I love teaching a variety of ages in my studio. Supporting the new student and making learning piano an adventure is fun. I also love working with older students in a variety of styles as well as polishing pieces for performance. Adults are welcome—if you’ve always wanted to learn to play, there is no better time to start than now.
My main goal in working with students is to take them from wherever they are and to work with them to expand their musical ability and knowledge. I work with younger students to give them a good solid basic foundation, as well as making sure they find learning music fun. For older students, I want to know what their personal goals are too. If there is a piece or style you’ve always wanted to learn—let’s look at making that happen.
NOTE: Additional performance opportunities are not required. However, preparing material for performance is often one of the best ways to expand your musical ability—so I recommend and support performances. Generally, I will give my support to expanding the musical growth of any student studying with me and will often attend non-piano performances if requested (i.e. choir concerts, band concerts, theater plays, etc.).
