My love for the piano started at the age of thirteen. I majored in Music Education at Frostburg State University, and studied piano under various professors. I have eleven years experience in teaching children and adults the piano. I hope to convey a love of music during lessons. Playing the piano shouldn't be stressful. It should be rewarding, relaxing, and fun.

About Jocelyn H.

I received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Frostburg State University. The piano was my main instrument of study. I have taught piano lessons to people of various ages. I believe that anyone can learn how to play the piano.

Music is an experience that can help boost one's self-esteem. It can bring healing and peace.

*** Lesson Details ***
People consider me a patient and "laid back" piano teacher. I understand the challenges of learning how to play the piano. Students are free to ask questions. To get the best out of a lesson, practice is a must. Method books are used throughout the lesson, and students are encouraged to practice whatever they learn during the lesson. Students will learn songs and exercises according to their level.

I hope to promote a peaceful and calm musical experience for every student.

*** Travel Equipment ***
Students are encouraged to have their own piano or keyboard.

*** Specialties ***
I generally use an age appropriate method book for each student. The main method I like to use is the Alfred's Basic Piano Library. I also add supplemental music, or music of interest as the student progresses.

Jocelyn, has been working with my daughter for about a year. She is very patient and encouraging. The most important thing when I chose to use Takelessons.com was to ensure that those offering their services truly enjoyed their gift. Jocelyn has that gift and she is so enthusiastic about music!!! Highly recommend her for children as well as first time adults!!! Thanks

Jocelyn is very encouraging and understanding. As an older student who had not played regularly for years, she assured me that I really could re- learn the piano.
