I teach beginning gospel piano. I studied classical piano and know theory and can teach how to read music, however I teach gospel piano using a mix of playing by ear and understanding basic chord and scale structures. I also spent much of my career as a journalist and writing grants for nonprofits. I love the English language and we can have fun learning words together!

About Aimee S.

I teach gospel piano and beginner piano, flute, chess and English/ESL. I can also assist with editing resumes and documents and writing grants (government and private foundations).

Use your ears, use your fingers and all the other gifts God gave you to assist during your local worship service. I come from a long line (4 generations) of church musicians. I trained classically on piano and flute - and can teach the basics for both instruments across genres. I have also been a journalist for The Associated Press (gotta have a day job!). And have done grant writing work for nonprofits. I can help you improve your English writing and speaking skills. And I love to play chess (gotta have a hobby!). But when it comes to Gospel - you need a little theory and a lot of heart and soul to develop your musical ear! Come join me at my storefront church or we can meet up online. After you get the scales and common chord structures down, you'll be ready to go!
