One of the sweetest memories from my childhood is listening to my Mother play the piano.  I started lessons in grade school, and have played since.  While music has always been my passion, it wasn't until my children were grown that I started teaching.  My husband and I are both private piano teachers.  He started teaching in 1978, and I started my teaching career in 2000.      My students have ranged in age from three years old to several who are in their 80s; from starting with no experienced to very experienced.  Several of my students have had special needs: autism, Asperger's, etc.     &n ...

Hi, I have been teaching private music lessons and classes regularly since 2011.  I have a music degree from Iowa State University.  I spend most of my time teaching music to students in underserved areas of Kansas City through my non-profit organization "Kansas City Arts Outreach".   Each student is unique with different strengths and learning styles.  I believe that students have the best experience when I tailor lessons to meet each student's unique set of circumstances.  There is no "one size fits all" style of learning.  This is what is important to me and has given my students the most success.  I look ...

I love music, first and foremost! It is my true passion. :) I have learned the same thing about teaching. It is the most rewarding part of life and goes hand in hand with my personal learning process.

No need for you to drive anywhere. :) Secondly, I have 23 years of playing under my belt, and consider myself to be a perfectionist.

Besides teaching my students how to just play songs, I like to give them an in-depth understanding of the instrument and of music. I listen intently to what my student would like to be able to do or play on the guitar, bass or banjo, and do my very best to give them the skills in order to achieve their goals, whether it be certain songs (which are extremely motivating) or certain skills.

A lot of the secrets to being successful at playing proficiently and getting right to the meat of what will make you a good player, not just a so so player. I like to give them t ... View Profile
