About this pro

I have been playing the piano for almost 40 years!  (Yikes...that shows my age...)  I am a Colorado state-certified Spanish teacher, with more than 15 years of teaching experience.  I love playing the piano and teaching, even better when I can combine both!

My lessons are unique because I have an extensive piano library in my home, and the cost of books is included in the lesson fee.  This can save parents $100s over the course of lessons!  I am able to choose different books for different students, and tailor their music to their interests.  If a student doesn't like a book or song, no problem!  We just choose another book from the library.  Students and parents seem to love my piano library as much as I do!

FAQs


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

I talk to parents on the phone first to find out more about the student.  Then, we start with a free 30-minute consultation to see if it's a good fit between student and teacher.  I talk with the student and parents about a plan for student success and from there, we learn to play the piano!


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

Colorado state-certified teacher.


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

$25/half hour

$40/hour

Includes the rental of books.


How did you get started teaching?

Friends heard me play and asked me if I gave lessons.  I replied, "Now I do!"


What types of students have you worked with?

All ages, from 6 years to 60 years old.  One little girl is autistic, and was non-verbal until recently.  Now she is learning to play the piano!  An older man is a kidney transplant recipient, so is on medication for life which causes tremors in his hands.  He too is learning to play the piano!  I am so proud of these students.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I played an end-of-the-year concert at the Blind School of Colorado Springs.  It was music for healing from my debut CD, describing my journey of recovery from a traumatic brain injury sustained in a bad car accident 2 years ago.  A tween-age girl in the first row raised her hand and said she was sorry for what happened to me, but was glad I came to their school to give a concert.  Her maturity, words, and courage brought tears to my eyes.


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

Talk to the teacher first!  Ask the teacher questions!  Make sure it's a good fit!


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are your goals for piano lessons? (theory, playing for fun, dreams of playing professionally, etc)

How much time can you commit each week to practicing?

What type of music would you someday like to play?
