Have you ever wanted to learn to play an instrument and experience the joy of making music? It is never too late to start! Music is a universal language that helps improve cognitive skills. It is shown to help children excel in other subjects such as math and reading. Music is a gift to share with family and friends and enriches life in many ways! Whether your goal is to play professionally or just for yourself, taking piano lessons is a very rewarding experience.
Through my years of teaching piano, I have instructed a wide variety of students ranging from 3 to 90 years old! I pride myself in giving a solid foundation of music theory to each student that comes through my studio. With this, they learn the "language of music" and can apply it to any instrument they choose to study throughout their life. Lessons are tailored to each individual student, so they can reach their maximum potential at their own pace. The concepts that are covered in lessons include technique, note reading, rhythm reading, music history, music theory, improvisation and interpretation. Recitals are scheduled two times per year, which give students a chance to perform and show what they have learned!
My own music education started with the piano when I was five years old and still continues to today. I currently hold my Bachelor of Music in Theory and Composition from California Baptist University and have been teaching privately for 5 years. I am able to teach a wide variety of styles from contemporary to classical, Broadway to jazz and everything in between!
I am currently accepting students in my home studio in Riverside, CA.
