I teach beginning piano at The Musical Offering in Chicago. My approach to beginning piano is not only to instill a love of music at a young age but also to build a foundation of musical growth that will extend to different musical disciplines, whether it is to continue with piano or to move onto a different musical instrument.
I teach out of a variety of method books to develop a well-rounded musical education including The Bastien Method, The Music Tree Method, Faber Piano Adventure, as well as others depending on the students' needs.
