I offer music lessons for students of all ages. Along with private lessons, I have also taught clinics, masterclasses, and music ensembles since 2011. Some of my past students have won auditions for the Southern California School Band and Orchestra Association (SCSBOA) Honor Bands and gone on to pursue music degrees in schools such as Eastman, UCLA, and Cal State Long Beach. Along with auditions, competitions, and festival opportunities, my students have the option of performing in casual group settings and a studio recital at the end of the school year.

During the course of these music lessons, I train students to become technically proficient with their instrument, expand their knowledge through music theory, history, and ear training, and help develop their musicality through etudes, chamber music, and solos. I have found that students who take private lessons regularly end up better equipped to tackle all sorts of challenges and adopt creative methods in solving problems within or outside of music.

Here are some important questions to consider before starting music lessons:

1) What are my goals from taking weekly private lessons?

2) Can I commit to practicing every day? 10-20 minutes for younger beginners, 20-60 mins for older or more advanced students, 90+ minutes for students pursuing a career in music performance?

3) Do I enjoy listening to music and attending live concerts? Am I open to performing in recitals and group performances?

Here are the music styles I teach for private lessons:

Western Classical music

New music

Popular music

Church hymns

Film and video game music
