The piano is truly a key to understanding music and a pathway to great enjoyment. I provide an excellent foundation with solid technique and music literacy. Your tuition includes not only your lessons appointments and my expertise, but also customized materials and prep time. Part or all of on-line lessons can be recorded and referred to during practice sessions. Studio lessons are enhanced by enrichment classes and optional performance opportunities. Participation in ensembles is highly recommended and supported.

About Edna B.

Welcome to my Music Studio where you can learn the skills you need to reach your musical dreams. It's a privilege to collaborate with students pre-school through retirees. Together we explore the satisfying process of reaching musical goals. After earning a Bachelor of Music Education, I studied Kodaly Music Education while applying the methodology in school and studio. I've helped many students thrive, and I'd love to help you do the same. I offer over 30 years performing and teaching experience, a genuine enjoyment of people, and a high standard of professional ethics.

I'm checking out new flutes and Edna was very kind to listen to the four flutes I am testing out. She's not only a great flute teacher but also a great resource person.

I have been taking lessons from Edna for 6 months and am amazed with her teaching skills! She is so kind, patient and easy to learn from. She also sends a lot of "extras" via email to play and practice on :))) I highly recommend Edna for lessons.

This was my first official lesson with Edna and it was pretty good. Considering the fact that I haven't had a full lesson in almost a year, it was good for me to connect with a flute instructor that could pin point some strengths and weaknesses. She was also very cheerful and we could identify with faith based music, as well as other genres. She was interested in knowing about me wanting to be well-rounded in all different types of genres. I'm looking forward to next weeks second lesson. Sherina

Great lesson. Worked on facial and mouth exercises including yawning to relax muscles in the mouth and throat. Worked on lower register by focusing on keeping lips slightly moving downward like a slightly inverted smile.

Edna is a seasoned professional with proven experience in developing a wide range of students at varying skill levels. Her passion for music and teaching is evident, and she goes 'the extra mile' to creatively tailor her approach to each student's goals, needs, and musical preferences. She also incorporates music theory, history, and a variety of performance opportunities into her studio options. My sons have greatly enjoyed musical activities with Edna, and as a music teacher myself (now out-of-state), I highly recommend her.
