Learning to play takes time and commitment but it also needs to be enjoyable. We will spend 30% of the time on theory and 70% on playing music from the method book, solo book or other.

About Jenny D.

Private classes allow each person to learn at their pace. I love working with all ages of students, kids through adults. Each one bringing their experiences and love of learning.

*** Lesson Details ***
I believe anyone can learn to play the piano or sing, but you must enjoy what you are doing. Once you have a basic knowledge of the instrument/notes you will be able to start choosing music that you enjoy playing/singing.

*** Studio Equipment ***
I use a Roland Digital Piano to teach my lessons. I use programs on the computer to reinforce musical concepts learned.

*** Specialties ***
I like to use a variety of methods to teach depending on my students likes and abilities.

My children really enjoyed their first lessons, and are looking forward to more. They came home and wanted to practice right away.

I have been going to Jenny for piano lessons two years in August and she is wonderful! So patient and encouraging I started lessons late in life so it is a challenge sometimes and she is always positive even if I'm discouraged at times I have learned so much from her and hope to learn at lot more in the future Best teacher ever!!!!!!!!

Jenny has gone beyond what I'd hoped for, doing research into my voice problems and suggesting so many good ideas.

A very intuitive guide through one's problem areas to succeed. Her vast knowledge and experience give her a broad range of teaching tools she applies tailored to one's needs to bring her students to their next level. And she herself is a great singer with a powerful voice. Thank you Jenny for being a kind, patient, understanding and motivating teacher!

My kids have been taking piano lessons with Jenny for over a year. She is so patient with them, yet pushes them. They have advanced so much. We just love her.

Jenny is a great teacher. She is really in tune with knowing my daughter's level of ability and adjusting her lessons to meet her needs. She is very accommodating with lesson times and makes every effort to provide a comfortable learning environment. I am so glad we found her!

A Great Teacher!

Our son experienced a double-stroke/traumatic brain injury at birth. During his life, my wife and I have constantly implemented as many therapies and different learning environments, as possible. Not surprisingly, we have read how music can facilitate learning for children in various subjects and even enhance many of their skills that could be used in other areas.

As parents, we believe it has been a true blessing, finding a teacher such as Jenny, and we are very fortunate to have her as our son’s piano teacher. Through Jenny’s great patience and teaching methods, our 4-year-old son, today, is able to read and play his notes. We believe that this is possible because Jenny is a very experienced teacher knowing when to modify and implement the lesson plans in order for one to reach their full potential.

What a joy it is to see our son read, comprehend, and play his music. We are greatly appreciative for Jenny’s expertise, patience, and special skill of possessing the ability to teach many walks of life how to play the piano.

Jenny does a great job!

I have little background in music, but with others playing instruments in my home, I decided to learn the piano. I knew Jenny gave lessons, so I immediately contacted her about arranging to teach me. I've chosen to learn to play by actually learning some more advanced material. She has been exceptionally patient and understanding; I don't always get to practice as much as I would like due to other commitments. Jenny has shared techniques and her years of wisdom to help me progress. I have been working with Jenny for about 8 months and am pleased with the progress I am making. I highly recommend her!
