The Three Essentials

Piano, Theory, and CompositionLessons in-person and online

Whatever your musical goals are, the way to achieve them is through a musical education founded on the three essentials: piano, theory, and composition.

Piano is the best instrument for learning theory because it provides a concrete, visual base for abstracts concepts. Theory study helps students learn music faster and understand it more, resulting in more confidence and increased artistry. Composition unlocks musical creativity and brings together both theory and performance.
