First, we'll talk about your goals and what you want from the lessons. If you're a beginner, within the first few lessons, you'll be playing simple songs with both hands. I have been playing the piano since I was 6 and started teaching lessons at 16. I love teaching beginning and intermediate students. I typically use the Alfred books depending on age. I focus on a strong music theory foundation and solid practice techniques. We'll use audio and/or video recording to make sure you have an example to take home with you to practice with each session. I can't wait to meet you!

About Betty I.

I have worked as a registered nurse for 29 years and have taught nursing in the academic setting for ten years. I love working one on one with nursing students and have been asked to tutor many times over the years. If you're struggling with ABGs, Maternal Newborn or just need help overall to pass that do or die exam, come see me!

As for music, I have played the piano since I was 6 years old and have taught lessons on and off for the last 35 years (depending on my work schedule as a nurse). My training is in classical piano, but I have expanded to contemporary piano and piano accompaniment for soloists and choirs. I received organ training in college and have played many years for my local congregation. As for vocal training, I started at age 14 and have sung as a soloist and in various choirs. I love working with beginners and intermediate students.

If you have questions, please let me know. I'd love to help!

Betty is great at identifying what my child needs to be successful. She listens and adjusts quickly when needed. She always ends her lessons with a fun activity which makes the my child walk away smiling and feeling proud.

Today was my first lesson. Betty is a great instructor and very kind and patient. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to learn to play the piano.
