About Me

I am passionate about music and I love to teach. With my patient, encouraging and positive teaching style anyone can learn to play the piano. My teaching methods are very comprehensive. I help the student to form that solid foundation necessary to bring success in piano playing and a lifetime of happiness found in music.

My Musical Education Background

I love playing & teaching piano. I have been involved in teaching and working with children for much of my life. During high school I ran the student preschool project and began teaching flute and piano in 1979. Then in 1982 I added teaching private and group piano lessons to young children, ages 4 to 9. I have also loved my 14 plus years spent volunteering in my church as Chorister and Pianist for the children’s Sunday School and Choir accompanist. I come from a family of entertainers with an Uncle who was in Frank Sinatra’s Orchestra, another Uncle who was the voice of Fred Flinstone, Opera singers, Movie Director, Symphony Orchestra, actors and actresses, dancers, composers, and even a silent film actress! I have accompanied professional musicians, provided wedding music and played chamber music, and my own Mother was an accomplished pianist.
Forty-seven years and counting playing the piano. I received a Certificate of Merit in Consumer and Family Studies 1980. I have a Bachelor of Music in Piano Pedagogy and am currently working on a Bachelor of Science in Child Development Family Relations. My family and I have had much fun in the 10 years I spent homeschooling 7 of my 9 children. We have 5 beautiful grandchildren! My time spent with children has greatly enriched my life and I anticipate always being involved with them.

Genres and Subjects Taught

 

Piano Lessons through A Music House are an enjoyable way to access all the great benefits that music offers.  Each piano lesson is positive, encouraging and non stressful.  Lessons are tailored to the student's specific needs and each lesson is given in the way that the student learns best.  Students will find their lessons fun, engaging and very gratifying.  In addition to the required music, students will be able to choose music that inspires them.  How exciting to be able to play your all time favorite songs!

With a strong classical basis, all musical genres can be enhanced and available. I am careful to give you a firm foundation of theory, ear training, technique and performance practice. Additionally I would be happy to teach whatever types of music you want to learn--classical, modern, pop, country, smooth jazz...bring your ideas and we will find what's right for you!
