I have nearly a decade of experience teaching piano students of all ages, and particularly enjoy working with beginners! I work with students on developing the musical fundamentals that will let them explore any genre they're interested in, whether they dream of playing Beethoven sonatas, keys in a rock band, or hymns at their church.

Note: Prices listed for this subject area are for in-studio and in-home lessons, regardless of genre. I am offering reduced online rates during the Covid-19 pandemic. These are available under "Piano" lessons.

About Emily C.

Hello, I'm Emily, and I'd love to help you on your musical journey!

I have years of experience teaching woodwind and piano lessons to students of all ages and backgrounds, from children beginning band programs and adults picking up a new hobby to serious students working to embark on a career as music performers and educators themselves. I also enjoy working with children and adults with special needs, including students on the autism spectrum.

I currently perform in the clarinet sections of the Evansville Philharmonic, Champaign-Urbana Symphony Orchestra, and the Johnstown Symphony Orchestra. I have also performed with the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Grammy Award-winning Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, and several others. I serve as the Artistic Director of Kamratōn, a chamber ensemble dedicated to women-created and women-curated new music. I’ve played with jazz-fusion ensemble the Afro-Yaqui Music Collective at venues in Pittsburgh and New York City, and I enjoy performing as an improvisor. I’ve also worked as a church pianist, and enjoy teaching all genres of piano performance.

Currently, I lead the bands and ukulele ensemble at St. Vincent in Bedford, IN. I'm happy to answer any questions you might have, and I look forward to meeting you!
