    Kristen is absolutely WONDERFUL! Where I fall short in ability to teach she shines and brings a smile to my daughter every time she gets to work with her.

FAQs


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

You are more than welcome to meet me before you would like to start paying tuition. I understand that there are a lot of options for piano teachers in this area, and I appreciate the chance to meet you. I work individually with students, meaning that if they like to play a certain type of musical genre, I will work with them mostly on what they request. If they are having trouble with something, I will slow down and make sure that the technique is perfected before moving on. I teach on an individual basis.


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

I graduated with a Piano Pedagogy minor from LSU. Previously I had also worked with Christine Lien, piano teacher and member of BRMTA for 12 years. I started playing piano when I was eight years old, and I got really into it when I discovered that I liked writing music. I now am lead keyboard of The Ones You Loved, along with being a songwriter for the group. 


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

At my location, lessons are $120 per month. If I am to visit you at your home, there will be a price depending on where you are located. Please ask me if you would like a quote for at-home piano lessons.


What types of students have you worked with?

I mostly work with beginners, however I welcome every level.


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

Every year I host a piano recital. It is such a privilege watching my students grow. I love my job!


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

Find a teacher that fits the student's personality and goals. It is important for the student to feel like they have an opportunity to make progress that is rewarded by encouragement.


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

Ask yourself what your goal is when it comes to piano. Express that to your teacher, and you will feel yourself progressing through the year. That is definitely how you can get the maximum out of your piano learning experience.
