About Me

I have been teaching piano for approximately 40 years. I've had experience with all ages and levels of students. I am also a church organist and music director and I have taught music in the Harford County School System for 24 years. I have participated in the Pennsylvania Piano Student Festival as an adjudicator. I am a member of the Baltimore Music Teachers Association, Maryland State Teachers Association, Greater Baltimore Music Teachers Assoc. ,Harford County Music Teachers Association , National Federation of Music Clubs, Bach in Baltimore Chorus, Welsh Choir in Delta Pa. Early Music Society of Baltimore and the American Guild of Organist.

My Musical Education Background

My Music Degree is from the College of Notre Dame University in Baltimore,Maryland. I have continued my piano studies throughout the years with notable professors. I attend piano teaching workshops on a regular basis to stay up-to-date with the new teaching materials.

Genres and Subjects Taught

My students are taught a complete knowledge of music theory. The fundamentals of scales, chord structures, arpeggios etc. are taught in each lesson. Musical technique develops with these fundamentals. I teach students a variety of music genres depending on the age and musical development of each student. As students progress, they will be studying a variety of music styles such as Jazz, Contemporary, Baroque, Classical, Romantic, Modern and if students request, hymn playing technics are also taught.

Lesson Rates

I teach a 45 minute class but 30 or 60 minute classes are an option. In my experience, students  6 years of age depending on their maturity level, do better with a 30 minute lesson then progress to 45 minutes as they develop and mature. 60 minutes: $60.00 -  45 minutes: $45.00.  - 30 minutes: $35.00

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

I teach students from ages 6 years and up.

My Certifications and Awards

I am certified in Music Education and English

Duke Thompson (Maryland Music Conservatory)

I cannot fail to give credit to Mrs. Marie Heck my first music instructor who inspired me with her gentle manner and her love of teaching.

Student Reviews

Abington, MD

Jean is a wonderful teacher. She's dedicated and patient with her students. With a great music background, Jean has given our kids (two of her students) great music & piano techniques/methodology and a way to approach music that is by far superior to that of any of the previous piano teachers. She is agile in her approach to teaching piano with the belief that not one teaching method is applicable to all kids. - Parent of Lanna & MaiLina
