About this pro

I am an experienced music teacher offering piano lessons to students age 6-80.  I have my degree in music education from West Chester University.

As well as teaching private lessons I play piano and organ at Church of the Cross and direct the church choir.  I am responsible for the Sunday music and special music programs for the church.

I enjoy seeing students progress in learning to play piano.  Some have wanted to do this for a long time! (as with the adults)

I have taught music over 30 years.
