88 Keys Studio loves to bring the music to you! Learning the piano should be fun and I work hard to have every lesson be engaging and student-focused. Theory, rhythm games, composition, sightreading, and improv are a part of every lesson.
My love of music began at early age and continued through 9 years of piano lessons through my childhood and consisted of hours of exploring all genres of music. Fascination with sound, music theory, and the art and science behind it fueled my independent learning process through my teenage and continues to do so to this day. This love expanded into my career path, broadened into recording engineering and inviting others to journey with me through teaching piano. I have had the opportunity in introducing the world of music to dozens of students.
After hearing me play piano, my friends were astounded to learn that I've only been taking lessons for 6 months. I credit my success to my teacher. She inspires me to excel.
Our daughters greatly Mary Beth as their teacher. She was always prompt and communicated well. As a parent, I enjoyed her wealth of knowledge in music and her lessons which included fun games and music theory.
I would love to meet and discuss your goals, music preferences, and your schedule. I have day or evening hours available each week. If you have any questions regarding my philosophy, method, or experience, I welcome all questions! Please message me if you would like to schedule a time to meet!
The base rate for a 30 minute lesson starts at $125/ mo. Discounts are given with more than one student per household.
The world of piano pedagogy is constantly changing. Finding a teacher that is not only current on the latest methods and ideas but also spends time attending conferences and networking with other teachers is important when seeking a knowledgeable teacher. Professional development should be high on their list of priorities as well as staying current with their own practicing. I encourage this topic to be part of the conversation when considering a teacher. This reveals if teaching is simply a job or is it is a passion. The answer to this question will influence the student greatly.
