Overview

I'm very passionate about the benefits of piano lessons and do my best to make it fun and exciting and rewarding. You will learn on my digital piano with weekly lessons and expectation of you practicing every day for at least 20 minutes. Points are given for your accomplishments with prizes for all at the end of the month. Holiday and fun music is learned along with Two recitals a year should you choose to participate. Expression and enthusiasm, and building confidence is what I'm all about. I'm friendly and outgoing, and allow flexibility in my schedule to reschedule lessons if we must. So come and let your light shine with me!

Experience

Pianist

Feb 1994 - Present
The Church of Jesus Christ of LDS

As a student taking piano lessons back in 1971 at age 11 I never thought I would be playing for God. I simply enjoyed learning to play the piano, singing with my family, and expressing my feelings through playing. I did dream however of performing in concerts and here I am today, teaching others to play the piano and performing for God playing the piano for church service and teaching music in Sunday School with the primary children.

My daughter has been taking lessons for 9 months and just did a 4 page duet with Mrs. 'G " at a recital. She is very energetic; she encourages and gives awards which the young kids respond to; sometimes her cat comes to listen. No pressure and the kids can pick some of the advance books of songs they like. We go in person but she is now open to Face Time lessons. She is also very flexible for sick days; snow days, and the typical crazy kid activity schedule. If you like personal, friendly postitive energy...Mrs. "G" is your teacher!

My Grandaughter, Lydia, is 8 years old and has been taking lessons from Mrs. "G"
since last September. Immediately, Lydia, felt welcome and comfortable. She has been in two recitals, and was in the Talent show at her school. We are all amazed at her proficiency at this early stage of learning. Her confidence in performing before an audience is all due to the way Mrs. "G" teaches. She makes the lessons fun and rewarding. I would recommend Brenda Ginther to any children interested in piano lessons. She is a joy to be with and Lydia loves her.

My granddaughter Kira told me she loves Brenda and hope she never has any other teacher. A huge endorsement from a 7 year old !

My son just started lessons and Mrs. Ginther is very enthusiastic and has been flexible with our schedule. She's also very patient when I have to bring my younger kids along too.
