I build up technique and musicality, beginning with scales and instructional books which provide pieces of increasing difficulty. While this is a more traditionally classical method of learning, I also enjoy playing in other styles such as popular and anime music. Especially because of my personal interests, I am very open to teaching you the genres that you are interested in performing.

**Please send me a message to discuss scheduling and location before booking.

I have been a student of Michael’s for approximately 7 months. My only previous experience with violin had been one year in elementary school band class and 8 months with a private teacher. When my private teacher’s lesson schedule changed, I was introduced to Michael and was greatly impressed by his skill level and teaching style. I have learned so much more than I had expected in each lesson, like how to self-tune, use a metronome, shift, and various other techniques. Michael constantly offers feedback on how I can execute techniques better, and I feel that this helps me to learn more effectively. He is always challenging me by giving me harder pieces and scales. I have even been told by my high school orchestra conductor that I have improved so much and she is constantly surprised by how fast I am learning. I highly recommend having Michael as a teacher for anyone looking to learn how to play the violin.

Why do I teach piano?

Because it has been the greatest source of enjoyment, rejuvenation, and continued growth throughout my life, and I want to share that with everyone I can.

Why should you or your child take piano lessons with me?

Because I offer highly specialized lessons to each student, dependent on their needs and goals so that you too can benefit from a life filled with music. I offer lessons in many styles and supply all students with practical musical knowledge that will lead to full understanding and appreciation.

For young beginner students, students can expect to learn piano basics (note names, chords, etc.) and musical fundamentals, soon moving into learning full songs.

Jonathan is an incredible teacher and I feel lucky that he teaches in my area. Both my daughter and I are taking piano lessons with him. If I learned piano like he teaches when I was younger then I doubt I would have ever quit as a teenager.

We love coming to see Dena. We are only able to come once a month, but with all the techniques she gives to my 10 year old daughter, there is plenty to practice & she is already growing in her singing after less then 5 lessons. I would recommend anyone looking for a kind & excellent vocal instructor in our area to come to Dena. We are excited to continue our vocal journey with her.

A wonderful teacher and perfect for kids!
