Learn Piano

Wherever I perform, people approach me after the show, saying they'd wished they'd taken music lessons or not quit them so early.

Learning a new instrument and playing music is fun!  But it also takes time and a certain amount of commitment.  The most effective way to develop your musical abilities is to hire a music teacher to:

  • Set goals and deadlines, then help you reach them

  • Coach you weekly, offering support & encouragement

  • Share decades of music experience, guide you to faster improvement

  • Help you learn pop music by the artists you love

  • Make learning less solitary and more fun

Give me a call and let's get started!
