I have been fortunate to work as a music teacher for the past 10 years and could not think of my life without music! While I specialize in teaching children, I also love working with adults! I have taught piano lessons, both group and private style, to a diverse range of ages and backgrounds. I find it highly important to learn theory and ear training as you go so you wont be blindsided by it later on in your musical development. Thus, I create fun and innovative ways to teach these "music fundamentals" so that it does not seem like a tedious activity! I teach all styles of music: classical, contemporary, musical theater, and some jazz.
In addition to teaching piano I am studying to become a music therapist, as I believe that music is one of the most powerful healing tools. In my studies I have learned new ways of reaching people with music, and I incorporate a lot of improvisational exercises to help strengthen the ear, and become in "tune" (no pun intended) with the music!
I have studied ear training at the Musicians Institute in California, and have also had intense private music instruction for 16 years. I have taught piano, music theory, ear training, and music production to ages ranging from 4 years to 60 years. I had 16 years of private piano lessons, followed by 2 years of professional music training at The Musicians Institute in California.
I am located in the downtown Manhattan area and can travel to you!
