I've been teaching piano/keyboard studies to beginner and intermediate students for five years now. As a student in Berea College, I taught lessons both to college students as well as students who were residents in the town of Berea, KY. Here's how I teach: imagine a sound, play a sound, and reflect on a sound. This approach helps you learn music on your own. We will collaborate together to tackle a hard piece, your favorite piece. We will learn the beauty of how scales/chords make music.
*** Studio Equipment *** Lessons in the living room of my home. The student and I will collaborate on a Yamaha upright piano. An accessible sound system will be readily available for cases where the student and I might want to listen to the playing of the student. *** Specialties *** For all ages. The basic approach I take in my teaching method can be summed into three parts: imagine a sound, play a sound, and reflect on the sound. This strategy will be used for technical studies of scales, studies of Classical compositions, and studies of the students favorite song. The ultimate goal is help the student grow into a musician who can learn on his/her own. An additional skill of improvisation will be taught and encouraged through the use of learning scales, chords, etc.

Both my mom and dad were musicians and taught private lessons at home, so I grew up wanting to be a part of the music making. Now I am a university music educator who performs frequently as a soloist and collaborative pianist. I hold piano performance degrees from Carnegie Mellon and Yale. In addition, I've studied chamber music at the American Conservatory in Fontainebleau (France) and vocal accompanying at the Mozarteum in Salzburg, Austria. I perform as a church musician, choral accompanist, and recital pianist in traditional and more modern styles. I'm active as a collaborative artist in competitions, auditions, and recordings. In the past three years I've been studying ballroom dancing for fun and as an extension of my interest in experiencing music from the standpoint of total body
I have been teaching piano for over five years. My students have started with no knowledge of music and gone on to study advanced piano. Within the first few lessons you will be able to play basic songs on the piano and overtime you will be able to read music with ease. I specialize in beginning classical piano and pop keyboard-style piano. I typically use a combination of Faber & Faber curriculum and my own curriculum which teaches pop chords and improvisation. I love working with students of all levels and look forward to meeting you!
