Introduction: I've been teaching piano for over 25 years - beginners, general musicianship, reading, theory, classical, jazz, blues and popular music. I tailor the lessons to fit my student's interest while making sure all the important fundamentals are understood and built upon. I love the look on a student's face when it clicks; that "oh I get it" expression.
