Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?
A. I started taking piano lessons when I was eight years old. I loved playing the piano and by third grade I knew I wanted to be a piano teacher. Continuing to learn and excel, I was able to study with the renowned Dr. Donald Isaak at Arizona State University while still in high school. During this time, even though very busy with school, and practicing several hours a day, as well as often performing, I started teaching some friends and family members. I enjoyed teaching and the money I was able to earn. Since that time I have given piano lessons to children and adults of all ages and in many different situations, and I think I always will because I love it that much.
Q. What types of customers have you worked with?
A. I teach them how to sight read music and understand theory. As well as developing talents in playing by ear. They also learn technique such as scales and arpeggios.
Q. Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
