I've taught public school elementary band for 30 years, have been a church organist for 70 years, and taught piano and organ for 57 years. I enjoy teaching music and working with students and believe that learning to read music will enable the student to play with other musicians and enjoy music as much as I have. I try to put myself in the student's place to think as he/she does and help them understand music and perform it.

Dale is an exceptional piano instructor. His program of study is comprehensive and well-designed. He offers patient, thorough instruction, and his many years of experience equip him to tailor lessons to each student's needs and strengths.
I'm extremely pleased with the highly positive experience my children have in studying with him.
