I am a classically trained pianist whose greatest passion is the piano. I enjoy the opportunity to pass my knowledge and experience on to other people. I started playing the piano when I was 7 years old and since then I haven’t stopped. I’ve performed in many concerts, accompanied orchestras, symphonies, choirs, and singers. If you’re serious about learning how to play piano then I am your teacher. If you like to compose or want to learn how to arrange music and play by ear then we would be a great match because one of my points of emphasis is composing and arranging. I’ve been honored to have won several competitions over the years with some of the music that I’ve written. Being 21 years old, I can also connect with the young learners. If you have kids that are having problems practicing or don’t seem to enjoy their time on the piano, bring them to me. Piano isn’t always fun or easy but it pays off in the end. I have reasonable rates which I am willing to negotiate depending on the circumstances. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact me either via email or phone. Thank you for your consideration.
