About this pro

My students LOVE piano! They don't need reminders to practice, because their music has its own draw. I keep lessons fun, engaging, and moving forward even if the student has struggled with a concept... there is always a new, fun way to approach that difficult concept and skill. Students who meet with me for a free meet and greet sign up and couldn't be more thrilled. Let me know how I can help you get started in the studio!

I love seeing my students excel. And even when progress isn't what we expect, I love being able to encourage them and have them leave happier and more proud of themselves than when they came into the studio that day. I love bringing music into my student's homes through their lessons... families who encourage and support their kids and adults whose families support them make all the difference in the world - give the gift of music to your loved one and sign up today.

    Kristin has been my sons piano teacher for the last 5 years. We just adore her. She has helped him grow a passion for music. She's kind, gentle and patient. Wonderful teacher.

  • Bridget, mom of student

    Very gifted instructor, space is perfect, truly teaches piano

  • Jen G

    Kristin was very gentle and engaging with our young learner, and has tailored her approach to our unique family rhythms and challenges. Three years in, we still have a kid who loves piano, chooses to practice on her own, and enjoys her lessons. Highly recommend.

  • Bobbie Mohler

    I adore Kristin and the way she makes it enjoyable to learn the piano. She has shown me how to overcome many obstacles the I have as an older human. The piano is a beautiful instrument taught to me by a beautiful human being named Kristin.

FAQs


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

I ask a lot of questions to get to know my student. Lessons are geared toward the individual student emphasizing their strengths and gently coaching their weaknesses into strengths.


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

I graduated from Portland Bible College in 2010 with a degree in Music, and have been teaching in my own studio since 2003 (17, almost 18 years at the time of this answer).


Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.

I teach 20, 30, 40, 50, and 60 minute lessons. This gives families the flexibility to pay what they can afford and what their child needs as they endeavor to reach their musical goals. There is a one time registration fee of $50 if we decide to go ahead with lessons after the free meet and greet.


How did you get started teaching?

My Dad encouraged me to start when I was 15 years old. My teachers helped me and I fell in love with the profession right away.


What types of students have you worked with?

All types. Some are children of professional musicians, some have parents with no musical background. I have worked with autistic students and students one would consider prodigies.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I love our studio recitals. I am always fond of those.


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Ask lots of questions, setup interviews. It is your right to find a teacher who makes you feel at ease and who you believe will help you learn the piano to the best of your ability.
