About Me

September 15, 2013 There is currently a waiting list for new students. Please use the contact page on my website if you want to be added to the list and I will be in touch as soon as a slot opens.

I have an extensive teaching history including 35 years of piano, accordion, and keyboard lessons. I have taught in public and private schools, summer camps, theater, and many other venues. I have experience with special education students and children with ADD, Asperger's, learning disabilities, as well as gifted children. For more information and photos see my website: (contact me).

Keyboard for Kids is also on facebook.

My Musical Education Background

I earned my Bachelor of Science in Music Education with honors from Rhode Island College. I have taken some post graduate classes as well including studies in children's literature. While directing School Age programs at the YMCA I attended many workshops about child behavior and learning difficulties.

In high school I performed with the accapella choir, woodwind ensenble, marching band, and concert band. In college I also played in the concert band and sang with the mixed chorus. I treasured those ensemble experiences and try to bring that sense of comraderie to my students now through frequent informal performances, allowing them to meet and support their fellow students.

Genres and Subjects Taught

I try to provide a variety of music. I find kids practice more when they like the music. For beginners I often write very easy versions of their favorites.

Lesson Rates

Half hour lessons are $29.00, payable monthly during the first week of each month. Lesson fees include books, downloads, and other materials. All lessons are taught in the studio on Broadway. I do not offer lessons in the home.

Ages / Skill Levels Taught

I occasionally have accepted students as young as four years old. I am often asked how to tell if younger students are able to take lessons. If they can write numbers and letters easily, and read simple words they are probably ready to start. I am happy to meet with prospective students if you are uncertain whether your child is ready to begin lessons.

I no longer teach adults. If you like, I can certainly recommend someone who does.

My Certifications and Awards

The award I am most proud of is the North Attleboro Cultural Council McKeil Memorial Award for contributions to the arts community.

My Musical Influences

I had a wonderful teacher as a child named Lorraine Bono. She is the reason I am teaching music today. She went above and beyond to give her students opportunities to try many different types of music.

I am very thankful to Tulio Gasperini for inspiring me to work hard and improve my technique. Thanks to him I was the first undergraduate at RIC to be awarded a full hour recital on the accordion.

My high school music teacher, Ronald Christianson, who taught me music appreciation and provided me with excellent instruction in music theory, as well as choir, band, and woodwind ensemble performance.
