Worldwide performing jazz pianist with a pedagogical experience gives classes in Boston.

Methodology

My teaching objective is to create a new generation of musicians, who will change the music of the future. I perceive it as a true mission, because the artists are those who provide the world with beauty, truth and freedom.

During my classes we are working on how we can build and develop your abilities and technique on the solid basics and at the same time remain open to explore. I will provide you with solid information about classical or jazz music, voicings, improvisation in different styles, rhythm and time but apart from that every class I prepare something that can ignite the interests, something that they you can explore on your own and something that you can practice for life - looking for some innovative paths and interesting solutions.
