I love to teach lessons to any age - whether you are an adult who wishes you hadn't quit as a kid or a parent looking for a teacher for their child(ren). I began as a classically trained pianist and finished up school learning modern styles, and can teach basics in any style.
I teach either at your home or mine in the St. Paul, MN area, including eastern and south-eastern suburbs. Currently I teach in:
- Maplewood area on Monday
- Hudson area on Tuesday
- Lakeville/Apple Valley/Eagan area on Wednesdays and Thursdays
My goal is to answer the question "Why will the student be playing in 5, 10, 20 years?" with each of my students. I do believe that having a basic understanding of standard music reading, a little theory and also reading chord charts/lead sheets is important. But I will tailor how I teach these skills to the goals and interests of my student.
