I have taught private piano lessons to all ages and levels for more than forty years. I teach sightreading, rhythm, musical expression, technique and music theory. The student will need either a piano or keyboard available for practicing between lessons. Titles of method books to be purchased will be given to the parent at the first lesson. If a student has books that were used with a previous teacher, I will consider continuing in those books if they are the appropriate level for the student. I enjoy sharing my love of music with my students. I am a patient teacher and I consider the individuality and goals of each student. I was a church organist and accompanist for many years.

Today was the first lesson ever for my six year old daughter. Miriam was very welcoming and patient and made her feel comfortable and successful.

Miriam V. is a great piano teacher. My 11 years old son takes lesson from her for almost two years now. She is very professional and good at what she does. She is very patient with my son. My son loves her. His piano skill has been improved a lot since she taught him.

I've been studying with Ms. Vessels for 21/2 yrs. now. My success has been amazing during this time.

We enjoy lessons so much. Our daughter looks forwards to them. And we hope to have her teach her baby brother when he is old enough.
