The piano is such a wonderful instrument; whether we want to play a solo piece or accompany other instrumentsit's always a joy to play!

Through years of learning and teaching experience(s), I realize sometimes it's hard to play piano without sheet music; therefore, I also include "play by ear techniques" to my piano lesson(s), in order for students to play the songs they like without the sheet music.
No matter if you want to be a better karaoke singer, professional singer, or just want to learn your favorite tunes, I can help you understand your own voice and develop its potential in a comfortable and non judgmental setting.
