Classically Trained Piano Instructor

Hello: I am very excited that you are considering me to be your piano tutor. Whether one is performing or listening, music is supposed to be enjoyed.

And success would be defined as how far along they come after a month, several months, or years. Some of the warm-up skills I focus on are: scales, arpeggios (... [more]

For almost ten years, I have tutored many high school students in courses ranging from English and social studies, to math and the sciences. T... [more]
