Hello my dear future piano students! I'm a classically trained pianist who plays and teaches all styles of music. I've been teaching piano for over 35 years. I bring my expertise, joy and love of teaching to every lesson. I focus on the most relaxed way to approach the keyboard which sets me apart from many other piano teachers. I also add a bit of theory, composition and improvisation to the mix. I love teaching students who play at every level - from beginner to advanced and any age from seven on up. I've had many adult students as well as children. I look forward to meeting you.

Each student has their own goals, talents and skills so I tailor the lessons to each student's needs and desires.
I started studying piano at the young age of 4 with my mother and at age 5 went to my first piano teacher outside the home and never stopped studying until after college! I went to Indiana University music school as a piano performance major. Even after college I studied with a couple more wonderful teachers. My training is classical but I play and teach all styles of music.
I'm looking for students who want to study with me in my home in the Donelson area of Nashville taking half hour lessons. I charge $35 for a half hour lesson.
I got started teaching at Summer music camp at the age of 15. One of the teachers at the camp asked me to teach their two young daughters piano. I continued to teach piano lessons while I was at college and then started my own studio of students after college. I've taught piano over 35 years now. I love breaking things down to simple ideas that students can understand and giving students techniques that keep them relaxed as possible while playing.
I've taught students from ages 6 to 66 years old. I've also taught a few special needs students. I enjoy teaching students of all levels.
I recently went to hear Bruce Hornsby play with his band downtown at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center. It was a fabulous concert!
