Lesson Details

Piano

Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I've been teaching piano for 7 years. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to recognize note values and the grand staff and as time goes on you'll be able to play more difficult music. I specialize in classical piano and music theory, typically use John Thompson and Faber books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

As an older learner, I didn't think I would be able to pick up the piano so quickly, but Carrie identified my skill level and taught to that. She is patient, and flexible. Thanks, Carrie!

My kids love their lessons and love to practice. They look forward to earning their Bach bucks and the piano games on the iPad.

Carrie Davis and I have been colleagues for the past five years. We have our studio recitals together as well as small student projects. She is one of the most dedicated piano teachers in the Tampa Bay area. A few things that I admire and respect about her is her diligence, efficiency, sensitivity to students and her love for what she does. She has the patience, talent, intelligence and insight to cater to all age groups, which I have learned so much from. She is amazing and hope to work with her for many more years to come.
