Teaching since:
2011

I'm a passionate and motivated instructor who loves working with students and sharing my love of music. I graduated from Ball State University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Music Education. I started playing piano at the age of 6 and continue to play today in a variety of venues.

I incorporate music theory and history into each lessons as well as composition. Writing their own piano music helps a student stay motivated to learn.

Nothing is more rewarding than seeing my students develop a passion for music! I let each student progress at his or her own pace, in order to fuel that passion. I encourage this by setting realistic goals for my students at each lesson and acknowledging even the small accomplishments. By finding out what inspires a student, I can tailor my instruction to keep them engaged and eager to learn.

Linda is patient and encouraging with my daughter who is a beginner. She is flexible with her schedule and seems to be knowledgeable in piano and teaching methods.

Absolutely great with kids. A former school music teacher. She's very patient and has a good way of explaining so that kids understand. Also easy to work with regarding any appointment changes that arise. She also has ideas and little fun goals and competitions to motivate the students.
