About Darla

Hello, I am a professional musician with over 21 years of service as a military bandsmen. I've been stationed all over the world and have had the privilege to perform in some of the greatest concert halls. I love to work with students of all ages and can teach beginning-intermediate piano, and beginning-advanced flute. Prior to joining the military, I taught general music in the Texas Public School system. I have a bachelor€'™s degree in music education from the University of Texas at Arlington. I am a very active flutist in this area, performing with The Tidewater Winds, The Hampton Roads Phi
lharmonic, and various small chamber groups.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe in creating a very positive environment for my students. I am very patient and upbeat. Whether you are a beginner, or more advanced, I can tailor the lessons to your needs. I will give you a solid foundation in the fundamentals of music in a creative and fun way! I enjoy working with students of all ages. If you are just starting to learn, or have decided to come back to music lessons, I believe you will enjoy studying with me! ***Also, be advised, that if you are a beginner, I only teach 30 minute lessons! This is best for all beginners, whether a young student, or an adult student!! (Also, FYI, we do have cats in our home!)

I am returning to piano as an adult after many years away. Darla did a great job assessing and understanding where I am on the learning curve now and laying out a plan forward from there. She is very positive, encouraging and excited to teach others. I am looking forward to working with her to become a better player.

My daughter was reluctant to take lessons (she's 14 and way to busy for anything so ... useful), but began to really look forward to them as soon as the first one was over. Lisa was able to quickly assess my daughter's ability and interests and tailor the lessons to get her excited. We've both enjoyed having Lisa as her teacher and I highly recommend her!
