I've been playing the piano since the age of 6 and enjoy passing the love of music to others. In 2014, I graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Piano Pedagogy. While there I participated in accompanying different music groups and choirs. Although I do love accompanying others, my passion is to teach piano.
During the initial meeting, I find out what the student wants to accomplish from piano lessons. After hearing what they want I compile a plan of how to achieve his goals. No matter what the goals are for the individual, I give all my students a strong theory foundation and strive to challenge my students in many areas.
I continue to teach out of my home studio and just LOVE it!
I started teaching back in 2009 before college and continued to teach all the way through college. I've worked with young children, teenagers, and adults. I've also been able to teach a child with ADHD and that stretched me as a teacher. Everyone has an ability to play the piano if taught correctly.
