***Will travel to your home***
Professional performer with a BFA degree in music and a BA in education. After trying to reach 30 or more students in a classroom, I find getting to really know students as individuals and working with them one-on-one is much more satisfying for both of us. I can guarantee success to anyone. I teach in the privacy of your home. My emphasis is on fundamental skills and techniques. It is an easy step-by-step course. You will learn to play by ear as well as by note. My course includes theory, composition, arranging, improvising and expression.
