About Carl

I have had 13 years of private instruction. I have participated in the Yamaha Midwest piano competition at Western Illinois University finishing in the top five of all participants. I love to impart my gift of playing piano to others; it makes me feel good inside to know that others may be able to play like I do by learning some basic, fundamental concepts about the piano and how to play it well. I do not have a vast array of experience teaching but I know where to begin with a beginner and where to pick up with an intermediate player.

I have mastered chord structure as a method of playing piano - I use the root and subsequent inversions of various chords to achieve a most pleasing and harmonious sound. Furthermore, I encourage stretching the octaves in the left hand (between pinky and thumb) to accompany the melody in the right hand to give a full, rich sound.

I am available Monday through Friday in the mornings and afternoons. These are my best times for availability. I can either teach at my home or wherever you may prefer.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Piano

I have had 13 years of private instruction. I have participated in the Yamaha Midwest piano competition at Western Illinois University finishing in the top five of all participants. I have played at Leona's, Nordstrom's, the Skokie Holiday Inn, as well as private events. I strive very much to entertain, and my lively, invigorating style is sure to make people want to either sing or dance or both.
