I love stirring up passion in a student for playing the piano. The best feeling in the world is being able to create beautiful music and I want to transfer this feeling to my students.

    I'm the mom of one of her students. I really love her teaching style. She is super encouraging and my boy loves her! She's great at interpersonal relationships. After the lessons, she makes sure to catch up on his life and play with him (often when I'm late to pick him up lol). They have made huge progress so far and I couldn't recommend a better teacher.



FAQs


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

I start out by having my students test out the piano and letting them play by ear. Once a student has become comfortable with the piano keys, I teach them how to read music, how to keep rhythm, how to follow dynamics and the different aspects of a single sheet of music. We will practice fun songs as she/he advances in their skills. 


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

I'm a college student currently and I have taught piano since I was a sophomore in Highschool. I have had 9 years of piano lessons and I also participated in band in highschool as a clarinetist. 


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

I charge $15 for 30 minutes of lessons. 


How did you get started teaching?

I played the piano for the church band for several years and from there, I was asked by parents at my church to teach their kids piano. I've been teaching since sophomore year in highschool. 


What types of students have you worked with?

I have only worked with preschool and elementary students. I am excellent with young kids! I can work with students with no experience at the piano at all and with any varying type of experience as well. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

A student that I'm currently teaching is absolutely dominating the classics. I started teaching her a year ago. She came in with no experience at all and now she is absolutely crushing Chopin, Pachabel, and Mozart. I'm incredibly proud of how much she has progressed. 


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

Hire a teacher who inspires you to learn and makes it fun. It's no good to hire a teacher who is a genius but makes you dread going to piano lessons. 


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

What is your goal for 1 year from now? How much time are you willing to put into practice?
