That’s right. I’m now set up for the new video teaching/chat service from Google called HELPOUTS. Whether you have a quick question, would like an occasional coaching, or are interested in traditional, weekly piano lessons, I‘m here to help. Spread the word!
Google Helpouts has experts available on every subject/skill you can think of. It’s pretty cool. You can pay by the minute or in 15 minute increments.
(If you’re an expert on something, you could probably teach on there, too.)
All you need is a piano and a webcam. Check it out.
ABOUT MY STUDIO
Topics can include anything piano-related, such as technique (scales, arpeggios, double-notes, chords, etudes), repertoire/interpretation, theory, history, memorization, performance skills/anxiety, competition/audition/performance preparation, practicing skills, concerti, chamber music, accompaniment, etc. I particularly enjoy helping pianists alleviate tension in their playing and avoid injury.
Are you a teacher yourself, and have a question about teaching a particular piece or technique? I can help with that, too.
The stream will begin just before 8:00 pm, EST on October 28, 2013.

Friends, I’m pleased to announce my newest recording — in fact, another world premiere recording!
A new piece by Brahms was recently discovered, entitled “Albumblatt.” Lost in time, this work was tucked away in a hotel guestbook by Brahms himself in 1853. Conductor and musicologist Christopher Hogwood is credited with its discovery in late 2011.
In the past year, it has been performed live here and there, but I offer you the FIRST and ONLY commercially available recording of this short work. I recorded it on my personal Steinway D in Morgan Hall at Kennesaw University. It’s a single; only $.99 on iTunes.
I’m currently finalizing an entire album of Schubert and Brahms to be released later this year, but I thought I would go ahead and release this single.
Please enjoy! And purchase! And leave me a great review!
