I keep piano lessons both engaging & fun, including highest level of musical education. Beginning lessons encompass good posture & hand position, reading music notation, sight reading, repertoire, rhythm & learning effective practice habits. As skills develop, students are then able to explore more challenging pieces.
Adult beginners may wonder if it's too late. It's never too late to gain significant ability at the piano. Music is central to our human nature. If you took piano lessons as a child but have not played in many years, your efforts have not been lost. The basic skills are still part of your brain waiting to be reignited. We will review the basics & move forward at your comfortable pace.
The joy of music is everyone's birthright. It's never too late to activate your musical potential. Learning to play piano opens worlds of artistic expression, enhancing self confidence & personal growth.
With over 25 years professional experience as a teacher, I apply every relevant piano method to assist individuals to overcome challenges unique to themselves. I provide a solid foundation in keyboard technique & musicianship so that students are empowered to explore different types of music. Igniting the imagination of students & providing them with tools to realize their highest potential is the basis of my teaching.
