Marianne L.

Clovis, CA

About Marianne

My name is Marianne, Ph.D. I teach Classical Piano, my price includes all books and materials! I must insist on only serious students, that means that parents must be involved enough to make sure daily practice is done and for young students to be in the room while they practice. Parent participation is SO important, you only have to be in the room to offer encouragement. My practice requirements are based on "repetitions", not that takes the pressure off the parent AND me! Your student will be playing after the first lesson! I have been teaching for 35 years and am a Julliard
graduate. I am also trained to teach students with special needs! Looking forward to meeting you and heading off to "Music Land"!
