One of the services I provide to locals is Piano Lessons.
I began studying the Piano when I was seven years old: the “age of reason”. By the time I reached High School, I was attempting to compose and sought side work as a piano instructor to small children. By the time I reach adult hood I had studied with several instructors, one was Elane Gibson, a virtuoso who specialized in the Romantic Period, particularly Scriabin. I had also composed music for a dance sequence for a play our High school produced: “Dark of the Moon”. I also entered several song writing competitions, one recording assisted by Trish Mathews. Although the actual recording was lost, I recall the afternoon of re-takes in my parent’s living room.
Adulthood, marriage and kids had it’s way with me, I stopped practicing and got rusty with my fingers. It wasn’t until the early nineties I took up teaching again. I had a dozen students in a Montessori School in Norco, California before I moved to Virginia in ’92.
I currently live in Newport News, Virginia and teach music to children and adults focusing on early instruction and building into a comprehensive understanding in music theory and practice. Although I teach primarily the Piano, much is translated into Guitar and the Drum, each contributing a different angel of perspective in music.
