I have decades of experience with students in classrooms, studios, and in workshops and master classes. My creative projects have been in the US, Europe, and Japan.
Instruments: Piano
Genre/Style(s): piano (classical and jazz)
music technology
Ability Levels: Beginners to Advanced


I've taught 1000s of students in universities in the United States and Europe. I offer a friendly, personalised learning experience leading to skills at the piano and the ability to improvise. I include improvisation in lessons because all of the great composers–Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, and others–were known in their time for their ability to improvise. It's a bit of a lost art but it was once an essential part of pianism.

Bespoke, personalised lessons–Skype or in studio–are at least 60 minutes long and up to 120 minutes depending on your needs and interests. Lessons include open access to me via email–every day in between lessons, weekends included, if you wish.
