About this pro

I have been an active member of Music Teachers National Association; Florida State Music Teachers Association and Mid-State Music Teachers Association since 1969 teaching piano, theory, voice and organ. I instill many skills in every student of different personalities and learning styles from age 5 to adults. My students have participated in many challenging competitions and recitals earning honors in Aural, written theory and in performances.   

I love teaching music whether it's piano or voice to others. It is a pleaure to watch and observe my students perform in front ot others whther it's a recital or a competition and to see them make the highest honor score possible by their performance. When I see my student's eyes light up saying "Hey! I've got it!" is the greatest satisfaction any teacher could want. I love music and personally perform many styles while entertaining others in various cities in the evenings.

FAQs


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

First to make a student feel comfortable with me and the surroundings. When at ease, the greatest learning begins.

I have trained musically at USF, U of Fl., Fl State and U C.  I constantly am in training with workshops, etc. to advance my knowledge.


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

Yes, because of my belief in offering music lessons to everyone, I keep my price lower than most teachers so I can reach those who really want to learn but are on limited means. My fee is not different for those who can afford the lessons.

Being a judge for competitions and being able to give positive remarks about a students playing ability as well as areas he/she need to improve. It's exciting to see growth in a student from year to year.

Someone who has been a teacher longer than just fresh out of college.


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