Please contact me for my hourly rates and availability. Instruction is usually offered in my home studio (on a Yamaha G2 Baby Grand) in the Palms/Culver City area, but if that’s not feasible for you, I can also travel to your neck of the woods (a convenience fee will be added) depending on my availability and schedule. Students not within commuting-distance are offered highly effective (and just as fun as the real thing!) virtual lessons via Zoom, Facetime, WhatsApp, or Skype. So, if you live outside of Los Angeles and looking to learn piano, don’t worry, I got you covered.
