My Musical Education Background
I have been playing the piano since I was 10 years old and found that it can be a wonderful creative outlet. I have been teaching and performing professionally for over 25 years. My greatest joy is to pass this knowledge onto others through one on one personalized lessons. I have had the great fortune to have studied with some of the best pianists in the world, and from each have gained insight into how to play the piano without tension, without fear, and to pour my soul into it. I have degrees from The Cincinnati Conservatory, University of Washington and the Schola Cantorum in Paris, France.
I believe each person is different in their learning styles, so I cater my teaching to them. I use various method books in the beginning like Faber and Faber or Hal Leonard series and quickly move into more interesting repertoire. My goal is to allow someone to have proficient reading skills and ample technique as quickly as possible so that they can enjoy the music they are seeking to play.
Music has played an important role in my life and offers a kind of joy that I know I will have the rest of my days. Playing with other musicians is also one of the greatest pleasures in life in my opinion.
Piano lessons are one hour weekly plus a performance/theory class on the first Friday of the month. We have regular recitals and participate in festivals. The salary per month is $240.00. This includes the extra fifth lesson that happens in various months.
