YOUTH LESSONS

 

Beginners through advanced levels, ages 5-18

Weekly individual piano lessons are available in 30, 45, 60, or 90 minute lengths.

 

My goal is to help each student develop beautiful technique, self-awareness,

powerful practice skills, and creative expression.

  • Looking for an expert teacher who will motivate and inspire with positive energy?

  • Is your child starting lessons for the first time, and you want them to LOVE it?

  • Do you want to help your child make better progress AND enjoy learning?

  • Seeking new answers to practicing problems?

  • Want a music education that emphasizes both artistry and discipline?

I'm glad you found me!

Come discover why my students love their lessons! 

It's learning Beethoven or Chopin for the first time ...

That feeling when a practice strategy works like magic ...

It's the joy of creating a beautiful moment ...

Or the thrill of performing ...

And the confidence of having a teacher on your side who challenges and encourages you to be your best.

 

Personalized lessons for musical achievement!

I love incorporating technology into lessons and practice!

 

I'll show students how to use their device to:

 

  • Practice with a metronome App

 

  • Make audio & video recordings for practice and performance

 

  • Create shared video streams

 

  • Use a music journal App to log and track daily practice

 

 

  • Play fun rhythm, note reading, ear training, and theory games

 

 

  • Plus more!  Learn about some of my favorites on the Music Apps page.

TECHNOLOGY

 
 

ONLINE  LESSONS

Available on:  Zoom, FaceTime, Skype, Google Duo, or Recorded Video.

 Stay home, stay safe and keep making music!   

During the current COVID-19 pandemic, all lessons will continue online.  

Many things may be cancelled or closed, but our pianos are still open and music definitely isn't cancelled!

PLUS, with Online Lessons you'll never have to miss a lesson when:

  • a student (or parent) is sick or contagious and should stay home.

  • there's a snow storm or other weather emergency, and driving is hazardous.

  • you're traveling or going on vacation and can't attend your scheduled lesson time.  Have a lesson from wherever you are!  Or do a recorded lesson:  send videos to me before you leave, and receive my instruction in a video response during your lesson time, so it will be available for you when you get back.

Some FAQ's:

How do I prepare for an online lesson?  

How do I improve the sound quality?

Where should I set up my phone, or my tablet, or my laptop? 

What should I do to improve my internet connection?

I've got these answers and MORE, with lots of helpful resources to make your online lessons better!
