About Me

Your
relationship with music & your chosen instrument is unique &
will be life long. I look forward to sharing your
excitement as we pursue the path to comfort, confidence & the
eventual, inevitable joy you will achieve with your new friend.

Whether you are 5, 25, or perhaps 75 years old when you make the decision to enter the world of music, you will be changing your life for the positive.

*** Lesson Details ***
In a very calm, easy going atmosphere you can expect to laugh a bit, as it is called 'playing' music! You will have an understanding of how to read & play a minimum 3 songs each month, & will be picking up enough music theory as it applies to your instrument each week to feel confident & inspired to continue on as far as you desire. We will learn how to 'play well with others' in informal as well as more structured gatherings every few months, with no pressure, only compassion & encouragement.

For those wishing to join in the fun of playing bluegrass music, we will start out with technique exercises, scales, basic melodies & accompaniment patterns to prepare you to learn this unique & exciting style of American music. There are many gatherings in the area called 'Pickin' Parties' that I want to get you ready to participate in as soon as is humanly possible.

If you are one of those brave souls undertaking the lovely but challenging fretless instrument, the violin, my main focus is to get you started with the all the necessary basic techniques - holding the instrument & bow correctly, getting the best possible tone & pitch using efficiency & accuracy, mixed with a great deal of ear training & heart.

Specific songs you'd like to learn? Your reward for accomplishing what I deem necessary on whichever instrument you've chosen will be for us to listen to your desired piece & writing it out in either or tablature or standard notation.

Piano

About Me

I took Piano lessons from 3rd grade through my first year of college. I worked my way through school playing for my high school chorus, in college playing for a small country church on Sundays, and playing for other family events, weddings and funerals. I earned a Bachelor's Degree of Interdisciplinary Studies with a Concentration in Education in August of 1996 from Western Kentucky University in Bowling Green, KY. I participated in the University Singers and continue to play as often as I can just for fun.

From my earliest years in piano, I have loved the escape music provided for me. During times of joy and of sadness, it has been a constant friend and my love of music continues to grow. As a trained educator, I have seen the proven success piano can give to students of all ages. As a music lover, there's nothing like finding that perfect piece of music, then working on it TIRELESSLY until you get the tempo and expression just right and it just flows so beautifully...it brings such a sense of accomplishment!

I am happy to say I've recently joined the Music Teachers National Association (MTNA). I'm anxious to get to know those in the local chapter here in Hampton Roads and perhaps attend some of the state or national meetings in the future. It will be great to share my success stories and learn from other instructors as well!

*** Lesson Details ***
I like to meet privately with each student (and parent) to assess their level of ability, as well as to gain a feel of their individual personality and their learning style. As a teacher, I know the value of treating each student with their style and personality in mind, so I try to make my teaching very individualized. I find students thrive more using this method of instruction.

I currently use the Bastien method for both young beginners, elementary and adult students, however I occasionally use the Alfred method as well. Along with these instructional books/levels, I supplement with individually chosen pieces, sheet music and books based on the child’s interests and abilities. I also mix theory and finger work as needed.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Lessons take place in my living room where there is an upright Yamaha piano, seating for parents is available, there is also a music station in the office. I sometimes supplement piano time with computerized instruction and games which help to develop note reading skills.

*** Specialties ***
Classical genre...I use Bastien (levels primer to 4) and Schaum (Primer to 6) instruction methods. I use Alfred, Schaum supplemental materials and others as needed.

Guitar, Music Performance, Music Theory, Piano, Singing

About Me

Music has been an integral part of my world, playing a major role in both my personal and professional life. I embrace the chance to be immersed in it, to share my enthusiasm for and expertise in the area of the music education experience, promoting creative development and student performance skills.

I am an original New Yorker, but have lived in Virginia Beach for the past 12 years. I began studying piano at the age of 8 and have not stopped playing since. It is a gift and a joy to be able to share my love of music performance with people of all ages and abilities. I have also sung in many choirs in addition to performing professionally on the piano and the guitar, both as a soloist and ensemble member.

I rejoice in the success that I see in my students as they learn and gain appreciation for the gift of music. They become more and more eager to share and more and more open to the possibilities ahead.

*** Lesson Details ***
I listen well to my students. They are free and encouraged to express their goals and soon, they become more and more comfortable doing so. They begin to understand that even though I am their instructor, we are working as a team and that my goals for them are directly tied to the goals they have set for themselves.

My teaching style is natural, relaxed and yet, very enthusiastic, all at the same time. I have patience in abundance and my continual student affirmation is well received. I give most attention to personalizing instruction for each of my students. My passion for musical expression is contagious and readily shared. It is a joy to teach music, to contribute to the growth and delight that I witness through a student's progress.

I have taught music to both children and adults, from beginner to advanced levels. My teaching approach remains the same, save for the goals that suit the specific student, which we discover early on, sometimes even at the first session, together, right from the start. My beginning students receive the attention necessary to encourage their desire to persevere, which includes positive feedback (which is abundant) and a teaching style that fits his/her level of learning. My student's success is my goal. This is my jubilant mission.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Piano, guitars, mini-amp.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I own 4 guitars, 1 classical, 2 acoustic/electric, and 1 electric, which I can provide for the lesson, if necessary.
