Experienced teacher accepting new students
Do you love the works of Mozart, Beethoven, or Liszt? Maybe you dream of mastering that wicked keyboard solo from your favorite rock band. Want to dedicate a song to a special someone? Whatever your motivation, now is your chance to start your musical journey! As several of my students have taught me, any musical background at ALL (guitar or voice to middle school band) makes learning a new instrument extremely easier. That means moving faster through background musical concepts and diving straight into actual performance time! And other good news--lessons don't have to break your wallet! Unlike many studios, I don't hide my rates and make you wonder what you'll be getting into. My goal is to help people learn to play the music they love while helping me pay back my music collection, not to get rich. See my rates below.
I began playing the piano at age 7 and soon found my lessons not only giving me a new skill but an outlet for stressful days and a way to express my happiness on good days. I firmly believe that ANYONE can learn to play the piano with enough work and desire. That is what drove me to start teaching lessons more than 10 years ago. The piano is not just for professional performers!! For young learners, learning an instrument and the language of music makes them better students and better playmates. For older learners, the piano can provide entertainment, therapy, and provide a satisfying challenge for stimulating parts of your brain that may not have been used in a while.
I'm accepting students to start this fall as early as August 30th. Schedule is open Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays between 4-7. You must have a piano in your home (though keyboards are acceptable for absolute beginners). Children should be 8 years or older for full dexterity, though individual exceptions can be made depending on the maturity, reading capacity, and dedication of younger children. Each student will complete an initial assessment to start out on the right foot--with lessons tailored to your skill level and interests. You will be responsible for paying for all lesson books which I will recommend according to the skill level of the student.
Beginner learners: Weekly 30 min lessons held in my home = $15 each.
Intermediate to Advanced learners: Weekly 1 hour lessons held in my home = $25 each.
