About this pro

I love teaching piano.  I help students play by ear And teach them how to read music.  Students who study with me advance very quickly as I can see their invidual paths to development.  My teaching includes elementary school-age children up to Graduate Piano students.  Two of my studentshave played Carnegie Hall in New York and I have played there twice.  My goal is for students to have Fun and enjoy playing the music that appeals to them plus expand their musical horizons.  

I enjoy showing students where the tunes are in the music, what supports the music rhythmically and how to sight-read.

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

My usual lesson format is to teach a new scale, arpeggio or chord progression as a warmup so students can eventually play  easily in every key.

Then we work on a new piece and then fine-tune an older one.

Then we work on improvvising based on simple chord progressions and melodies.

These activities are recorded into student's notebook.  

Sometimes I send an accompaniment straight to student to practice individual hand with that accompaniment. 

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

I have a Doctorate in Music Education from UNC-Greensboro;

I have a Masters in Piano Performance from The Juilliard School in New York;

I have undergraduate and High School Degrees from the North Carolina School of the Arts;

I have taught 21 years in Colleges/Universities including UNCSA, Salem College, High Point University;

I have taught in Public Schools including beginning Class Piano Studies at Reynolds High School in Winston-Salem, NC.
