My primary goal as a piano teacher is to instill in my students a love of music in general, and the piano in particular. To achieve this goal, I keep lessons as interactive as possible and strive to maintain open communication between the student and myself. In this way I will be able to do two things: gain a vision of what my students want to achieve, and broaden the horizons of their goals. In this broadening will be included technique, theory (both written and aural), and of course great repertoire with opportunities to perform.
