Fun and engaging lessons for children, teens, and adults -- ages 5 and up!
I offer a comprehensive music education which involves learning how to read music, play with expression and proper technique, understand music theory, play by chords, and improvise. I have over 12 years of experience as a piano teacher and many more years of working full time with children in other capacities such as a nanny, special education paraprofessional, and childcare site director.
Music Theory Lessons
When I teach piano lessons, teaching music theory is integral to my approach. However, if you play a different instrument and aren't interested in piano lessons, but would like to understand the music theory behind the pieces you are playing, I'd be happy to help! I thoroughly enjoy talking about all the details in music theory, and love it when my students ask "how" and "why" questions about how music works!
I enjoy playing for events, including accompanying vocalists and instrumentalists, as often as my schedule allows. I’ve performed at weddings, funerals, parties, and other special occasions. I also have plenty of experience accompanying soloists and ensembles. In 1996, I started demonstrating pianos in a shopping mall. Even since then, I've loved providing background music for people’s everyday lives, whatever the occasion! Please contact me if you’re interested in booking me for an event, and I’d be happy to chat with you about it!
