I have minored/self-taught myself in sing alto, guitar, handbells, organ, voice, and percussion for approximately eight years. I enjoy learning and teaching music to others. *** Travel Equipment *** I am able to travel to your house. I have a portable piano keyboard for anyone that does not have one but I do expect the parents to invest in some type of piano and/or keyboard. I can also provide the books they will need.
