My two passions in life are music and children, and I love combining those passions in teaching private music lessons. I teach in both Loves Park and the surrounding area. I have worked with children in various settings for the last 14 years and enjoy finding ways to help each child succeed and have continued motivation for improving their skills and increasing their enjoyment of music.
My Musical Education Background
I graduated with a B.A. in Music Ministry and a minor in Piano Pedagogy. I have taught piano to students ranging in age from 4-adult in both private and group lessons.
Genres and Subjects Taught
Classical. Church music. Popular music. Music theory. Note reading. Ear training.
I am very flexible in what I teach. I want my students to enjoy practicing and allow them choice in what songs they will learn in addition to the pieces I chose that will help them progress.
