An experienced educator specializing in student-focused lessons. Not every method will work for every student, therefore I will seek to customize the lessons to the students. My goal is to guide the students in reaching their goals and helping them enjoy the process. My skill areas are classical training, music theory, sight-reading, playing with expression, rhythms, chords and keys, accompanying, church music, error correction, and proper positioning. All ages and skill levels are welcome. Questions are welcome.

About Gwendolyn A.

Looking for experience? Customized lessons? Encouraging feedback? Positive error correction? With a wide range of teaching experiences and a love of education, I am always searching for the best methods for my students. Seeking the best way to guide my students began with my education degree yet continues in my professional development. I bring decades of music and teaching knowledge and ask for my students to bring their willingness to grow as a player and/or student. I can be your instructor of technique and knowledge, your cheerleader to celebrate your successes, and your coach to guide you to reach your goals. Learning is a joy, a gift, and a journey that is best celebrated with others.

Questions and requests for alternate times welcome.
