Hi! My name is Erin Winegarner and I am INCREDIBLY passionate about sharing the gift of music with YOU! Whether you want in-person lessons or you want to learn piano from the comfort of your home, I am your teacher! I have been teaching piano professionally for over 10 years and have been playing piano for nearly 20 years. I am passionate about people and music! However, music has not just been something fun for me, but has helped my immensely with my mental health. I want to show you how music can help you battle anxiety, depression, and more! I am graduating in december with a degree in Psychology and am so excited about incorporating my learning into my student's piano lessons. Send me a message today!
Our daughter has taking piano lessons with Erin for a little over two years. We were referred to her by some of our neighbors. Our daughter has progressed well through the books and feels that Erin is very patient, kind, and explains things well. Erin can also see when her students are getting frustrated or excelling and adjust their lessons accordingly. We have also recommended Erin to others and they have also began taking online lessons with her.
Erin is incredibly patient and kind. She is fantastic with all types of children, including those with special needs. She not only teaches students how to read music and play, but she also encourages students to tap into their own creativity, right from the start. She makes piano fun, rather than forced or rigid, which inspires her students to continue practicing and learning! I can't recommend her enough!
I teach through Faber and Faber Piano Adventures cirriculum. I teach a free trial lesson where I introduce basic concepts of music and allow the student to engage in writing their own songs, learning songs that are already written and then familiarizing them with concepts of piano playing. During regularly scheduled lessons I work with the student to continue learning foundational concepts of piano as well as learning proper technique and music theory. I also include fun songs that are fine tuned to the students interests.
I have been taught piano and took lessons for nearly 15 years. I then learned how to teach from my current teacher who took me under her wing and mentored me in the art of teaching piano. I have taken multiple music courses in my college studies and I am about to graduate with a degree in Psychology which I am excited about applying to my lessons and interactions with my students.
My pricing is 100 dollars a month on a tuition based system. The student gets one lesson a week!
After I had been impacted so immensly by my piano teacher, I realized that I would be missing out if I didn't pass on that love and joy to others. Teaching piano became a passion and a joy that allows me to give the gift of music to others!
I have worked with all different students, including young students, teens, adults, and students with special needs such as autism and audio processing disorders.
What are my goals in taking piano lessons?
