    Great teacher! Well informed and great communicator, keeps my daughter focused during the session and motivated outside of the class.

    I’m a 72 year old Sun City lady who always wanted to learn how to play the piano. I never thought that I could find an instructor that would be able to get me to a point that I would actually believe I could play. I found the best instructor in Priscilla Pinches. I’m enjoying the lessons, I’m enjoying practicing, and I’m so enjoying her teaching techniques. I’m very pleased with the results and plan to keep taking lessons from her for quite a while.

    My 8 year old son has been receiving piano lessons from Priscilla for 2 years and has loved and grown a lot in ability the whole time. She is very accommodating for his moments of frustrations and to our schedules. She has also given him chances to play with her band as a guest musician in front of an audience. We could not have asked for a better teacher for our son.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

I ask the students about their goals, experience and preferred Music Styles. I individualize the lessons depending upon the age and aptitude of a student. Parents are encouraged to support their child's daily 20-minute practice time at home and are always welcome to sit-in at lessons! The basics of note reading, chording and theory are taught along with performance tips. Recommend 2-year study before quitting or starting a new instrument! My approach is kind & patient. Have fun and flourish!


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

4-year college degree and over 40 years of experience teaching and performance.


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

$30 for weekly 30-minute private lesson, $60 for weekly 1-hour lesson, $45 for weekly 45-minute lesson in my home studio, payable monthly by the first lesson of each month with cash, PayPal or Quick Pay by Zelle. 2 week cancellation notice, makeup lessons available in event of sickness or emergency. Ask about senior discounts and group lessons.


How did you get started teaching?

I began singing in my church choir at age 6, began piano lessons at age 9, traveled & performed with school & community choruses throughout high school & college, minored in music in college, studied the profoundly therapeutic effects of music, found I had an aptitude for teaching & I love sharing my passion for music with others!

On July 5th, 2019 I invited my 8-year-old student to perform a duet with me at one of my Band gigs. We played "Cantina Band" from Star Wars. The student also performed solo "The Star-Spangled Banner". He was brilliant! Audiences love it when I bring my students to perform with my Band!
