My name is Jean and I have been teaching academically and privately for over 26 years. I have my Master’s in Musicology from California State University Fullerton. I teach for a variety of colleges and privately. When I am not teaching I love taking local hikes, anything involving animals, and cooking new recipes. I am also a pianist.
My teaching methodology centers around helping students become independent learners. Everyone learns differently so helping students find their way and succeed is the best part of my job. For beginners, we start with a solid foundation of technique, theory, and repertoire. At all other levels, we will start with assessing your goals and filling in any gaps. Most importantly, learning any musical instrument should be a pleasurable experience.

You can always think ahead and get a few things ready before your lessons. Make sure to tune your instrument before the lesson. Bring à a notepad and anything you might need to write down notes. We strongly recommend testing your video conference settings at least 15 min before each lesson to avoid any unwanted technical issues during the lesson.
