About this pro

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.

    I like Miss Claudette’s knowledge, patience and consistency! My daughter has been a student for 10+ years!!

  • Ms. Chie

    Miss Claudette did a great job adapting her teaching style and materials to my son’s level. This was really key in keeping him engaged. She made learning fun and the books she started him with were perfect for his kindergarten age. She continues to work with him 3 years later and he still looks forward to piano lessons, which is a miracle in itself.

    Claudette is fabulous! Two of my children have been under Claudette’s tutelage for nearly 5 years now. I highly recommend Claudette, is she a fantastic piano teacher who adapts her style to keep students engaged; she is encouraging and firm at the same time. I really appreciate that she also works with students on overall music knowledge of classical pieces and composers. During COVID Claudette quickly adapted to video sessions - I didn’t have high expectations of how effective they’d be, but both children continued to really progress and looked forward to the weekly interaction.

    My 2 kids are currently taking piano lessons with Miss Claudette. I love the way she tailored their lessons to suit them individually. She has the ability to be kind, patient and firm all at the same time. My kids absolutely love her.

FAQs


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

I teach students ages 5 years old through adult.  I find out their former involvement in music and what are their interests in music.  I introduce them to the piano by seeing that they recognize the pattern of keys. Next I introduce them to the concept of high and low in pitch.  Then I introduce them to the appropriate book for their study of piano.  Proceeding from there I encourage them with the extreme importance of daily practice.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

I have a degree in Music Education, emphasis in piano,  from the University of Kentucky.  I attend piano workshops and continue to research music and piano teaching.  Of the utmost importance is my experience in teaching and how I am continually adapting my teaching to each student’s abilities and capabilities.


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

Private lessons are $40 for 45-minute lessons once a week. 

Students enrolled in private lessons with me attend Master-Your-Piano group classes a few times a year.  Those classes are $10
