Hoffman Academy Reel
The Hoffman Academy is an online piano school based out of Portland, OR. While the school has about 15 music teachers, the owner Joseph Hoffman also uses his methods to teach online with recorded piano video lessons. Geared towards younger and beginning piano students, the 120+ video lessons are all free to watch, the only expense are the downloadable paper materials. This reel was edited to show the many ways that the Hoffman Academy uses video and graphics to teach piano; including history, games, skits and music reading. In addition to these online lessons, I am also the videographer for blog posts, performances and music videos at the physical academy as well.

Personal Project. The Morrison bridge is my bridge, I have walked, biked, bussed and driven over this bridge more than any other in the world. When the Carnival is in town I especially love walking right up alongside the big wheel on a warm summer night.
