Hello to all potential students. I have been teaching piano for 42 years. This has been a truly rewarding experience for me over the years. I studied piano beginning at eight years, old enjoying many different types of music. I excelled because of my dedication and love of piano. I did go to college for music and have been teaching piano ever since.
I enjoy all types of students from beginners to intermediate, trying to keep the lessons interesting and designed for each individual students' need. For beginners, we will learn how to read notes, keep time/rhythm, use of positioning and correct use of posture, and the many facets of reading and loving music. It is also important to learn the discipline of practice and learn the love of playing this beautiful instrument. For students who have some knowledge of music and/or piano, we will find where you are at and go on from there.
I continue my love of music by accompanying for a choral group for 40 years and directing/designing musical shows. Music is a wonderful gift and piano is a great choice.
If you are looking for a knowledgeable, experienced, and (very) patient piano teacher, look no further. As an adult learner....with absolutely NO piano playing experience...I can honestly say that Gail started from where I was, and we gradually moved forward from there. Lessons are always fun, and light-hearted, in a serious kind of way.
Honestly...if I can get from, "Which one is middle C?" to Chopin, with Gail as my piano teacher, she must be good (did I mention VERY patient?).
