About Darshell

I am a Certified Music Educator who has taught music instruction for over 20 years. I received my Bachelors Degree with a focus in Piano Performance and a Masters Degree in Musicology from Rutgers University. Shortly afterwards, I began teaching piano at several reputable music studios in New Jersey until I decided to build my own private and online music studio, Darshell’s Quality Music which is still active, today. During this time I devised an innovative method of teaching and put it into a curriculum which I use on my current students. Because the the curriculum produced favorable results, in 1998, I made the decision to expand my teaching services to reach outside of the four walls of my music studio and developed music curricula for various institutions such as the largest state juvenile secure-care facility in New Jersey, a Freedom School program and a small New Jersey independent charter school.

The best part about teaching is developing an understanding of every student's learning style and building their skills based on that. There isn't one particular learning style so there shouldn't be one particular teaching style. When Educators understand this, a student's progress is endless.

I'm an outstanding piano instructor because I allow students to grow, musically, at their own pace.

I'm an outstanding special needs tutor because I differentiate instruction based on each student's ability. I use a student's strengths to build up their weaknesses.

Contact me if you're interested in having fun while playing the piano, successfully.
