My goal is is to give my students the tools to become complete musicians. That means not only developing the ability to play, but also the ability to think about music. With this goal in mind from the very first lesson, we quickly establish the fundamentals of technique and sight-reading. Students are soon playing pieces from great composers such as Bach, Mozart, as well as contemporary songs. This material is supplemented with theory coursework which we review in class.
Once a year, my students have the opportunity to participate in a recital at a local church in downtown Los Angeles to showcase their skills.
I've been playing piano for 18 years and teaching for three years. When I was sixteen, I completed the exam for advanced piano performance & music theory from the MTAC (Music Teachers Association of California). Since then, I've been focused on studying the works of great composers, writing my own music, and teaching others.
My first job at 16 was as an elementary/middle school tutor. I tutored students to help improve their scores in every subject from math to history. I've also worked as a tennis instructor for Lifetime Tennis in Cupertino, CA, where I taught kids ages 5 to 17 the strategy and technique of tennis. I've been a piano teacher for four years, working with people of many ages and experience levels.
