I have been teaching piano since I was a freshman in college, majoring in Music Education at the University of Kentucky, more than 30 years ago. I love teaching and seeing my students progress in their abilities to play piano and grow to love it as I do. My lessons are fun and my students work hard to learn. Our bi-yearly recitals are exciting and everyone enjoys the opportunities to perform. To help prepare for recitals and to have contact with the other students, we have a Master Class Week once every two months. For that week students attend a group lesson in place of the private lesson. These are greatly enjoyed by everyone. Because it is the basis of learning music (and because I love it as well) lessons are traditional and based on classical training as well as popular and jazz and other styles that we (the students and I) enjoy. Since 2001 I have taught my piano lessons in a studio at Mount Paran Church.
