Instructor

My classes are adapted to the individual needs of students, trying to get to the next level. The development in the harmonic and melodic language is key to addressing the music - developing new voicings, reharmonizing, new ways of phrasing, developing the way rhythmic accompaniments work, developing piano technique, etc. I also give classes for those whose main instrument is not the piano and need an initiation to compose and make their own music with a basic knowledge of the piano.
