Patrick began playing piano at the age of 5. In his teenage years, he found a love for music composition and music production. With this new avenue in music, he attended San Diego State University and graduated with a Bachelor of Music, emphasis on Music Recording Technology and Audio Design. Since graduating, Patrick has been teaching piano, songwriting and music production. He also works as a recording technician/studio musician for a band in LA and has performed at such venues as El Rey Theatre, Troubadour, and House of Blues. As a private teacher, Patrick instructs students of all ages and skill levels. Patrick’s philosophy is to infuse the fundamentals of piano playing (finger technique, music theory, sight reading and ear training) with creative lesson plans and projects. He believes that learning the piano should be a fun experience enjoyed by all!
