In my more than three decades of teaching piano, I've helped thousands of music lovers begin their journey into playing instruments. Based on my experience of student-centered teaching, I have created my own very successful and creative approach to teaching piano, which encourages creativity and love for music, and taps into our natural musical selves. 

As a consultant for www.topmusic.co, my piano teaching methods are now spreading to piano teachers all over the world. And as Head Educator for Musical U, I am writing and directing online music education courses enjoyed worldwide by thousands.
Students will be expected to complete the daily piano practice exercises given. This should take between 10 and 20 minutes a day.
Students will be seated at their piano or keyboard during class. It is important that they are able to see the instructor clearly and easily, if possible without turning away from their keyboards.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
