Thanks for checking out my profile! I studied piano for 13 years, including 4 years in college. Additionally, I studied organ for eight years, including four years in college. I have taught lessons on and off for the past six years. I am passionate about music and can't wait to get started with you! *** Lesson Details *** I am laid back, but I do expect to see some effort put forth by the student at every lesson.

I am recent graduate of Music Composition and Theory from Antioch College, and I am a veteran of many bands, having performed in some of the largest venues around the country. I favor a 'learning through experience' instruction style where my students can gain an in-depth understanding of music through the practice of their instrument. My students will quickly and simply learn the essentials of music theory, an understanding of what musical concepts are right for each situation and why, and the ability to compose and improvise musically while they are gaining the technical abilities and skills to flawlessly perform on their instrument. *** Lesson Details *** My students will learn about scale, harmony, and its correct application.

Learning piano should be both fun and rewarding! Lessons should be adapted based on the personality, learning style, experience, and ability of the student. I use methods books, etudes, or popular songs, depending on the students interests, experience, and ability. It all comes down to feeling successful, feeling joy, and learning to play a cool instrument. I have been playing for just over 5 years and have taught several students across the school age spectrum and with varying levels of ability
Good Day! I am a recent graduate of the Baldwin Wallace Conservatory of Music with a degree in music therapy. I have been teaching others throughout my educational experience, beginning my first year of high school. While my main passion is music therapy, I have always enjoyed teaching private lessons and believe it is a great way to help people that I can't reach through music therapy. Playing a musical instrument is a lot of fun and I am greatly interested in sharing that joy with the people around me. Private music lessons are all about finding that joy, success, and fulfillment in learning something new. I'm excited to be reaching out into the community to teach music lessons and I wish you the best of luck in your studies.
