About this pro

Maxwell Music Studio offers private piano and harp lessons in north Tacoma. Students are provided with a holistic, comprehensive foundation in playing, creating, and listening to music. 

Lessons encompass developing students' abilities to read music, explore rhythm, compose melodies, and understand music theory. Piano and harp students learn and play a wide range of musical styles, and piano students also have the opportunity to participate in special performances and assessments through the Music Development Program.

Mission Statement: Maxwell Music Studio aims to support and nurture the love of music in every student by providing tailored instruction in a positive environment with a commitment to musical excellence and personal growth.

I believe that every human is intrinsically musical, and I enjoy the process of working with each student to help them develop a musical skillset that allows them to express their own unique sense of musicality.
