I have taught piano for many years and studied piano since I was a child. I have a bachelors in music and have worked in a top classical studio in my background.
My Background in Music: My inspiration first started when I was seven years old and in second grade. I was pondering if I wanted to dedicate myself to the music field. A substitute piano teacher came in that day and played and my admiration decided me to pursue this ambition for my life work. I studied and played guitar and auto-harp as a child because of our lack of piano. The guitar was a gift and I played it for years and studied vocal music throughout school. When I was a young teenager I started playing with a group that I met in a barn and I was thrilled. Many other musicians have been part of my story and as a young person I studied privately with such greats as Michelle Barone Horsefield as well as with with studio musicians such as the Scott Steeleman Studio and ...

I had my first piano lesson when I was five years old. I performed my first piano solos for audiences at school events. I joined the keyboard team at church when I was thirteen years old. I quickly learned to improvise and accompany. It was exciting to discover that I could study piano in college. I earned my way by accompanying voice and instrument choirs, rehearsals, lessons, and recitals. I enjoy helping other people excel, so I chose a teaching degree over a performance degree. In 1991, I graduated with my bachelor of music degree in piano pedagogy. I immediately began teaching private and group piano lessons, building my studio over fifteen years to reach nearly 600 students ages five to seventy-five. I accompanied community choirs, local vocal artists, and students ...
Lessons and curriculem are tailored to the students abilities and interests. Traditional note reading and/or chord chart playing, classical or popular music with improvisation skills can be pursued.
However, beginners should understand that there are skills everyone needs to begin with to progress. I incorporate duet playing to enhance beginner songs and to teach ensemble playing at all levels.
Most of my students pursue piano for their own enjoyment or for ensemble,church and social gatherings. However, because of 2 years of piano study at the University level, I am very comfortable with those who wish to prepare for competition and advanced study.

My classical training is also enhanced by participation in Broadway, contemporary, folk, pop music and sacred music styles. Teaching at various private ...
I've started taking piano lessons at age 6 while living in the gorgeous country of Luxembourg in Western Europe and I have been in love with the instrument ever since. Through various phases and methods of learning, I developed a quite eclectic style which allows me to adapt according to the setting and the venue. Through a solid understanding of music theory and a foundation in different genres, I accommodate the student's musical desires by introducing new concepts and approaches that will make him/her a better musician.
I'm a recent graduate from Southeastern University with a degree in Music Performance. I've been raised in a family of musicians while living in Europe. I've been exposed and instructed in various genres through different musical approaches and methods ranging from Classical to Jazz both on the piano as well as on percussion/drums. The songwriting projects that I've worked on (in and out of studios) are also part of my artistic experience and I enjoy sharing some insight in that area as well as any aspects related to music performance. I am currently expanding my musical journey across neighboring cities in the US such as Lakeland, Orlando and Jacksonville, FL. I'm open to teach students of all ages with a willingness to learn and I'm willing to customize my teaching method to the student.
I have over 30 years of training and 13 years of instructional experience in Piano. Areas of expertise are Classical Piano, Suzuki method and repertoire methods including Faber & Faber and Alfred, Disney and Pop music as well.
I am a professional instructor with over 12 years private and group music instruction experience across a variety of instruments. I have been teaching students and performing throughout Central Florida for many years with great enjoyment. I teach ages 3 through Adult.
