I am pleased to offer piano lessons in my home studio in El Cerrito. My lessons are classically based, emphasizing strong grounding in technique, and also incorporate composition, improvisation and detailed score analysis. With over 10 years of teaching experience, I bring the versatile perspective of a contemporary performing musician to my music education philosophy and aim to encourage each student’s distinct musical voice. I have taught and coached students who have gone on to top universities and music schools, including Yale, Juilliard, University of Michigan, and others. Additionally, I have trained in NLP (Neuro-Linguistic Programming) and am very interested in the brain’s understanding and mapping of concepts through a variety of sensory inputs and networks.
Prospective students can contact me to schedule an interview and trial lesson.
