I’m a piano player and all around music lover! I’ve played piano for many years and won several competitions. I started teaching private lessons in high school, and I’m still doing it 7 years later.
My philosophy on teaching is somewhat unconventional. Music lessons should be fun! I don’t believe learning music should ever be strict or boring. Some of the best songs are sometimes the most simple. Note reading is important, but playing by ear can be just as valuable depending on each students strengths and talents.
My interests outside of music include writing, snowboarding, web design, and pets.
I also play and teach guitar and the drums, however, my main instrument is piano.
University of Colorado Boulder – Piano Performance Major
