Overview

I'm a classically trained pianist. I graduated from West Chester University with my Bachelor's Degree in Piano Performance in 1985. I then went on to Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. where I earned my Masters degree in Piano Performance in 1987. Beginning in 1987 I taught at the Settlement Music Schools in Philadelphia. I remained there for 16 years working with virtually every level of student from beginner to advanced. From 2004 to the present I have been teaching in my own home studio in West Chester, Pa.

*** Lesson Details ***
I am an energetic, experienced, sincere, and patient teacher. I emphasize learning to read music as I believe this is the most important skill a student can possess. I also emphasize theory to help the student get a true knowledge of how music is put together. My goal is to help you understand music so that you can learn on your own!

*** Studio Equipment ***
dedicated music room; 7 foot Steinway B grand piano

*** Specialties ***
I'm a classically trained pianist. I teach students to read music. I teach all kinds of music not just classical.

Sharon is absolutely a wonderful teacher! She pays attention to a lot of details and focuses on the technical skills, yet brings out the entire harmony out of classical music. This is exactly what I am looking for as a coach that also gives inspiration. I absolutely enjoy her classes and she provides a very nice and comfy environemnt at her studio.

There has been a sudden life style change and I am moving to Chicago within the week so I will not be able to take lessons. I am so disappointed as Sharon was so wonderful and I know we could have done good together.Dr. Tom
