Where are Lessons Offered
In Teacher Studio
In Student Home
I have over 15 years of piano teaching experience in Brecksville and Stow. I have my Bachelors and Masters degrees from Northwestern University and believe strongly in keeping myself current by attending teachers' workshops.
While a good grounding in the classics makes sense when studying the piano (Bach, Beethoven, etc.), I also expose my students to many kinds of piano music (jazz, pop, folk, sacred, etc.) so they can discover what speaks to them! There is so much to choose from these days and I am open to where the students want to go, as long as they are willing to work diligently and continue to make progress.
I teach 45 minute lessons for those 8 years and older, 30 minute lessons for younger students and busy adults! This gives us the time to work on technique (the physical aspects of playing the piano), theory (the reading of music) and the music pieces themselves.
Music can have such a profound influence on a person - giving him/her much joy and a sense of accomplishment! Music instruction teaches not only the proper way to play the instrument, but valuable life skills like persistence, consistency, time management, self-discipline and self-motivation. Piano teachers have the privilege of spending one-on-one time with your child, often for many years, so it is important to find one that you and your child feel good about.

My Musical Influences
My lovely mother, Mrs. Jackie Willertz, who is currently teaching piano lessons from her home in Michigan, was my first and best influence growing up.
My current piano teacher, Mrs. Nancy Bachus, keeps me motivated and inspired! I owe her a great debt for her gift of technical skills especially.
Countless musical friends and colleagues have demonstrated the art of musical excellence in combination with the sincere desire to improve the lives of the people they touch.
