About Me

I am a fourth-year Piano Performance major at The University of Akron. I am currently studying with Philip Thomson, and my past teachers include Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and the late Eugene Mancini. I have experience teaching six-year-olds, retirees, and those in between. I am patient, encouraging, and very passionate about music.

I am available to teach in the student's home or online. It may be possible to have lessons at the church where I am Director of Music.

Piano studies overview:

You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music might sound. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and should not be overly thought, but I will explain some rational principles.

Beginning students might start with a method such as the well-known 'Piano Adventures' by Faber and Faber. I am comfortable using other materials if that is what the student wants. Depending on the student's ambition, I will supplement with a variety of things.It is very important that students want to play something, so l will not force a student to play something that does not interest him or her. More advanced students will work on progressively more demanding literature.

In a piano lesson, I will teach some small theory lesson that applies to the pieces being studied. The student and I will analyze a new piece of music in various ways while coming up with an idea of how it sounds. I will play the piece and make practice suggestions. The student will play studied music too of course, and I will make suggestions. We will sight-read and go over other lessons too. I value spontaneity.

My adult students say I am insightful.

Barbara D. Twinsburg, OH

Subjects Taught

Music Theory, Upright Bass, Viola, Violin

About Me

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood.

Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that, you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument!

In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ensembles. Any combination of string instruments you are working with, I will work with your group to improve your cohesiveness and your musical style.
