Introduction: I listen to the music that the students wants to play and show them dozens of alternative ways of transferring that love to the chosen instrument. You should know that I'm always in a wonderful mood when I teach (I mean wonderful) except when the student doesn't work at all. I actually have four careers in music: I teach, I write, I play, and I tune pianos. Gratitude oozes forth from me daily for this good fortune, and I love most everything I do, including planning, eating, sleeping, riding my bike, and the students I see are real treasures. They know it, their parents know it, I know it. We don't talk about this, but there are many ways of knowing, as well as many ways of learning, and especially there are as many ways of playing as there are people on earth and Mars.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Every student is different. Every one gets a different teaching method. I've had thousands of students. Neither I nor my students are typical.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I have a university degree that says I teach music, and another that says I'm a master of music, in performance. Before the eight years of college, I took eight years of piano lessons. Since college I have had 5-7 more private teachers, depending on how you count them. No one ever asks to see my parchments because I am an experienced teacher. This is immediately evident, and there is no substitute for experience.

  • How did you get started doing this type of work?

    God and my parents showed me the beauty of music at an early age, and I never lost the sound.
