Learn to play the Piano within 20hrs if you are an absolute beginner.

Methodology

Extremely Patient, friendly and fun approach towards teaching.
Understanding your requirements and trying to help you achieve your goals is my way to go. I mostly played at church growing up as a keyboardist.
I use both traditional methods and Ear training methods to teach the piano and Keys. If you're looking for Worship style playing, I'd be your catch.

Background

I'm a Music teacher/ Producer and a performer from Bangalore. I am a Multi Instrumentalist and I teach Piano and Keys both in Suzuki (Ear training Method). I have taught from ages 3 to 60 year olds over the past 12 years.
