Levels taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I have a unique, extensive background in teaching the art of playing the piano in a private studio, preparatory school and university level settings. I teach all levels from beginner to advanced for ages five through adult.
I have a strong program in note reading and rhythm skills, as well as exploring all dynamic levels on the keyboard using interesting and fun repertoire.
More advanced students learn to use their theory skills to analyze their music to gain a better understanding of the composer's intent.
They also learn finesse as well as nuances in piano technique to apply to their pieces of music.
I've taught for over five decades so I have tons of knowledge and experience!

I took piano lessons from Mrs. Talley from age 10 to age 17. Over that lengthy period of time, I came to realize that composing music is my true passion in life, a realization that I absolutely would not have attained without Mrs. Talley's invaluable guidance. To put it into perspective, I am 22 years old and finishing up my bachelor's degree in Music Theory/Composition, with the intention to continue pursuing the subject at the masters and doctoral level. I hope to be a theory/composition professor some day. Not only did Mrs. Talley provide me with excellent instruction for performing at the piano, she also facilitated my creative streak and let me arrange/compose songs for fun. She would even let me perform my compositions at recitals! These facts all point to what I think are Mrs. Talley's greatest qualities as a teacher: her love for music in all its forms, paired with her desire to see her students succeed at whatever aspect of music they do best in. I am truly grateful to her and I could not recommend another teacher any more highly!

My children have taken piano with Mrs. Talley for 9 years. Mrs. Talley has proven to be a phenomenal teacher who helps her students strive to reach their highest standards. She gives them ample opportunities to perform at recitals, guild and sonata competitions, and multiple other outlets which has helped with confidence building. When Covid halted everything else, Mrs. Talley didn’t skip a beat and followed through with video phone call lessons. There was a year when Mrs. Talley moved away and we had the experience of 2 other piano teachers during her absence. It is hard to find a teacher as dedicated and talented as she.

Ms. Talley is an amazing teacher. She is kind with the children but direct in her expectation. Our kids have learned so much from her. My oldest is writing her own music and Ms. Talley has encouraged and assisted her each step of the way in growing her abilities from a young 1st year student. We have had two students with her and think of her as a member of our extended family.
