My teenage and adult students leave the very first lesson playing songs they love. I use the songs that the student loves top teach theory and how to play.
I love seeing a gift that my parents sacrificed to extend to me passed on to others. I was born to teach and it is what I love to do.
Dr. McKinney tailored the lesson to my son's musical preferences and made his lessons fun for him
I absolutely LOVED Dr. Ossie! She was patient and an excellent teacher. She really cares about her students, is very affordable, and wants nothing but the best for her students :) Would definitely recommend her for all your musical needs!
Dr. Ossie is an awesome teacher of music. She is a gifted musician who not only plays well, but she knows the theory and history of music. Like me she is a worshipper so she has taught me several worship songs. I recommend Dr. Ossie not only for lessons for children, but also for adults who always dreamed of playing the piano!
Ossie is flexible, dependent and very knowledgeable in her area of expertise. Because she knows how to play music by ear and by reading, this is a plus. Ossie is also very thorough.
My typical process is learning the student ‘s favorite artist or song and tailoring my lesson around that song to teach music theory and musical concepts.
BA in Music
Doctor of Worship Studies
I started teaching piano 16 years ago as an extracurriculum class at Light of the World Christian School. Once I started, I learned thst I loved passing along the gift of music that my parents had given me.
I have worked with beginning piano students who have had absolutely no prior piano training to intermediate students. I have taught ages five up to late seventies in age.
Do not merely ask questions to see if the teacher is a fit, ask the teacher to play. The student will develop the sound of their teacher.
The student should evaluate if they are willing to put in the practice and work required to learn to play the piano.
