I'm a great piano teacher and a fair pianist. I like to focus on attention to detail and creating music that ultimately expresses our hearts.

About Ena A.

Miss Ena is always singing!

From an early age, I have been participating in music activities, such as choir as well as various musicals like 'Oliver' and 'The Sound of Music'. As music has always been one of my best friends. Like water, I enjoy drinking from the wellspring of muse and melody.

I enjoy music most when it is shared with the natural joy of children. I have an extensive background of teaching private voice, piano and guitar to children. It's the best job in the world, getting to watch a child grow through the magic of music! I received my Kindermusik license in Summer 2005. After working with Dana Harris, formerly of 'Dana's School of Music', Dana thought I would be a perfect Kindermusik teacher.

My education is both experience and university based. In 2003, I graduated from Clark College with a 3.7 gpa. During my two and a half years at Clark, I studied voice with April Brookins Duvic. I, then moved on to Portland State University. During my two years at PSU, I studied voice with Margaret Daane and piano with Connie Titterington. I also attended Marylhurst University working towards my BA in voice performance. I am now taking a break from school to work on some fundamental musical training. I study voice with Pollyanna Hancock Moody and studied piano with John Haek. I have done my best work at Marylhurst and plan to return in fall 2008.

My experience ranges from childhood productions to improv comedy groups. It is the joy of music that I shared with my late mother that built such a lifelong foundation. Singing and sharing with mom gave me some great tools for a successful life, but most importantly, it created an unbreakable bond between her and I and myself and music.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons, I'm all about music fun, but I also ask my students to work hard.
I believe a child should feel successful at every lesson. Each person has musicality within them and when a child is ready, I love to help them bring out that inner musician.

We will work on a wide range of aspects in music from theory, ear training, sight reading, rhythm and more. For piano I use the Faber collection. I will make sure getting your materials is easy and uncomplicated.

So, get set and ready to have some super music fun!

*** Studio Equipment ***
Living Room: desk, sofa, parents can sit in on lesson, piano, music stand, small table and music stand for guitar lessons

*** Travel Equipment ***
My students must have an instrument of decent quality. I have them pay for their books, but I pick them up.

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in voice and can teach any genre.

In guitar, I teach theory and folk/ rock methods mostly

In piano, I specialize in teaching kids.
