My primary goal is to make learning to play the piano fulfilling and fun! I believe that music is a language. And like any language there are many basics that must be mastered. I attempt to cover all areas of musicianship: theory, technique, analysis, harmony, ear-training, sigh-reading, performance, and comprehensive study of musical literature in a progressive fashion. The study of music has a profound impact not only in one’s emotional and spiritual life, but studies have shown that it utilizes much of the brain making it valuable in all areas of development. I believe that this makes it essential for young and old.
