Q. Have you ever had a teacher or tutor?
Q. As a self-taught pianist, do you have any advice for others on how to improve their piano skills?
A. I believe anyone can teach themselves to play an instrument. You just need to believe in yourself and PRACTICE! Practice as often as you can and I find that practicing music that you love will dramatically speed up the learning process.
Q. Where do you get your sheet music for your YouTube covers?
A. Mostly, I print some basic sheets off of the web and then I improvise whatever feels right in the moment.
Q. Who do you consider to be some of your biggest musical influences?
A. Brian Crain without a doubt! Recently though, I’ve been really enjoying Beethoven and Chopin. Rob Costlow and Yiruma are some big influences too.
Q. Have you always wanted to be a professional musician?
A. No. When I was 8, I actually wanted to grow up to teach Latin. But music is my true passion now.
