I am a Music for Young Children graduate. I started my piano lessons when I was five years old and now have the privilege of teaching this awesome program.
Each student is unique
Everyone has their own interests and learning styles. My goal is to provide each student with a secure understanding of music, combined with good classical technique, while keeping lessons fun and relevant to the student and their aspirations.
I enjoy helping my students discover the joy of playing the piano. Learning to play an instrument provides students with a sense of accomplishment. Music lessons also improve a student’s self-discipline, dexterity, coordination, self-esteem, thinking skills, creative abilities, and personal expression.
