Jennifer is an absolutely amazing instructor. She is not only knowledgeable of her craft but engages and cares about her students. She is skilled to help any voice part at any age and actively goes out of her way to learn what she doesn’t know to best help her students. I loved taking lessons with her.

Are you a beginner piano player interested in learning how to play your favorite songs? Do you like how the piano sounds and want to learn what each note is or how to take control of the instrument? Are you a singer looking to grow with your vocal exercises and learn how to play scales?

I learned how to play piano 4 years ago when I started teaching music lesson. When I first started I was teaching voice, so I had to learn scales and chords to be able to warm up and accompany the students I was working with. Pretty soon I was playing piano with my students for their recitals, and quickly I learned how to utilize the piano either for performance or practice!

Whether you are planning on leading with it, using it as accompaniment to someone else/yourself, or just want to learn for fun as a hobby, I can teach you all you need to know for your beginner piano studies! If you have any questions, please message me!

About Mikala

Want to learn how to play or sing your favorite song? Are you interested in learning how to write your own songs? Since the start of my teaching career 4 years ago, my lessons have expanded to include guitar, ukulele, bass, piano, drums, singing, and even songwriting! I'm eager to help you find

Whether you are looking for music lessons for your child or yourself, learning the piano is the place to start. The piano is the perfect instrument for learning music theory, developing dexterity and challenging your mind. Getting to a point where you can actually play songs comes quickly relative to other instruments.
I have taught music for over 35 years. I would love to get you started on the piano.

We met Gary today and he came in with the most upbeat attitude and a wealth of knowledge even in this first session. We look forward to having my brother grow and develop as a musician alongside Gary!

Mr. Gary is a kind and wonderful teacher who has worked with our son for a while now. Mr. Gary is so good at not only handling the fundamentals and details, but also deepening his students' love of music.
He provides great feedback, always with kindness, and being very clear on how to achieve the particular goal.
If you want your child to have music as something they'll have their whole life, Mr. Gary is a great person to teach them.
