My approach is fun, simple, and easy to understand. I focus on getting a strong foundation and excellent first experience with music. The child will be given a lesson and theory book to work from, but will also be encouraged to play music they personally like. This keeps the child motivated to play and adds an element of fun! These songs can then be used in our recitals, for auditions, or put in their personal repertoire book.
I have my Master's Degree in piano performance. I am an experienced teacher(30 years) as I taught at the Settlement schools in Philadelphia with all levels and backgrounds for 16 years. Some students were extremely talented.
I have had my own studio in my home since 1999.
I'm also great with beginners and intermediate students.
I love teaching, so it really doesn't matter what level the student has attained.
I teach beginning piano students the basics of music theory and of good technique. I help them to understand the patterns in the music and improve their reading fluency. We also spend some time discussing the lives and composition styles of different composers. I am comfortable teaching students of all ages and adjust my lessons to fit a student's developmental level and learning style.
