Philosophy: I consider myself a guide . I like to plant the seed of curiosity in the student, and encourage him/her to discover what is posible, while learning how to play the piano

I m happy to say that my methods work , and that while  having a good time in class, my students learn how to read music, from day one. Also proper technique, and hand position.

Currently accepting students at all levels and all ages
Also serving the following suburban areas: Flossmore, Olympia Fields, Elmhurst, Wimetka, Glenview, Sauganash and Park Ridge.
