My philosophy is to support students in cultivating a passion for music and their musical journey.
My approach is very student-centred. I work with each and every student on their individual goals and learning styles. I welcome students of all ages and backgrounds, and I teach all genres (e.g. classical, modern, improvisation), both practical or theory (including composition and songwriting).
To start, I establish a solid foundation for my students, imparting proper techniques in order to improve tone and avoid injury. As we progress, I emphasize the feel of different styles of playing.
Anyone can plunk a note on a piano, but few can make it sound good. My hope is to help you to sound like the recordings you so love!
For students wishing to pursue more serious studies, I encourage following the RCM curriculum. I offer preparation strategies and performance coaching as well, for those who may struggle with nerves or expression in front of people. For students wishing for a relaxed instruction, we will focus on the pieces you want to play—no pressure. :)
