About this pro

Hi, I'm Peri from Strongwater Studios. 

We offer private lessons in piano, guitar, ukulele, songwriting, violin and viola -- and any combination you can dream of! My speciality is incorporating different instruments and providing an introduction to the foundations of music theory, allowing for students to try different instruments and types of music.

I am a board-certified music therapist and have my master's in mental health counseling, and can provide adapted music lessons for students with disabilities and mental health diagnoses.

Beyond traditional music performance, I also work songwriting, improvisation, music analysis and music for wellness into our lessons! I believe that the BEST part about music is using it for creativity, self-expression, emotional regulation and to support developmental goals.
