What ages do you teach?
From 6 to infinity!
Do I need a piano?
I suggest you start with a good quality digital piano with sustain pedal. The day will come when you realize that there is nothing like a high quality acoustic piano.
How much should my child practice?
Everyday, between 30 minutes to 2 hours. It really depends on the age and what goals have been set.
What books should I get?
I keep a large selection of books in stock or will order what you need. I expect payment for materials upon receipt.
Do you teach students to play with chords or by ear?
Not directly. Eventually chords are learned and playing by ear is discovered. A curriculum based on chords does not fully develop the student’s ability. Playing by ear is a wonderful by- product of a strong technical and music theory core. I enjoy both paths and gladly share my knowledge with students.
