About this pro

We have provided first-class music instruction to the Joliet/Plainfield area since 1992.  

All of our instructors are active performers in church and community music groups.

Student recitals are held twice a year along with contests for advancing players.  

Some former students are professional musicians or school music teachers.

Sharing our love of music is our way of helping students enhance their lives and others as well.  Music is an important part of any student's overall education!

FAQs


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

We evaluate previous musical experience and decide on a method to improve their skills.  Personal interests are also taken into account.


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

I have been playing piano, organ, and singing for over 40 years in churches, schools and community theater.  My music education includes private lessons and master classes at Northwestern University and Chicago City College.  In addition, I was a staff accompanist at Concordia College, Moorhead, MN and traveled throughout Midwest with school-sponsored music groups.


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

Lessons are $30 for 30-minutes per week with fees paid monthly to the instructor.  We encourage new students to meet with their teacher first to discuss their background and experience.


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching as a sideline and liked it so much I decided to open our own studio in 1992.


What types of students have you worked with?

Our staff has worked with students of all ages and background, including special needs children.  I especially enjoy working with advancing students who are interested in music education or performance as a career. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Our most recent student recital was held on November 18th featuring over 25 of our best players.  In addition, five of these students were invited to participate in the Downers Grove Music Club Piano Festival & Competition in March, 2019.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Meet with the instructor to make sure that their background and teaching style is a good match.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What do I want to do with my musical training?

Would I consider music as a profession?

Do I want to learn to play better for friends and family?
