Born in Sri Lanka, I have been teaching for 17 years. My journey in music began at the age of 4. With a direct pianistic lineage dating back to Franz Liszt, my natural gift for music was instantly obvious and it did not take long before I began developing my superb technique under the guidance of virtuoso musician, Dawn Owen, and concert pianist, Beulah Ambrose.
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.
I have been playing music for 11 years now and it's been a blast! I am currently a jazz studies major at UNT. Music has been an important part of life. My love for music has taken me to places I never imagined I'd see. From the Hollywood Bowl to Carnegie Hall in NYC, my love for music and dedication to my craft have solidified the importance of music. Music a beautiful language and we are all entitled to experience it.
I started playing the piano at age 12. After one year of private lessons, I got accepted to Bilkent University Faculty of Performing Arts with a full scholarship. After five years there, I went to Vienna Conservatory to study with Professor Roland Batik. In 2012, I came to US to study at Berklee College of Music. I finished 5-year dual major program of Film Scoring and Electronic Production/Design in 2 years. I have performed at numerous venues, both solo and with symphony orchestras, and I have taught many students throughout El Segundo.
Learn Piano, Guitar, Vocals, Saxophone, Clarinet, or Music Production;the easy, the fun way. I take a beginning student from learning the notes of their instrument, reading music, learning beginning melodies, music theory (including scales, and chords), all the way to learning modern pop songs and melodies and playing actual parts from songs on the radio with the recording as well as teaching a student to play pop, jazz, classical or any other genre. Advanced students are encouraged to write music and start creating.
