About this pro

Jubilee Piano Academy offers piano lessons to all ages and abilities.  The student has three options as to where the lesson can be taken:  your house, my office, or online with Zoom.us.  Family discounts are offered for more than two students.

Two piano recitals are offered:  "Christmas on the Ivories" and the Annual Spring Recital.

"Miss Monique" has been teaching piano since her college years.  She has taught easily hundreds of students and thousands of piano lessons.  She is also an expert at teaching the sport of golf, and is also a Certified Bible teacher.  She comes from an entire family of educators with more than 100 years of experience in teaching.

It is very fun to see all my students learn, change and grow into very good pianists and performers!

FAQs


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

The question is always:  where is this student at?  Then we go from there.  Everyone has their own starting point.


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

I am a graduate of Salve Regina-The Newport College: 

BA in Sociology and AA in Music.  In my Sophomore year I was awarded the "Ernesto Vasquez Memorial Award for Excellence in Music."


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

First half-hour:  $30.oo

Second half-hour:  $20.oo

Third half-hour (and more): $15

Therefore a family of three would pay just $65.oo for the three half-hour lessons.


How did you get started teaching?

I have been teaching others since I was in high school:  tutoring others students on writing thesis papers, teaching golf at Wanumetonomy C.C., and in college started teaching others piano lessons in a group setting.


What types of students have you worked with?

I teach all ages.  Piano students must be 6 years old and up.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

This past Spring Recital was a first!  Instead of renting a local church, the recital took place on Zoom.us!!

Even some relatives of the families participating were looking at the recital from Florida, Texas, and even Washington state!


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

Be willing to work, and try a little bit of every genre, or style of music.  Rock'n'Roll does not "translate" very well to being a good pianist.  If one can play a Beethoven Sonata, then they can play anything!


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

Be truthful and realistic.  Let your teacher give you the vision you might need!  Goal-setting is very important:  No, don't just take lessons aimlessly, the goal is to be able to perform in front of friends, family and however many others you can!!
