I've been teaching piano for over 10 years and my students have gone on to play professionally, become teachers themselves, and develop a love of music. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to play fun simple songs at the piano. and as time goes on you'll be able to read musical notation,understand basic music theory, and play classical or contemporary pieces. I typically use Bastein, Alfred, or Faber method books depending on the students age and ability . I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Erin W.

I am an enthusiastic, caring, and patient voice and piano instructor. I am passionate about both music and teaching.
I began playing piano when I was 9 years, and began classical vocal instruction at the age of 10. I have been teaching both voice and piano since 2004. I received my Bachelors of Music in Music Therapy in 2013. I believe passionately in the healing and restorative power of music. My teaching methods are based on traditional practices and pedagogy while also incorporating my student’s musical preferences, and personal goals. My main goal as a teacher is to help each student reach their highest musical potential while developing a life-long love for music.


*** Lesson Details ***
I am a relaxed and patient teacher. I use positive reinforcement in order to help inspire and motivate my students. I do expect my students to play and/or sing outside of lessons, but I will never make my students feel anything but proud of their accomplishments as a musician.
My piano students will learn note reading, proper fingering, posture and technique, music theory, chord theory, ear training, and performance.
My voice students will learn proper posture, breathing, vocal technique and alignment. They will also learn how to sing in many different styles, or if they wish we can focus on specific genre of music.
Within 3-6 months my students will have a much greater understanding of music, and will have developed a passion for playing their instrument or singing.


*** Specialties ***
I use many different method books when teaching piano and am most comfortable with the Bastien series and Alfreds. When teaching voice I draw on many different methods and am comfortable teaching classical, pop, musical theater, and jazz.

Erin is a breath of fresh air. No matter what the problem she is there to help and her skills are impeccable! Erin really knows how to teach and I am very happy as I continue learning. I am an older person and Erin has the patience needed to work with anyone. I highly recommend Erin and I love it when she sings, what a wonderful voice.

Erin is great to work with. She has a very easy going and positive personality, and yet gets the student to work hard and practice. She is flexible and willing to adjust hours and days when things come up.
She occasionally will cancel with various family or personal issues, so your flexibility is needed as well.
Overall, we have been happy with our daughters progress and motivation.
Thanks Erin!

I've been taking lessons with Erin for about 2 years, and I couldn't be happier with her. I'm a thirty something newbie, and with her guidance and support I'm at a level I would have never imagined before. She encourages and trusts, while putting the right amount of pressure to practice and try. Erin is caring and patient, and genuinely wants to see me succeed in my goals. If you have to choose a teacher, she's the best one around!

There are several qualities in Erin that make her a very good teacher/instructor. Patience and focus to not let the student sway too far off the "BOOK" (or for to long),
Firmness, sense of humor, knowlege and abilty to answer all my questions. Professionalism and flexibilty(on some areas). There are many more fine points, I would definitely (and have) recommended Erin to someone else.

Erin is a fantastic voice teacher! She is very kind and encouraging. I was extremely anxious starting out, but she made it very comfortable and safe for me to sing. I always look forward to our lessons, and I hear improvement in my voice every single week. Her advice has made all the difference.

Starting from zero - as an adult student who never knew anything about music other than listening on the radio - Erin has extreme patience, understanding and keen sense to figure out a way to teach that I will understanding it. Learning music is really hard and I could have easily lost interest but she has made it must easier, fun ans satisfying. I can can enough good things about her style - I highly recommend her!!!
