ADULT  LESSONS

 

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

 

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.

  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?

Lessons can be tailored to address any of these questions & more -

while learning the classical music you love!

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

 

 

  • Use rhythm, note reading, ear training, and theory apps to improve skills

 

 

  • 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?

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!
