TEACHING PHILOSOPHY

 

I want all of my students to leave my studio as better educated, more compassionate, more open, and more emotionally equipped human beings.  I am happy if my students want to pursue music as a career, (my students have been admitted to The Royal Conservatory, University of Michigan, Interlochen Arts High School, USC, Northwestern, and more).  I am also happy if they are just want to learn more about piano or composition, or their favorite song.  

I teach students of all ages and skill levels, and am open to all types of music, from film to video game to classical to pop.  I am interested in how these genres connect and overlap.  I integrate my students' interests in their lessons through piano performance repertoire and music compositions assignments.  

The benefits of music lessons are astounding: they increase your IQ, language skills, test taking skills, concentration, emotional control, spatial-temporal skills, brain region communication, and on and on.  But for me, the most important thing is that you get to work on a lifelong skill and build an appreciation and fluency in one of life's great joys, music.
