Methodology

My priority is to inspire & guide my students in fun, creative ways, both traditional and modern. I tailor my approach to each student's unique goals & talents. For traditional piano, I generally use the Bastien method. For pop/jazz, I generally use the iReal Pro app. Also available: instruction in songwriting, music theory/arranging/composition. [In addition, I can provide Piano Tuning services at a discounted rate.]
