I am an enthusiastic elementary school teacher, and have taught privately for 21 years. My goal is to retire from teaching, and expand my one-on-one piano teaching. It is so fun to teach students who want to take lessons and have the desire to play and develop their skills. Private teaching will allow me a more flexible schedule, while fulfilling my passion of inspiring students to achieve their piano goals. Through private playing, online theory, and additional aural and sight reading, every minute counts during a lesson. I am a national board certified music teacher who writes grants to provide the best for my students, and privately, assuring my students get to share their music with others through concerts and performances.
