Hi, my students call me Ms. Leila.


I’m drawn to discovering innovative teaching methods to encourage you to stick to the bench for life. Customizing lessons to suit your interests is a priority and therefore I offer “blended” instruction in Classical, Jazz, and Pop along with creativity beyond the page.

Students not only have a private lesson but an Off-Bench Time as well--it’s optional for adult students. Assignments during this time include reinforcement of concepts discussed at lessons, music history, sight reading, ear training and more. Most often exercises are completed on the iPad, my favorite teaching assistant, that offers gamification: learning through gaming!

Enjoy playing on my Kawaii upright, Clavinova CVP 505 and Yamaha C6 grand piano affectionately called “Bella.”

Through innovative instruction, high quality instruments, the latest tech tools, and savvy practice tips, discover and develop your full potential at the keys. My goal is that you find making music at the piano bench irresistible.

Musically yours,

Ms. Leila
