Morgan L. Hickory, NC

About Morgan

My philosophy is simple, to provide quality music education to adults and children of all ages for an affordable price. Everyone deserves a good musical education, but money should not be the deciding factor when a child or adult wants to take lessons. I believe that music instruction should be enjoyable, built on a solid technical foundation, inspire creativity, and match each individual's goals. Learning an instrument -€” like the piano, for instance -€” has many proven benefits. Playing music both assists in children's development and enriches the lives of adults.
