Piano Lessons from a solid Pro
I tailor my lessons to the student's needs. Those needs might include:
Starting at the very beginning, dusting off some old skills, sharpening your professional skills, improvisation, sight-reading, really useful ear-training, technique (can you control the piano?), learning to play by ear that song that you heard on your smart phone, understanding chords, voicings, modes, structure, what is the circle of fifths and why should I care?, learning to accompany yourself when you sing and coming up with a version of the song that's much better than the sheet music, classical, jazz, pop, theater, rock, the whole musical universe. I'm a pianist, but also a singer and songwriter, so I understand how to help you in those related areas. So if you're ready to jump in the musical pool, I'm ready to show you around.
