Welcome to my teaching studio!
With 41 years of experience teaching private music students, 14 years of experience teaching children in K-12 schools, and 48 years as a professional performer, I bring something special to your or your child's music instruction. I offer piano lessons, saxophone lessons and harmonica lessons for children and adults. I teach classical, blues, boogie-woogie, rock, ragtime, pop, folk and jazz to all ages, 5-95 years old, and to all ability levels, beginner to advanced. Chord theory and composition instruction is also available. The way I work with my students is designed to make the lessons enriching and motivating. Every lesson will mix instruction and coaching with keen observance, patience and caring, creating a lively and fun learning environment. All the teaching is live, one-on-one music lessons. The remote lessons are not recorded videos.
Success in learning your instrument is a result of three things: 1)practice, 2)your ability and 3)a good instructor. To hear what others are saying about that 3rd leg in this tripod of musical success please see the Testimonial page.
