LESSONS

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.

 

LESSONS FOR YOUTH      

Beginners through advanced levels, ages 5-18

  • 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!

A complete curriculum includes:

 

LESSONS FOR ADULTS

  For Intermediate & Advanced levels interested in technical and musical improvement.

  Pursue your creative passion!  

  • Do you love to play, and want some guidance with learning new pieces and how to practice?

  • Want to improve your technique and physical connection to the instrument? 

  • Are you looking for solutions to tension or pain?

  • Do you feel like something is blocking your ability to play better or make progress?

  • Is anxiety and nervousness preventing you from playing your best?

  • Seeking a deeper understanding of the music, or how to unlock the secrets of interpretation and expression?

I love incorporating technology into lessons and practice!

 

I'll show students how to use their mobile device (especially iPhone & iPad) to:

 

  • practice with a metronome App

 

  • make audio & video recordings for practice and performance

 

  • use iCloud & YouTube to 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

 
 

FaceTime, Skype, or Recorded Video lessons!

   

  You don't 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. Just send video recordings 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.
