My Piano History

I have had 3 years of formal instruction by a classical piano teacher at Fountain Valley Music School. This was back about eighteen years ago. I went through the entire piano course, for about three years. I have taken and passed one semester of Basic Music Theory 115, Diatonic Music Theory 116. and Music Appreciation 101 at Golden West College. I continue to study piano playing technique up till the present day. Since 2008 I have taught piano. I taught for four years. I evolved a passion for piano for over 18 years. I also have spent time in college studying music theory, and music history. And I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Creative Writing.

Eligible Students

Please make a commitment to study the piano for at least 1-3 years. A faster student may require less time, but it’s usually a minimum of 2 years. You will have to practice a little each week, in the beginning 12-20 minutes with be sufficient. I teach only with a book, and for adults it’s a series of three books, afterwards your piano course will be complete with me. So this is not an ongoing piano lesson forever it will last a max of about three years. When the book series are completed so are we; and you graduate.

The best fit for my lessons are patient people, people that persevere, and who value Baroque, Classical, and Romantic Music.

If those styles are in the books, in they are too a very small extent then th" less...
