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

Each student in an individual.  I listen to the student playing during the interview and place them at the level they are comfortable.

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

A BA in piano performance and education.  I've been a regular participant in music teacher master classes and state, national and international music conferences.  I've also continued with my own lessons for years.

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

I charge by the term.  Students who qualify can sign up for a reduced fee through Music Link, a national program

How did you get started teaching?

I stated teaching in college and have always wanted to be a piano teacher.

What types of students have you worked with?

I've worked with all types and kinds of students, but at this time I am concentrating on the dedicated student.  I have mostly boys, but all my students are all fairly competitive and practice a lot.

Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Three of my students just participated in premiering new modern music at the "In Good Hands" sponsored by the Cascadia Composers.  The student got to meet the composer of their music and work with him.  Earlier this spring two of my students accompanied a local ballet company.  All students take written and performance exams and play a concerto and accompany another student's concerto.

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

Ask to interview a teacher and have some repertoire to perform and also demonstrate skills with scales, arpeggios, and chord progressions. Ask about festivals, exams, etc. that interests the student.

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

Ask about time availability and how much practice time is required.  Fees should also be discussed.
