I have been playing saxophone, clarinet, flute and piano for seventeen years, and have been a career musician and educator for ten. My last job was as a high school band teacher in New York, and before that I taught elementary instrumental music in Japan.

I have a degree in Flute Performance from the University of Michigan (ranked #4 music school!) and have been fortunate to have performed all over the world with amazing musicians. I lived in New York City for ten years where I did lots of studio work and live performing.

No one ever regrets learning an instrument… yet many grow old wishing they had taken music lessons! A talent they’ll be able to develop their entire life, your children will thank you for giving them the chance to learn music. And bonus points for you: after just a couple years, you’ll have free entertainment every Christmas!Or maybe YOU’RE the one that wishes to learn! It is never too late to begin learning an instrument. Yes, I'm trying to get you to sign up for lessons, and yes I sincerely mean that. Everybody has the ability, and if you’re determined and interested, there’s nothing stopping us from achieving this very special goal. (Interested in learning to compose? Scroll to the bottom to learn more.)Everybody learns differently, and everybody likes different things. Whether it’s improvising or singing alongside a song you love or reading through a classical concerto, I’ll help prepare you or your child to tackle a wide variety of styles, without missing out on any of the basics that turn good players into phenomenal musicians. We all know it’s not about being the best. It’s about having fun, and playing music well is definitely fun.Practice makes perfect! Learning an instrument helps build self-confidence and discipline. If your child’s bored, distracted, or just needs a constructive hobby, music is a great place to get them interested in something that will help them feel better about themselves, and the effects will be felt across everything else they do, through better studying habits to a more patient, diligent work ethic.It’s also relaxing! Stressed about work? Need an escape? Maybe you want to sound like [insert piano player here]. Everybody has the power to learn an instrument. Seriously, there’s no such thing as “talent.” Just start lessons and get practicing! It really is that simple, and I’ll guide you through every step of the way.I have a diverse background teaching students of all ages, from 3-year-olds to retirees alike, customizing what we learn to the individual student. We’ll learn how to read music just as easily as you read words; improvise and compose music of our own; and feel good playing any style: classical, jazz, rock, and all. My experience as a working musician in films, musical theater, and pop music, as well as classical concert music, allows me to appreciate and teach styles that many other instructors overlook, and I know full well that learning an instrument is not about becoming a professional; it’s about being able to connect to others or oneself through music… and also to just have fun! There’s no need to learn music we don’t like! It’s not about stuffing Beethoven into your kids’ ears… we just want to make music, be that Beethoven or Billy Joel.Music lasts a lifetime. I know that’s a terrible cliché, but it’s true, and few other skills can claim that. I don’t want to sugarcoat it: it takes time to learn an instrument. It takes practice, and sometimes it’s frustrating. But the results are well worth it, and like a snowball rolling down a hill, the longer you do it, the faster you get… or something like that. There’s a legitimate analogy in there somewhere.Now get out there and make some music! But start by signing up for lessons. I can’t wait to get started!---“What’s that chord?” “Why does all my music sound the same?” “How do I fix this voicing?” “I just can’t get it out of my head!” …sound familiar? You’ve probably hit a rut. Or maybe you’re just starting out. Either way, you want your music to sound new, exciting, and to come out exactly how you hear it in your head. Yes… you CAN learn to compose music, you CAN learn to be more creative, and you CAN learn to share your sound with the world.Film music, classical, jazz… whatever your interest, all music comes from the same place, and by learning a handful of basic concepts, you can apply these to whatever style you’re trying to write. Learning to emulate another musician involves knowing what they’re doing. Learning to create a groundbreaking sound requires that you know what’s already been done, and how to achieve it. Step by step, we’ll work our way there.We’ll learn how to write cool, interesting chord progressions, how to write beautiful melodies, and how to voice chords. We’ll learn how to control the mood of our music, from making it sound relaxed to adding tension wherever we want. Maybe you’re trying to write for an orchestra, or just a small band. By learning the basics, you can then easily break away from what’s been done and come up with something truly new… the goal of any aspiring composer!

Piano TeacherAnaheim, CA

An avid coffee drinker and penguin lover, I have recently graduated magna cum laude at Chapman University with a bachelor’s degree in piano performance with a minor in integrated educational studies. There I could be found performing both solo and ensemble works on the piano, as well as the flute. Currently, I can be found furthering my musicianship as the choral piano accompanist at Buena Park high school and utilizing the skills I have learned playing for numerous ensembles in college in the professional setting. My true passion, however, lies in music education and giving the joy of music to the generation of tomorrow. I am a committed and passionate teacher who has been teaching piano and music theory to people of all ages since 2013. Whether it be in the music they are playing or the music they are listening to, my goal is to instill in my students a passion and appreciation for music that will, hopefully, last a lifetime.

I have been a professional music teacher since 1989, teaching all of the traditional band & orchestra instruments (winds & strings).

My education includes a Bachelor of Music degree from Cal-State Long Beach which has led me to become very knowledgeable of all the wind & string instruments listed in order to gain a full understanding of how to teach them to my students. I specialize in structuring my lessons to meet how the student desires to be taught. I want the student to be happy and have fun while learning to play their instrument.
