Teaching since:
1980

I have played the piano since I was five years old. That's nearly 55 years! Even though I can play by ear, I was taught to read and interpret written music. I began teaching piano while in college in 1980, and at one time had as many as 30 students a week. That number tapered off some, especially during the years when I returned to teaching full time in elementary school. I have recently taken early retirement and am pursuing once again the opportunity of teaching piano lessons. I have many years experience in working with children. Even though I loved teaching school, music is my ultimate passion! I especially enjoy creating and improvising music. I have many years experience as an accompanist (weddings, funerals, voice lessons, and church). Not only do I enjoy teaching students how to play a piece of music, but also how to embellish and add to a piece to suit they're individual needs or preferences, along with various accompaniment styles.
