My Musical Influences
I have a variety of musical influences starting from gospel accompaniment on the piano at an early age. Beatles, classic rock in the 50's and 60's. Classical piano and pipe organ at Northern Illinois University. Composers "Bach, Buxtehude, Pachelbel" to name a few. Favorite piano composers: "Bach, Chopin, Debussy, Beethoven, Joplin, Billy Joel. I enjoy ragtime blues. I currently play the hammered dulcimer with a folk music group in the Elgin area.
My son, Fraser, has been taking piano lessons since the age of 5. He started with Lowery Music Studio at age 6. He is now almost 12 and entering middle school this year. He is still with Mrs. Lowery and adores her! She is one of the most patient and kind people I know. My son can't imagine being anywhere else for his musical education! One of the many things I love about Sharon is that she allows her students to explore their own creativity while teaching them the core knowledge they need. My son loves to explore all kinds of different genres on the piano, and Sharon always welcomes whatever piece it is he wishes to learn. It makes him really love playing and learning! There has never been a time when he doesn't want to go to piano with Mrs. Lowery!
My daughter, Lauren, has been taking piano lessons from Sharon Lowery for just over one year and I have been so pleased with my entire experience with Sharon & her music studio. She has the ability to recognize the individual strengths of each of her students and adapts her teaching style to accommodate each student's needs. She takes as much time as is needed for each new technique, and will never move on to new material until the current lesson is understood. She has so much patience and is always so encouraging in her teaching and my daughter really looks forward to going to her lesson each week. My daughter has grown so much over the past year under Sharon's guidance and her love of music gets stronger each week. Sharon is a great teacher and a great person and I sould highly recommend her to anyone looking for piano instruction.

Mrs. Lowery has been a piano teacher for both of my daughters for over 6 years now. Her methods keep both of them motivated and excited to learn new skills. She has always been very encouraging, entertaining and inspiring my girls to always do their best and to keep striving for excellence. She gives them plenty of opportunities to show their accomplishments at various events: studio recitals, concerts organized at local senior centers, and piano guild auditions. We all love Mrs. Lowery and recommend her with great enthusiasm!
