Welcome future piano students!

I've been teaching private piano lessons for over 20 years and have taught all levels, ages and genres ranging from ages 5 to 85.

Do you want to take your playing to the next level? Did you have traditional piano training years ago but never learned how to improvise or even learn chords and theory? Are you starting from scratch?

What you can expect to learn:
• Your favorite songs -- any style, any era:, Adele, Drake, Coldplay, Bruno Mars, Stevie Wonder, EWF, Sting, Carol King, Elton John, Beatles, Marvin Gaye, Steely Dan, Gap Band, Toto, etc. -- just like the recording
• The option to study standard and virtuoso classical literature: Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Liszt, Schubert etc.
• Technique
• Ear Training (hear it and play it)
• Sight-reading (charts and notation)
• Effective fingering
• Expression

Whatever your background, I can help you. I have developed my own teaching methods over my years of experience and every student is different so I create a lesson plan to best suit my students' needs and reach goals; whether it's technique, theory, sight reading, playing by ear, accompaniment, improvisation, composing, or reading charts and lead sheets (melody and chords).

I have been playing piano for over 40 years and have been professionally performing for over 25 years and teaching for over 20 years. I started studying classical at age 7 and evolved into jazz, R&B, funk, latin and many other genres of music. You can read more about me on my website:

All ages and levels welcome! I'm also available for events, weddings, parties, etc!

I'd like to hear what your goals are so I can decide what to focus on with you. Please visit my website for more info at
