A Word from the Teacher

Why do we take music lessons?

As someone who has been surrounded by music most of his life, I can say (with a strong degree of bias) that it was something I was extremely lucky to have experienced as a young boy. Aside from the obvious career path I took, my journey with learning the piano profoundly influenced how I grew up and shaped the person who I am today.

We do it because it is rewarding. We are constantly discovering something new; both about the music we are playing and about ourselves and our capabilities. Through this process of learning and development, by experiencing music, we come out as a different person.

While all my students do music for different reasons and play at different levels, it is my duty as the teacher to help them make the most of their individual abilities and potential, and to share my knowledge so that they too may develop this same appreciation I have towards this wonderful art. And for those who may choose to do music professionally, it is my responsibility to provide them with all the opportunities and a strong pianistic foundation to help further their pursuit.

I believe music is a gift that all people can and should experience.
