Playing piano brings a person great joy.
It is my desire to help all my students develop a love for the piano.
Making music by reading notes on the page, and playing chords and bass lines by heart.
Everyone loves to play Happy Birthday for friends and family.
I have so much encouragement to share, talent to refine, and a challenge to define.
I hope to help you meet your personal musical goals.

I took piano lessons with Ms. Wendy for more than 10 years. She instilled in me a love of piano, an appreciation for composers of all genres, and the importance of learning the basics to master a skill! She has a kind, understanding, and encouraging teaching approach that brings out the best in all her students. I don't get to play much now but I can't walk by a piano without wanting to play it and thinking of her great lessons! Would recommend a hundred times over, especially with young students, as she is very patient.
Teach Wendy is really great with my two girls (ages 4 & 6). She is patient and makes it fun with stickers, records them on her iPad. Great, pleasant and fun attitude.
