Welcome!

Does your child love music? Do they sing or dance along to their favorite song? Maybe they even ask about taking music lessons all the time?

There's just one problem....

Piano lessons are hard, right? Practicing is a point of contention. Teachers are strict. Progress can seem slow.

Not to worry....

I've solved all of those problems!

At the Habana Music Studio:

  • My students learn that practicing isn't just easy... it's fun! Because of this, they'll want to practice at home

  • I teach in way that's very supportive, so your child feels comfortable with moving at his or her own pace and won't be afraid of making mistakes

  • My students make quick progress and get to enjoy playing real music right away

My Why (Philosophy)

I use music as a medium to create and nurture relationships. As a teacher (my most normal and favorite role) I seek to be 'proactively empathetic' - this means that everything that I do is 110% oriented towards serving and benefitting my students.

This parent said it best

'One of my friends asked "Why do you pay so much money for your kid to play the piano?"

Well I have a confession to make; I don't pay for my kid to play the piano. Personally, I couldn't care less about what instrument they play.

So, what am I paying for?

 

  • I pay for those moments when my kid becomes so tired they want to quit but don't.
     

  • I pay for those days when my kid comes home from school and is "too tired" to do their lesson but they go anyway.
     

  • I pay for my kid to learn to be disciplined, focused, and dedicated.
     

  • I pay for my kid to learn to take care of her body and instrument.
     

  • I pay for my kid to learn to work with others and to be a good teammate, gracious in failure, and humble in success.
     

  • I pay for my kid to learn to deal with disappointment when she doesn't get that recognition she'd hope for, but still she goes back week after week giving it her best shot.

  • I pay for my kid to learn to make and accomplish goals.

  • I pay for my kid to respect, not only themselves, but their teachers and fellow young musicians.

  • I pay for my kid to learn that it takes hours and hours, years and years of hard work and practice to play beautifully and that success does not happen overnight.
     

  • I pay for my kid to be proud of small achievements, and to work towards long term goals.
     

  • I pay for the opportunity my kid has and will have to make life-long friendships, create lifelong memories, to be as proud of her achievements as I am.
     

  • I pay so my kid can be creating something beautiful instead of sitting in front of a screen...


... I could go on but, to be short, I don't pay for piano playing; I pay for the opportunities that learning to play piano provides my kid with, to develop attributes that will serve her well throughout her life and give her the opportunity to bless the lives of others. From what I have seen so far I think it is a great investment!
