the lessons

I teach Piano, Music Theory, Guitar and Composition private lessons for all ages, in English and Spanish, in NYC area. I travel to the student's home, as well as receive students at my studio in Brooklyn.

I teach a big array of styles including Jazz, Classical, Blues and Pop. The education I provide is customized to the student's -and parent’s- goals and aspirations. I offer performance opportunities.



Music is an infinitely complex and wonderful world which is taught in so many different ways. From my vast experience both being taught by great mentors, as well as teaching students, I’ve learned to distinguish which methods are more effective and stimulating, at each stage of learning. I believe music should be learned through appreciation, passion, and resonance with the student’s interests. That’s what I do.

I’ve been teaching private lessons for all ages since 2009 as well as
providing various clinics, workshops and master classes. My teaching is influenced
by the musical education I received in Berklee College of Music as well as
by many other methodologies I’ve been exposed to throughout my life. My teaching of children
is also greatly influenced by years of experience at non-formal children education communities and scouts.

I find what the student is passionate about and build from there a process of deep and creative learning, while at the same time laying down the foundations for each level and style.
