Overview

Hello potential music student! I have been teaching music in Los Angeles for 17 years with great success. My students have ranged from young children to the elderly, absolute beginners and advanced.

I am fun and personable and don't take myself too seriously, however I take excellence in music seriously and am ready and able to help you do your very best, no matter what your goals are.

My degrees are in performance and composition, including improvised forms, so I am great with students who favor a very academic or experimental approach to music.

Master Classes and studies abroad

I was lucky enough to play in a chamber ensemble at the Banff Centre Chamber Music Festival in 2005. Our coach was the cellist Lawrence Lesser and we closed the festival with an un-conducted performance of Pierrot Lunaire by Schoenberg.

In the summer of 2012 I studied in London with the cellist Rohan de Saram and also participated in the Beethoven Sonata competition at the Steinway Gallery in London.

Questions and Answers

What experience do you have teaching kids?

I've been teaching students of all ages in Los Angeles since the year 2000. I've also volunteered at the Rock and Roll Camp for Girls for the last 14 years, where I've worked with kids from ages 8 to 18, from all sorts of backgrounds.

How do your lessons for adults differ from lessons for children?

Children and adults have very different needs when it comes to music lessons. I generally allow much more flexibility with adult students, as their goals are very different.

Why are you a music teacher?

In my heart I am a music lover and I am a working professional musician, and teaching only enhances those things.

Why should I choose you as my teacher?

I'm fun and I'm hard working and I'm very good at assessing what a student needs and helping them work toward their goals, whether it be winning competitions or just playing for fun and never playing for anyone other than me.

Read Answer

What do you do during the first lesson?

The first lesson is really spent figuring out what level the student is at and what they know about music (and what they don't know), and figuring out a direction to go in; a lesson plan, what kind of books are good, what they want to work on, what kind of music they like, and it's different for everybody!
