About this pro

I specialize in young beginner students. I work with kids of all ages, but I believe the best age to start is around age 5-6, because they are old enough to learn, but young enough that they're not involved in extracurricular activities everyday, giving them time to practice. 

I've been teaching for almost 4 years. My students have ranged in age from 4-86 years old, making my studio one of the most versatile age groups. 

I enjoy eing able to work with children everyday. I work from my home, and it's amazing. Getting to meet new children, and seeing their face light up when they finally understand something is the best feeling in the world.

FAQs


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

I work with them according to their different needs. A five year old would be treated different than a twelve year old. For the most part, I just try to start slow, review often, and make sure they have fun!


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

I have been playing since I was 6 years old. I have been playing for Calvary Baptist Church for 4 years. 


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

Half hour-$15

Forty-five minutes-$20

Hour-$25


How did you get started teaching?

I started teaching after school my junior year to a couple girls from my church. Two years ago, I quit my after school job to go into piano teaching full time, and I have loved it ever since. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with every single age group, from preschool to adults. I have had autistic, ADHD, dyslexic, among other special needs that I have successfully worked with. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

The last event I had was my Christmas recital. I had fourteen wonderful participants, and I'm hoping for even more this year!


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

Pick the teacher you or your child can have the most fun with. If your child doesn't like their teacher, they won't learn well and they won't stick with it. Pick someone that can get them interested in lessons, specifically interested in simple songs that can be mastered quickly to give a feeling of accomplishment. 


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

Think about the long-term. Is this something I like the idea of doing, or is this something I can commit to? If you can't practice on a consistent basis, or if you can't commit to a lesson time, you shouldn't begin. Piano involves practicing 3-5 times a week in order to progress at a steady pace.
