Want to get past playing those favorite memorized tunes such as chopsticks, Fur Elise, or Twinkle Twinkle Little Star? Then, why not supplement your instrumental study with in-depth music theory that will catapult you into applying yourself beyond musician to potential songwriter or even teacher? I am willing to adapt the lessons learned to fit your situation, whether it is to enhance vocal or instrumental perfection, or simply to learn for purposes of becoming a music composer. Topics covered: page reading, perfecting keyboard, rhythm notation, key and time signature, varied scales, chords, and much more.

About Joni C.

I am a college graduate and lifetime learner of musical artistry having 4 years practical piano teaching experience after 25 years of employment at a local higher education institution. I can engage the beginner in such a way that they will be motivated to continue into advanced and a professional level. I started my own music education at the age of 5 and have loved music ever since. My music career began in 3rd grade when I performed in a musical play and participated in vocal choral groups. I continued to improve in piano and vocal skill and traveled extensively with a national organization and a college representative team. My travels took me to Europe where I had the privilege to perform in places such as Notre Dam, palace of Versailles, the Basilica in Rome and other places. I teach any style of music from classical to gospel. I have a strong classical background so I enjoy teaching all my students, even as young as 4 to learn about and play classical pieces (e.g. Beethoven, Bach, Mozart). Since my vocal involvement has allowed me to participate in school, church and community music groups and singing solo, I have a strong background in pianist accompaniment which is a unique skill that every piano musician should master. This creates a well rounded approach so that the pianist can participate and showcase their talent in various ways. I like to teach students to play beyond what is in the written page, and to develop a musical ear through improvisation and memorization. My students have the opportunity to play in optional recitals with other students and for family.

My 4 yr. old has started with teacher Joni and she LOVES her classes! Teacher Joni is very sweet and gentle and even though the classes seem short, it's perfect for a 4 yr. old and she actually learns a ton!
My daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons with Joni!

Ms. Joni started teaching my son piano lessons in Sep 2015. My son was 5 when he started attending her classes. It is amazing how much he has progressed in 9 months. He is able to read notes and can play with both hands. The one thing I have noticed about her way of teaching is that, she does not give up. She always tries to find a new ways to help kids learn when they are struggling. She adapts to kids ways of learning and doing things, and makes changes to help learn easily. That, I believe, is one of the reasons her classes are so effective and kids do not feel intimidated. I would highly recommend her.

My son LOVES piano lessons with Ms. Joni; he is delighted to practice, loves going to lessons, and is very proud of himself. This is not our first music teacher, and this certainly hasn't always been the case. I'm sure we will hit a normal bump or two down the road, but we are thrilled to have found an excellent teacher (it really does make all the difference). I highly recommend her.

She's very good in handling beginners, let alone a 7-year old boy that has no experience. She explains it very well with my son!
