I advocate for student centered learning as well as engagement through play and exploration. Your typical 30 minute lesson would include: Creative movement and stretching, rhythm games, working on repertoire in a variety of unique ways, playing and listening by ear, and learning and putting into practice different music theory concepts. My primary goal is to find what you love to play and work our lessons around that. If you don't enjoy the music you are playing, there is no motivation to practice!
I have been teaching lessons for 5 years and welcome any beginner to intermediate students.

About Anne B.

I am a current elementary music teacher who is also a professional pianist, singer, and clarinet player. I graduated from Goshen College with a bachelors in Music Education.

Students can expect to love lessons and improve immensely in technical skills as well as aural skills (playing by ear). Being an educator allows me to tailor lessons specifically to student levels and learning styles. Students can guarantee a unique and positive learning environment.

I studied piano for 17 years, clarinet for 12 years, and voice for 6 years. I can teach students to read music, achieve musical excellence, and challenge students to create and explore songs through musical patterns and chord progressions. My flexible teaching allows students to enjoy lessons yet holistically progress in their music skills.

For me, lessons are all about the student. You are important. I care what you are interested in and want you to have the best experience possible.
I personally gravitate toward classical music, however, teach a variety of music including jazz, contemporary, classical, and more.
Take lessons with me and I will foster a lifelong joy and passion for music making and creating built on a foundation of music theory and technique.

Anne is an amazing music teacher! My daughter has never really been into instruments or music until Anne came along. My daughter has been taking ukulele lessons online with Anne and it has been a very positive experience! She is very positive, encouraging, and patient and if my daughter is struggling, she has a lot of tricks up her sleeve to offer support! I think the highlight so far was when she taught my daughter to play happy birthday to her eight year old cousin! We HIGHLY recommend her!

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Anne for 5 years. She is an exceptional teacher - patient, fun, and encouraging. She guides improvement through questioning the student and allowing the student to make some choices. Anne makes sure skills are introduced, practiced, and then reviewed repeatedly so understanding and good habits are established and built upon. My daughter is showing continual progress and is becoming more skilled and confident in her playing. Great instructor!
