I have been playing piano for over twenty years and have been teaching private lessons since 2010. I have a bachelors in classical piano and music composition from Wheaton College, where I was the winner of the 2009 Ben Heppner Concerto Competition, and a masters in jazz piano from the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University Bloomington. I have taught extensively in both private lesson and group lessons contexts to students of all ages and musical backgrounds. I have performed around the country and recently played in the Disneyland All-American College Band at the Disneyland Resort in Anaheim, CA.
ABOUT PENNY R.
I graduated from college in Virginia with a Bachelor of Music Education degree as a voice major, and minored in piano and violin. My teaching certificate was for vocal, instrumental and general music, grades K - 12, and I graduated Magna Cum Laude.
Graduate school brought me to Indiana, where I earned a Masters of Music in Vocal Performance. Migrating up to the Chicago area from there, I taught at a private music school (voice and small ensembles, as well as many faculty performances) before staying at home to raise our children, and teaching voice lessons privately in my Studio. After 30 years of teaching, I'm still at it, and I still love it!
I am a Permanent Professional member of Music Teacher's National Association (MTNA), Illinois State Music ...
I have an unquenchable passion to learn about and create music. I grew up in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, Canada, with very little concert music around me. After hearing a digital piano play a Schubert Impromptu, I devoted my spare time to piano practice until I could play that piece. Since then, I have never stopped learning about and writing music. Sharing the joy of music with students and walking with them on a journey of learning is my greatest joy.
*** Lesson Details ***
Learning through collaboration is the most natural way to study piano. First hand experience with the instrument, imitating a good role model, and sharing the experience of discovery all create a fun, energetic, and relaxed environment.
Because piano lessons are a collaboration, both the teacher and ...
Early Guitar Studies & Pit Orchestra Performances (1995-2002)
I began taking guitar lessons at the age of 11 with blues/jazz guitarist Tom Castonzo, a frequent performer, bandleader and teacher in and around the Chicago area.

In 2002, I began performing in pit orchestras for various musicals including Jesus Christ Superstar, Les Miserable, The Wiz, Little Shop of Horrors, and Seussical the Musical.
