About Me

I teach all ages and all levels. I've had over 35 years experience teaching students from 3 years old through 82 years old! They include starting from the very beginning, transfer students of any level or background, and up through advanced students who may wish to go to college as a music major.

My Musical Education Background

Bachelor of Music degree in piano performance from Oberlin Conservatory of Music in Oberlin, Ohio

Studied the Suzuki Piano method of teaching at the Talent Education Institute in Matsumoto, Japan with the founders of the method, Dr. Shinichi Suzuki and Dr. Haruko Kataoka

Genres and Subjects Taught

I teach how to play the piano beautifully through classical music, folk songs, church music both traditional and contemporary, almost any genre except jazz. I offer a free informational session in the very beginning to inform you about different options and to find out what your preferences may be.

Lesson Rates

$120/month which includes 30 minute individual lesson plus 30 minute observation of my teaching another student before or after. your leson. The observation helps to reinforce the same basic principles and motivates them to learn other repertoire, The monthly fee also includes  quarterly group lessons which include a performance by each student of a polished piece and compliments from the other students.  It is followed by refreshments and social time to get to know other students, and encourage each other.  I create a relaxed atomosphere and a feeling that we are all learning together, rather than competition.  The group lesson replaces the  individual lesson for that week.  It helps students get relaxed about performing in a smaller group.  We have one formal annual recital for the whole studio.  (No one is required to perform if they don't wish to).

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

I teach all ages and all levels. I've had over 35 years experience teaching students from 5 years old and through adults. They include starting from the very beginning, transfer students of any level or background, and up through advanced students who may wish to go to college as a music major.

I also studied  and played trio chamber music  (violinist, cellist, and pianist) coached by the1st cellist in the Pittsburgh Symphony.
