I am teaching private lessons in Perris and Temecula, CA.
I am also offering long distance lessons via skype or logitech video.
All my private lessons are in a master class style if possible, with other students present working on their theory books. All in a non competitive and friendly, yet challenging environment. Most of my students are ages 3 – 12th grade and adult. My emphasis is a solid piano playing foundation, solid pulse, theory, sight reading, ear training and performance. I help develop composers and creativity through a solid performance, theory, style education while allowing original creativity to flow freely with as few “rules and regulations” as possible. Most of my students participate in the California Certificate of Merit (TM) and the National Piano Playing Auditions (Guild) and many locally available competitive and non competitive events. My philosophy is: WINNING is a LOGICAL CONSEQUENCE OF PROPER PREPARATION. Therefore we FOCUS on the many layers of excellent preparations and PLAYING enjoyment. We never focus on “competing and placing” as such. This is the skill and know-how I am instilling in each of my students with a time efficient structural path to get there.
I am offering lessons via google video, skype or logitech; please email for details. I am offering regular weekly lessons and / or as needed problem solving lessons.
