My passion is music, especially the piano. I have taught private and group piano lessons from my home studio for 14 years. I graduated from The University of Iowa, worked in the Corporate World for twelve years and have been teaching piano to ages 4-adult since then.
My studio has two pianos, one a Kawai digital and the other, a Kimball acoustic. I am a member of the ISMTA (Naperville Chapter) and have students who participate in two formal recitals, Sonata-Sonatina Festival as well as AIM testing. I teach all types of genres as well as Theory, Music History and Composition.
Piano is a life skill that can lead to many other instruments as well as serve as a stress reliever and provide enjoyment in many ways.
Please contact me if you are interested in discussing piano lessons. I would love to assist you in attaining your goals!! Thank you!!!
The diversity in my studio as well as the rewards from seeing each student progress. I also enjoy sharing my passion for piano and music with each of my students.
