I believe in tailoring lessons to suit the interests and talents of each student so that they can achieve their personal musical goals. Each student is unique, and learns in a different way. I offer piano students of ages 6 and up instruction in reading music, keyboard technique, music theory, music history and general musicianship that will serve them either to pursue a career in music or to nurture a lifelong love and appreciation for it.
For beginning and intermediate students, I teach using a combination of the Piano Adventures series and a variety of age-appropriate supplemental materials--a balanced approach that considers both student appeal and the building blocks of musicianship. For intermediate and advanced students, I also work with the student to select piano repertoire from all periods of classical music as well as jazz and pop as suits their interests.
Private piano instruction is available in 30, 45, and 60-minute increments out of my home studio in the Richmond District of San Francisco.
If you would like to set up a trial lesson, please contact me and I would be happy to meet with you and/or your child for a 30-minute session for a fee of $45.
