Lessons

TEACHING STYLE:
  • Traditional-method instruction: reading skills and theory are taught as student learns to play
  • However, my dance and storytelling skills often become part of lessons… I believe in a holistic approach to teaching the arts!
  • Pace is age-appropriate and tailored to student’s needs
  • I am classically trained, but that doesn’t mean we always play classical music– what a student loves to play is what we work on first.
  • I often use Faber & Faber for beginners, but am always open to other methods if preferred
RECITALS:
  • Once a year
  • No student is too young or inexperienced to learn the fun of the art of performance
  • Duets welcomed!
SCHEDULE:
  • I recommend half-hour lessons for beginning kids, 45-minute lessons for intermediate kids, and 60-minute lessons for beginning adults
  • Regular teaching days are Monday-Thursday; Friday/weekends are reserved for makeups if needed
  • My schedule is flexible– please contact me to find what times are available
  • Flexible scheduling is usually possible around special events and holidays
