Shirley Harrison was my pre-college teacher and prepared me for a successful college career. She instilled within me an understanding of stylistic interpretation and performance practice. She also introduced me to the technical skills necessary to perform a variety of styles. Mrs. Harrison is an artist-teacher in the truest sense. I have carried lessons learned with her through two piano degrees and a career in piano pedagogy. I highly recommend her to serious students wishing to delve into the world of classical repertoire and to anyone wishing to pursue a career in piano.
Shirley is an excellent piano teacher who has so much knowledge about music. Anyone who has the opportunity to learn from her is truly blessed.
Process varies with each individual, dependent upon age and previous study, if any.
All lessons are one on one, providing maximum opportunity for the students to progress at their own speed and ability.
