My Teaching Philosophy

If you've had a chance to read any of my articles, you'll soon discover that I don't prescribe to the "traditional" way of doing things on the piano. For example, I don't believe it's particularly important to know scales and exercises.

What I do believe to be important is your ability to connect with your source and find the music that is uniquely you. This is why I emphasize improvisation skills so much. Learning how to improvise is the key skill you need to learn to trust in your inner voice and to find your own special way of playing piano.
