Linda Marie's Piano Studio
Hands on interactive skills that promote learning through reading music and playing by ear. Also a thoughtful presentation of the black and white keyboard so that you memorize the shapes. Colorful drawings and books help w learning. Interactive aids including computer learning. Most important is the development of the musical ear.. A calm collected approach, tailored to each students unique learning style. I also enjoy teaching in Spanish having lived in Mexico.
I enjoy working with children and adults. Their eagerness to learn is what drives me. I want to be the best teacher for each person. I am also bilingual English/Spanish.
