I have enjoyed teaching piano for 23 years and have a teaching certification. I design my lessons to suit the individual student and therefore use different methods/courses based on the student's needs. In addition to the typical classical curriculum, I also include music theory, music history, music composition, ear training, and performance opportunities for my students. My students enjoy having group lessons, incentives, games, a memorizing contest, and an annual recital. In addition to classical study, I also give students the opportunity to study popular, country, folk, musicals, rock, holiday, movie and TV tunes depending on the interests of the student. My teaching philosophy goals are that the student become skilled in playing the piano, gain knowledge of music, and have fun while they learn!
