Professional musician, Bachelors degree Berklee College of Music, Masters Degree UNT, over 40 years experience performance and teaching.

Methodology

I have developed my own methodology using simple diagrams and easy to follow instructions in order to play songs quickly and successfully. Using my method students quickly understand that music does not have to be daunting, but instead can be simple and enjoyable.

If you can use a smart phone you can learn to play the piano.

Background

I have been teaching piano for over forty years. My students have ranged from six to ninety years in age. I teach students at all levels of proficiency, from novice to collegiate music majors and professionals. My current student roster is small due to COVID-19, but I have had as many as 60 students concurrently enrolled for lessons.
