I’ve been playing piano since my early teens and have been surrounded by music since my earliest memories. Music has always been a communal activity to me and passing along its secrets to others has always felt equally important to me as my own learning and discovery.I have taught and coached hundreds of people of all ages following a wide range of styles. Whatever you age or experience, I can help you improve and get more from your music.
Just starting out?
I can set you on the track. I strongly believe that beginning material can and should still be good music. I can quickly help you find your style and start playing the music you love.
Playing for a while but stuck in a rut?
I can motivate and help you establish clear objectives to ensure progress. Get you practicing the right things to meat your goals as well as introduce you to a wealth of exciting and new material.
Want to push your playing to the next level?
I can assess your strengths & weaknesses, help you tackle challenging material and refine your technique as well as teaching you higher concepts of musical interpretation and performance.
