My Musical Education Background
I am a member of the Interior Alaska Keyboard Teachers and Alaska Music Teachers' Association. I have been teaching piano for over 20 years. My first teaching position was in Mt. Pleasant, TX. I taught for 4 years there. I then moved to Redding, CA, and taught for 6 years. I finally moved to the Fairbanks area and have been teaching for 10 years. I have been playing in churches since 1985, and I have also played the keyboard in a couple small bands in California.
Genres and Subjects Taught
B Sharp Studio offers piano lessons for students of all ages, from beginner to intermediate level. B Sharp Studio works with students at their own pace and level. Although we do require regular practice and dedication to the program, at B Sharp Studio, we believe that music is an integral part of a person's life. It is our goal to help our piano students become the best musicians they can be, based on a solid foundation of note-reading, rhythmic skills, ear training, music theory, and artistic expression.
B Sharp Studio offers 1/2 hour or hour lessons for students once a week. 1/2 hour lessons are $20 per lesson. 3/4 hour lessons are $30 per lesson. Full hour lessons are $40 per lesson. Recitals/ performances are scheduled two times per year to give students a chance to perform in front of an audience and perfect one or two more advanced musical pieces.
Ages / Skill Levels Taught
All age levels are accepted. My belief is an individual is never too young or too old to learn music if the interest and desire is present.

I highly recommend Heather Weber as a piano teacher. My children have been taking piano lessons from her for three years. Heather not only knows how to play the piano, but she is a great teacher. She has many years of experience as a piano teacher; even knowing that, I still am amazed at the progress my children are making under her guidance. Heather loves music, and she manages to portray that to her students. I would recommend Heather Weber to anyone who wants to learn piano. Sincerely, Lisa McNutt
