- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
I collect information about the student's needs, desired goals and background, if they've taken lessons before. I provide a copy of my detailed studio policies, additional information about my background, and will confer by phone, in person, or by Skype to answer any and all questions the student/parent has. If the student has taken lessons before or knows how to read music, then I'll assess what level they're at and what their learning needs are, and create a roadmap of their development as I see it. That provides students and parents with a clear picture of what they can expect from lessons with me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I was educated at Indiana University's Jacobs School of Music, which is the largest and one of the most internationally prestigious music schools in the world. I am both a master teacher and concert pianist. I am in a constant mode of self development, through presenting new concerts, engaging with top tier peers about the science of piano teaching, and my summer work also exposes me to international piano students, where I can observe many different styles of teaching from around the world. I also observe and coach students across the U.S. for music teacher organizations as well as abroad.
- What types of customers have you worked with?
My versatility serves my Customers extremely well. I teach all musical styles, music theory, and composition. I've worked with students at all levels, literally. Age range: 6 to Adult. Level: from total beginners all the way up to active piano teachers and performing professional pianists. Musical goals: I have students who take lessons for leisure and enjoyment, who learn as a skill that develops and results in their academic studies across all subjects, and serious students who aspire to attend world-class music schools/conservatories, earning major scholarships.
