I am an music instructor with 27 years of experience. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Sacred Music with a major in Voice. I have been playing piano for 35 years with having been an accompanist for choirs and soloists and a pianist at weddings and churches. I am a believer that anyone can learn piano and improve their abilities! I also know that a knowledge of music and music theory go together to improve one’s learning ability in any area of his/her life. The student and I would work together. I don’t just teach the “how to”, I help and encourage taking time at the lesson to learn and understand the music. I am a huge advocate of building the student’s skills during the lesson time and using the rest of the week on their own to continue to review the skills they have already acquired. I have a piano recital once a year in the spring. 2 or 3 months ahead, we decide on a song they like that will show off their acquired skills. I look forward to being your teacher! We will have fun learning!

  • Lesson Details *
    I am a friendly person and like to put everyone at ease. I try to adapt to each student’s learning style. As I have hinted at in my bio, I teach the skills and then we work together on these skills during the lesson. The idea is for the knowledge and skills to come together before the student tries on their own. The student actually learns quicker this way and we repeat lessons much less. The student also desires to learn when they see those goals being attained at a quicker pace. I usually average one lesson book every 2-3 months, depending on the student.
  • Specialties *
    I have taught every method available for piano. My preference is Faber & Faber. For more advanced students we create our own curriculum.
