You're an intermediate level pianist and you're looking for a new teacher. It is probably for one of two main reasons:
Your teacher moved away or retired; or you just moved to a new neighborhood and are looking for a teacher. Many students come to me on the recommendation of a friend, a piano store, or even from their previous teacher; understandably a little nervous about starting with someone new.
You're unhappy with your current lessons
Sometimes students come to me ready to quit the piano altogether! They are frustrated and losing interest, or their parents are impatient after years of lessons and seeing little progress. I promise you that you can play the piano to your satisfaction! Work with me for a little while and you will learn to play, you will improve steadily, and you will look forward to playing the piano.
Growing to the Next Level
Whatever the reason, we will rebuild a strong foundation so you can grow to the next level. You will master technical skills, learn effective practice habits, develop theory, ear training, music appreciation, learn how to read and understand a piece before you play. We'll continue to reinforce the fundamentals vital for every pianist to move onto each new level with confidence, more reliably and more quickly.
This is the real thing. High quality piano instruction, comprehensive and tailored to the way you learn. There are no shortcuts, no copy & paste program methods getting you to repeat notes and imitate songs. Just playing notes without knowing why you're playing them isn't fun; you won't grow, and you will lose interest very quickly. Our lessons are filled with insights, information and discovery. You will enjoy growing your skills while building a solid musical foundation for the future.
It may be the old-school model, but I am a music educator, not a lesson factory. I don't "sub-out" lessons to others. When you choose me as your teacher, you are paying for my musical legacy.
