When it comes to your child's musical education, choosing the best teacher and program for your needs is a major decision. I offer alternative musical options for those not certain if Traditional Musial Education is the route for them. My teaching is based on a deep educational philosophy, developed by Dr. Shinichi Suzuki, proven to work in the study of classical music. My focus is to apply these principles towards the nurturing of versatile Contemporary Pianists. My curriculum includes: Performance, ranging from the works of the Masters to contemporary composers; The study of notation and interpretation of the score; Advanced development of the ear; Improvisation; The elements of contemporary music; Encouraging creativity in each student; Experience in ensemble performance.
