About this pro

I'm offering piano lessons! Individual or small group lessons for all ages. Classical and/or contemporary-- meaning learning to read and play music traditionally, and/or learning how to follow chord charts or lead sheets. I have been teaching for 20 years, but I am new to the island and just starting up my studio here. $25 for a half hour lesson for individuals or $25 for a 45 minute class for individuals in small group lessons. Lessons at my home. Face masks and hand sanitizer, and I will sanitize the area after each lesson. 

I love music. Playing it myself and teaching others.

FAQs


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

I begin with a small assessment of where the student is at. For first time beginners I will start with leaning key names on the piano, note names in middle C position on the staff and clapping out basic rhythms for counting.  I use the Faber Books with some supplimental songs for fun on the side.  We will start small with the scales and chords.  For students who have already had some instruction, we find what level they are at and work on our practice techniques, focusing on whatever things we need to as we work together to get more music fluency. 


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

I studied piano performance at Boise State. I have been teaching lessons for 20 years. 


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

$25 a lesson


How did you get started teaching?

In high school I started teaching the neighbor kids, and I just never stopped.  


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages, autistic, all abilities.  I love working with people.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Every year we have a Halloween recital, and all my students and I dress up in costumes and play music.  With covid, we wont be able to, but ths will be my first year not doing it since I was 20.  It's my favorite recital to hold.  I love holidays and dressing up.  


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

I would advice them not to go with a teacher who takes short cuts.  Learn to count, read the notes, memorize the key names on the piano, memorize the scales and chords and which finger patterns to use.  It all helps with your musical literacy and it makes it so much easier in the long run.
