Much of my teaching for piano focuses on a student’s approach and relationship with the keyboard. Through different pieces, scales, arpeggios, and technical exercises, the students learn different ways to play and control the sounds they make on the piano. With a specialty in classical music, I use classical pieces to work on various concepts the students are focusing on, but can also find modern pieces at a student’s request. By using different pieces from different eras, I’m able to teach how the styles differ and how that can change one’s interpretation.
I teach at the Arteta Music School in Barakaldo, Spain, which is the only school in Barakaldo with ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) certification. At the school, we help those participating prepare for the exams with their pieces, scales, arpeggios, sight-reading, ear training, and theory.
