What I do

I'm an independent music teacher just like you and understand the challenges and joys that come with teaching a multitude of ages, personalities, and abilities. I also understand that teachers can feel isolated, either geographically or through a lack of confidence or knowledge. This is exactly why I started the Underground Conservatory.

I offer lessons in person and online, do private masterclasses (in person) for other teachers and their students, evaluate student videos, tutor theory, and help piano teachers through their certification process. It's my goal to stand in the gap as a trusted mentor who helps guide other teachers towards their professional goals. It's that simple. 

The cost is $60/hour, payable through PayPal.
