In Teacher Studio
I am very enthusiastic about teaching piano! I love creating music and watching children/adults enjoy and the light shine through their faces as they play and love every moment of it! I will create a very positive, exciting, creative, and fun atmosphere! Learning to play music is all about what comes from your heart.

My Musical Influences
I grew up listening to Rogers and Hammerstein, Walt Disney, classics from Jack London movies, Julie Andrews, John Williams, his incredible writing for Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean . Etc.. He is my true inspiration. I also enjoy: Jimmy Hendrix, The beach boys, (seen them in concert) Beatles, John Lennon, Billy Joel, I love the 90s, oldies and throwbacks, Elvis Presley, Rick Nelson, Frank Sinatra etc.. And many, many more.. I like modern music such as: rap, hiphop, skrillex, and some country. Now my favorite type of music would consist of piano, violin, symphonic works from: Beethoven,(sonatas and minuets) Hadyn, Mozart, Chopin,( his scherzos and etudes) Scriabin, Fran's Listz, Rachmaninoff,(many of his etude tableaux) Grieg, (concerto in A minor) Stravinsky, (especially his firebird suite for piano) Prokofiev, etc I could go on forever and forever but that's a little bit of the musical background I have.
