Classical Piano Lessons

Levels Taught: Intermediate, Advanced

The curriculum will cover music from the romantic, classical, and baroque eras. The way that lessons are organized will ensure that students have a solid grasp of technique as well as stylistic understanding. Additionally, I will work with each student to identify and overcome any relevant weaknesses, and lessons will be tailored for each individual. Usually, I let the pupils choose a composition that appeals to them as well.
