Introduction: I cater to the individual. I like to think of myself as a piano tutor instead of teacher, where I do teach, but I also can act as a guide. I use each lesson as a stepping stone for the next lesson. I feel that if the student has not improved, I have not done my job correctly. I do stress, however, that music is a commitment, and like all true commitments, it takes effort. I don't follow a specific pedagogy across the board, because I recognize that different students have different needs. I love sharing what I know and watching my students maturing as pianists.

He is really patient and explaining everything quite explicitly. The materials used are very beneficial l as it contains really good music theories and helps strengthen fingers , but the songs in the materials are not so interesting.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    $50.00 per hour, $40 for 45 mins, $30.00 for a half hour. All students get free materials for their first lesson. Contact me for any additional questions or arrangements.

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

    After scheduling an appointment, the first lesson may be a standard introductory lesson. if the student had prior experience, I would try to ascertain where the student is at knowledge and skill-wise. I am also interested in learning what the student wishes to learn specifically, as this may, affect what is taught.

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

    I have played since I was young and have had six personal teachers myself. I have taken courses in music but my passion for the instrument arose after multiple epiphanies as I matured. Music is a language, and the best way to learn a language is to immerse yourself in it, but... pianists can never say that they have finished learning the instrument for there is always a technique to improve, a new piece to practice etc.
