skill of playing the instrument, as well as a comprehensive understanding of music theory and practice. The same musical language may be applied to most of the instruments around the world.
Many musicians who learned the piano have, in turn, picked up on other instruments with ease, and they even compose their own music. Musical training teaches multitasking, coordination of mind and body, and appreciation of music that is unattainable otherwise.
It helps people discover abilities they didn't realize they possessed. One learns the process of learning itself: how to examine problems and how to work toward solutions. It helps with emotional balance, offering the ability to work out problems while you play. Learning to play music with others also teaches cooperation and compatibility in a non-competitive environment.
I began taking piano lessons in the early sixties in Fullerton, California, and I continued private study though 1975, specializing in classical music and theory. My latest teacher was the prominent performer Leann Gibson who specialized in neoclassical music, focusing on Scriabin and Chopin.
I began teaching piano to children in 1973 and had many students though my high school years. After taking a break, I resumed teaching in the late '80s and early '90s: both times I gave private lessons in a Montessori School in Norco, California.
I now offer piano instruction in Newport News, Virginia.
