Lesson Details

My students will learn basic piano instruction, music theory, chords and scales, rymthem and dynamics, and to express themselves thru music of there choice. Mrs G's Piano students all earn points for there practice time, lessons, duets, recitals, memorization and use those points to compete against themselves and earn prizes. Two recitals are held a year to promote confidence and accountability. I prefer the Alfred series for teaching piano lessons on my digital piano because it is fun and easy to learn with quick results. All the student needs to do is practice.

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 loves going to piano with Brenda. She is an excellent teacher!

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 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.
