Not only do I teach traditional piano students, I also specialize in home schooled children, and those on the spectrum. I can give references upon request.
She is encouraging and pushes my son to improve each lesson.
She tailored her teaching style to meet my goals and timelines
Pamela has instructed 3 of our children (plus myself, when I took some time to take lessons again!) All three are differently abled learners (two of them have autism.) Pamela is patient, loving and kind, but also incredibly creative. She has made learning to read music and play an instrument fun for all of them, and I believe their love of music will last their lifetimes.
I am a member of Pam's ukulele class. I love our lessons ... it is one of my favorite hours each week. Pam makes learning fun by breaking down fingering, rhythms, musical phrasing, etc. She has taken three novice players from rank beginners to a cohesive ensemble playing a three part arrangement of a 1928 classic show tune as well as singing and playing a chordal arrangement of an Elvis Presley favorite at a student recital. She encourages her students with positive feedback and concrete, practical suggestions to help with technique and improved musicianship. But most of all she is a caring and wise woman who shares her love of music and life with all who know her.
We will set a time and day. This belongs to you. You will come once a week for your lesson.
I possess a bachelor's degree from Clayton State College and University in piano performance. I received a full scholarship there.
I charge $30 per lesson. I am flexible with when you pay, and will give makeup lessons for missed classes.
I began teaching when I was 16 years old. I loved it from the beginning!
Young and young at heart, I work with all ages from 4 years old on up. For the last 10 years I have worked with several students on the spectrum, and with the home school community.
Occasionally I work with orchestra, chamber, and jazz groups. I have recently had the honor to play at Symphony Hall in Atlanta, a dream come true.
Make sure that your teacher helps fulfill your personal goals for piano. If you want to pursue piano in college, your lessons should help you prepare for that. If your lessons are for fun, they should be fun!!
What do I want to do with my new skill?
