John Altenbernd

Emmy award winning composer who just happens to teach piano to all ages.
Teaching Philosophy

I teach how I was taught from my first piano teacher; have fun and let the student explore their interests. The hardest thing for a piano student to learn is the mind and body connection with their hands. Instead of getting frustrated at making mistakes I make the students understand what's going on and then give them techniques how to make practicing more productive. Thus, they see their progress faster and enjoy!

Experience

Have a degree in Music Industry, a professional composer/pianist with five CDs under the pseudonym, "Aldo". Have six years of teaching piano under my belt and currently teach in Minneapolis, MN area. Have a Emmy for a documentary in 2002, "Delafield", that I provided the score.

Credentials

Music Industry Degree, Moorhead State University, Moorhead, MN 1992.
2002 Upper Midwest Regional Emmy Award for "Delafield".
