After teaching for several years and seeing what works best for students, I've learned that the best way to teach piano is to first teach you the patterns that are in music. We couple that with learning piano fingering patterns, how to read music, and a little bit about the different styles and techniques of piano. I can teach you to do virtually anything you can dream of with the instrument in what typically is about a 6 month process. :)

About Ashleigh S.

Hello, and thanks for visiting! I have been teaching piano, voice, & various aspects of music for 10+ years now. I have a degree in Sound Engineering from Texas State University (2011), with a piano focus. More importantly, I've been playing the piano & singing for 27 years, and have developed a deep love for all things music.

I write my own music & perform nationally playing piano & singing. I have also done over 500 classical performances & worked as an accompanist at the college level. You can visit my webpage at: http://www.ashleighstonemusic.com.

I prefer to ask my students what their main goal is and work from there. Most students don't want to be classical pianists. Many of the students I work with just want to be able to play songs, write songs, or jam with their friends. I can teach you all of those things as well as the traditional piano and classical methods.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you realize your musical dreams.

As a local music teacher and performer who has worked with Ashleigh on many occasions, I highly recommend her to teach piano, voice, and any other music instruction. She is a first-rate musician with an extensive knowledge of theory and piano technique. And, her pleasant nature makes her very comfortable to be around!
