About the lesson
My philosophy is to start with my students' musical passion and what inspires them to practice, working with their individual learning styles, rather than using one set method. I believe in weaving a solid foundation of healthy technique, ear training and musicianship, with having fun and encouraging curiosity. We can work on reading sheet music, learning by ear, or a bit of both!
I work with all ages, levels and genre preferences, from opera to pop, to folk fiddle, to movie soundtrack adaptations for the piano, to learning the basics of holding a bow or reading a chord chart. I'm ready to help you play the music you've always wanted to!
