Dr. S. believes that great playing is derived from great technique. Technique is an essential part of becoming a successful musician. Dr. S. helps her students perfect their technical abilities allowing them to explore vast musical repertoire.

Musicality is what brings music to life. Every musician has their own unique ideas that are expressed through their playing. Dr. S. helps her students develop their natural creative instincts and convey their ideas through their music.

Learning how to play music is fun and rewarding, however it also requires a great deal of self discipline. Practicing your instrument consistently is necessary to become a successful musician. Music is a fun way to learn the value of hard work and self discipline for students of all ages.

Abby has been very patient with me. I am learning a new instrument and slow right now. She is teaching me the proper techniques that will build in playing the harp beautifully as it is meant to be. I am building strength and gaining muscle memory. Abby is a great teacher. I recommend her to any serious learner.

Abigail is wonderful she is passionate about what she does and dedicated to really making sure her student learns and excel at piano playing. She encourages and compliments her student when a job is well done. She's patient with my sometimes unenthusiastic child and never discouraging. Amazing!
