I love teaching piano to all ages. I enjoy helping others learn new skills, as well as how they can use music in their own life.
I am a good teacher. I am patient and thorough. I am creative in helping my students learn in different ways that work well for them. It is fulfilling to share in the process of learning songs and playing them for others or ourselves.
I was hesitant to start piano lessons because of both my history of giving up and the price. However Jan the owner of sound music studio is such a sweetheart and soo encouraging. She’s finding ways to help me get past the “my hands won’t cooperate with each other phase”. She makes me feel like I can do this. She is such an encourager and the price is well worth it to boot and she has great flexibility. She even sends music for her first responders during the week to relax. Definitely recommend.
Jan is organized, accommodating, and my daughter enjoys going!
Jan is the perfect piano teacher for me, a 75 year old learner. She applies just the right amount of pressure along with a great sense of humor.
Offer new students a Free First Lesson and visit to Sound Music Studio. Talk to the new student (and parents) about what they want to learn, and what their goals are.
I studied piano at the Frankfurt Concervatory of Music. I also studied Music Education at Indiana University and Early Childhood Education at the University of Washington, here in Seattle.

I started teaching while I was in High School and then continued to teach Piano and guitar to earn money and kept going with 4 kids of my own. They grew up and I kept teaching. I also teach handicapped students. I teach all ages. My youngest student is 5, my oldest student is 79!
I have worked with all ages and all cultures as well as handicapped students and ADHD students and others with all musical abilities!

One of my Students and their Parent learned to play a duet together!
Ask the teacher what they love most about teaching piano. Find out which teaching methods they use.
Ask themselves what they want from playing piano. What type of music do you like? Are you willing to practice? Are you willing to take time and progress slowly?
