American Academy Of Music And Dance
I have been teaching music and dance for more than 25 years. I am available for both in person and remote/zoom lessons. I teach in an upbeat style, and I'm flexible on teaching schedules. For music, I teach piano, guitar, drums, bass and voice. For dance, I teach ballroom (waltz, jitterbug, foxtrot, tango, cha-cha, etc) line dancing and beginner tap. I love helping students learn and my goal is to inspire them and enrich their lives through music and dance.
One of the things I love most about teaching is it's often the culmination of a lifelong dream for my students who "always wanted to learn." For younger students, it's often the beginning of inspiration for a lifetime of music or dancing.
