My teaching and performing experience together with my dual degree from Berklee College of Music has given me the tools to teach you rhythm, harmony, and melody within a customized curriculum based on your musical focus, goals and time. The knowledge I acquired will be taught with joy for you to find in drums, percussion, piano, guitar, and bass a language for you to communicate your feelings with the best techniques.
I love helping students reach whatever goals they set their heart on achieving. I won't let you leave a lesson and not understand what you came in to learn. I recognize that every student learns at their own pace, and not everybody is going to learn the same thing the same way. I love just having fun with my students so practice and studying don't have to seem like a "chore." Music is so exciting and ever-evolving, and I want them to go to sleep that night excited to learn more! My goal is to always keep you growing.
Born and raised in Vancouver, Canada, I began my classical piano lessons at the age of 5. Throughout my childhood I participated in many competitions such as the Kiwanis Music Festival in Vancouver and Calgary winning two three first place awards. I have traveled to Schlern, Italy for their yearly International Music Festival recommended by the head music professor of San Diego State University. In Los Angeles, I have studied with countless great musicians and professors privately and in master classes.
Teaching is learning and learning is loving. Music is love. This is what I am and this is what I do. I want to share the love and beauty of music. I want to give my students the opportunity to grow up. During my lessons I like to follow three steps: listening, practicing and playing. My philosophy is that piano lessons in El Segundo should always be fun!
