I have a degree in music education and have been giving private piano lessons since 1985. I enjoy giving private piano lessons and I have a great amount of patience. I teach students beginning at age 5 through adults. Students will need a piano to practice at home and need to commit to practice time between lessons. I teach how to read and play piano music, music theory and the style of music desired by the student.
I am passionate about teaching with a great deal of patience. People learn at own pace with varying talents and backgrounds. In addition to learning to read music notation I include rote learning and ear training in lessons.
My son has had lessons with Belinda since he was 5. She is always so patient and kind to him. He loves going to his piano lessons with Belinda.
Ms. Belinda is always excited to teach my girls. She is enthusiastic & patient. I love that she loves her job. We are so happy to be working with Ms. Belinda. My girls love learning with her.
We LOVE Ms. Belinda! She has taken the time to get to know each one of my children. She is timely, patient, enthusiastic, thorough, kind, flexible, and FUN! My children have learned so much. Piano Day is our favorite day of the week!
I love her caring spirit
If a student as no prior training in piano, I begin the student with necessary foundations so that the student will be successful at reading music.
I am a Texas certified music educator with 30 years of experience in private and public learning venues. I have a bachelors of music education from West Virginia University and Masters from Texas A & M. I taught a piano lab of 16-28 pianos for 17 years at a public middle school in San Antonio.
A lesson is $25 for a 30 minute lesson paid in advance monthly.
My mother was a piano teacher and beautiful vocalist. I began giving private lessons in 1982 while in college because people requested them from me after hearing my perform.
I have worked with autistic, special ed, one handed, emotionally disturbed, gifted, normal people of all ages.
Student feeling excited about lesson progress playing both hands at same time.
Long Term goals are achieved when the student practices regularly on home instrument. Travel to teacher and a scheduled time that is convenient is important.
What do I want to learn? Do I want to read piano music or how to play chords? What style of music do I want to play?
