Where are Lessons Offered
In Teacher Studio
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.
