I love sharing the gift of music with my students. It's my goal to make each lesson enjoyable and to motivate my students. Since I was a first grade teacher, I understand the importance of helping my students have a solid foundation to build on. There is never a "one size fits all" approach to my teaching. I have found that around 45 minutes is an ideal length for most lessons, and I try to work with each student as long as he/she is focused and absorbing the new material presented.
My four-year-old daughter and I have been taking lessons with Linda for about six months now. Linda is a true professional who knows how to work with children, how to engage their interest and how to adapt lessons to each person's personality and learning style. I am very impressed with my own progress that I have made during this time! Piano lessons are the highlight of our week for both my daughter and me. Linda is patient, professional, funny, and I am proud and happy to have her as our piano teacher. ♥
My five-year old son has been taking lessons with Ms. Linda for half a year, and she is an amazing teacher and an incredible person - warm, encouraging, and very knowledgeable. Having just turned 5, I wasn't sure if my son would be ready for piano, but Ms. Linda's approach is fun and encourages learning - he excited about music and looks forward to his lesson each week! Her experience as a school teacher brings out the best in the student, and I greatly appreciate her helping to instill a love for music and to support learning in general for my son. She goes beyond all expectations of a piano teacher!
She gave me confidence that I could actually play the piano and I am doing just that.
I love to find out why my students want to learn Piano? What drives them to succeed? What types of music they prefer. I try to cater my lessons to fit my student's desires.
