How to Learn the Piano and Love It!

What I'm going to say is going to be pretty controversial, but true 


Many piano teachers are not trained pianists; they're
guitarists, vocalists, or some other variant or they're
self-taught and have never been formally trained.


What makes me different?


  • You can find comfort in know that I only teach piano. I went to school for piano education so this is not just something I do on the side, and I take your goals pretty seriously.  

  • I'm able to teach you from beginner through advanced. So no matter where you start. You'll never have to worry about outgrowing me. 

  • It's my goal to help 1000 new students reach their piano goals by the year 2024. 


Some would say that sounds like a lofty goal. I don't think it is! I believe it starts one student at a time, so let me help you reach your piano goals? Click the button below to get your free trial lesson now while it's still fresh in your mind.

What Levels Do I Teach?


Your can expect to learn fundamentals of,

  • reading music

  • basic rhythms,

  • correct posture

  • hand shape

As well as finger strength and speed while playing from method books, sight reading, and extra contemporary songs I give. Skills and music theory will be learned on and off the piano with the floor piano, card games, or online apps.



You will learn further hand independence,

  • coordination

  • difficult note reading 

  • sight reading

  •  rhythms

We'll focus more on dynamics and emotion. We will work on extended chord reading while incorporating music theory and improvisation to contemporary songs we select together. If interested in NYSSMA, we will begin training for that as well.



You will learn

  • advanced music

  • music theory

  • polyrhythms 

  • transposing

As well as improving speed, sight reading, aural skills, chord progressions, memorization techniques, etc. If they are interested in auditioning for college, NYSSMA, or competing, I will begin training them for whatever their goal may be.
