I create a individualized lesson plan for each student. This is based in theory, technique and student goals with an emphasis on creative expression. Music is a language based on listening and creative expression. I teach music theory but encourage each student to find their own voice.

This is Max at my studio. He has been playing piano for over a year. He is a hard worker, skilled player and has a great sense of humor. Lately, he has been working on his own compositions. Writing sheet music and trying out new ideas. He just finished a composition in the treble cleff, now working on the bass. Can't wait to see what he comes up with.
