About Me

There is a certain way that a piano teacher can act that a child will find delightful. This manner will inspire children to try things that they are sure they cannot do on their own. My manner is warm, gentle and infused with humor. My goal is to find a child's comfort zone at the piano, guard it and teach within it.

The method books I use have been thoroughly researched and many, many games and activities are included so that theory, once introduced, is reinforced in ways that are fun for the kids - and fun for me. It's important to me that teaching children to play the piano includes 1/4 cup patience, a teaspoon of wonder, and a healthy dollop of playfulness folded into a base of exactly the right curriculum for that child.

My Musical Education Background

I have a BA in both Piano Performance and Education and have been teaching for about 15 years. I also play the Celtic harp.

Available for weddings, memorial services, and retirement center events - both piano and Celtic harp

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

Students who begin at the age of 8 or 9 tend to move easily through the beginning piano courses. If, however, you have a 5 or 6-year-old who seems eager, I'm willing to help access their readiness. Parental support is one of the most important factors leading to successful and eager piano students. If you are willing to be part of the process at home, provide open time in your weekly schedule for practice and are willing to keep your instrument in good working order, your student will be ready for lessons each week and able to enjoy steady progress. If you have a transfer student, please try to bring an assessment of your student's progress from your previous teacher. It may be necessary to schedule lessons twice a week until your transfer student is ready for once-a-week lessons. Students who go through several teachers pick up habits that are hard to change and they will require extra time for the full benefit of quality music study.
