Over 20 years of Piano teaching experience
of all student ages and levels. I started
piano studies at age 3 in a family of
accomplished musicians. Graduated from
Tirana Conservatory of Music for piano and
composition in 1988. Continued my studies in
Vienna, Austria by the Universitat fur Music
und darstellende Kunst from 1990-1992, while
teaching private piano lessons on the site.
From 1992 until 2004 I held the position as
a Piano Instructor at Wenher's School of the
Arts, during which time several of my
students won state and local piano
competitions and received scholarships to
further their piano studies. From 1998 -
2008, I performed, accompanied, and taught
piano at Jacksonville University. Currently,
I teach piano at my private home studio and
hold the position of the Music Director at
Prince of Peace Church.
My piano method is mainly classical.
However, my students play a variety of
styles and genres and are exposed to a broad
spectrum of musical styles. I also teach
music theory and use Logic software for
audio and Sibelius for music notation.
I am a continuing member of the National
Federation of Music Clubs. Each year almost
all of my students compete in the Regional
and State competitions. In the past years
(since 1994) all of my students have
received a superior rating and several have
additionally won at the State level.
I believe that every student is unique in
their way of learning, understanding, and
appreciating music. Given this, I always try
to develop a way to help each student
achieve their musical goals according to
their personality and musical taste. As a
pianist, I see music as an inspiration that
comes from our hearts and flows through our
fingers and I have tried my best to convey
that thought to my students throughout all
my years of teaching.
