Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate
Jessica’s Holistic Approach Piano Studio, LLC
A holistic and relevant approach to teaching piano and music skills to anyone.

Holistic Approach

The phrase “Holistic Approach” simply means that I teach the student, not the lesson. Every student has a different learning style, goal, strengths and weaknesses. It means I will teach all the elements of music in context of the big picture, not just learn the written language of music. It means I will think outside the box and customize the learning journey to help each student reach their own potential.

My goal is to facilitate students’ own exploration of the piano and its language so that they can learn to play anything independently. It’s a matter of “learning how to learn,” and making connections between all of the knowledge they gain. That comes through a functional, relevant introduction to music, as opposed to going through the motions of a method book alone, to memorize numerous isolated facts and repeat them indefinitely.

I am still not a perfect player and I can’t make any guarantees you’ll be a concert pianist. I am confident, however, that I can teach you in a more effective and balanced way to help you gain the skills you need to play better; whether casually or more formally.

I am the pianist at Christ Church Fraser in Fraser, MI and I also play for weddings, funerals, and other events.
