Lesson Details

Piano

Levels Taught:
Beginner
Music is a beautiful language! I love helping others discover that beauty and express themselves through it.

I teach beginning piano for children and teens. Lessons will begin with an assessment of your personal skill level, and lesson plans will be based on what you hope to achieve. My students learn proper terminology, fingering techniques, theory, and musicality. They will receive basic knowledge of music and be able to apply it on the keys.

My goal is for students to come away from each lesson with new knowledge and skills and to have fun while learning!

Hi! My name is December and I am a 28 year old lover of music and crafts!

Music was instilled in me from a very young age with piano lessons, and I grew up playing the piano, flute, and singing in choirs. I graduated from Grove City College with a degree in vocal music, and always looked forward to teaching piano and voice lessons during the summer months. My students appreciate that lessons are fun and worthy of their time. You will not walk away from a lesson without new knowledge and skills!

In my spare time, I usually have some craft in hand. Knitting has become a favorite hobby of mine, and being mostly self taught, I love helping others discover how easy and rewarding it can be!

My goal is to help you have fun while practicing your skills, and to learn something new and attainable at each lesson. Lessons will be based on your current skill level and will increase in difficulty based on your own rate of learning. I believe that learning should be fun, rewarding, and purposeful. I am very easy going, but also want to help hold you to the standard of learning that will help you advance your studies.
