My base curriculum includes a wide range of tactics from ear-training, sight-reading, music theory, and learning classical tunes or modern pop songs! Students we'll start with learning the base techniques: posture, hand position, and rhythm. I always incorporate games for beginners to reinforce the fundamentals they're learning. Once the techniques are established, we move on to learning how to read music and learning different pieces of repertoire.


I work with each student to find out how they learn and what their interests are to develop the best plan for them.

About Montana N.

I love teaching and spreading the joy of music, but it's all about the needs and goals of my students! I listen to them to understand how they learn best and what type of lesson will capture their interest.

I graduated from Longwood University (Go Lancers!) with a Bachelor's of Music in Performance and a Minor in Business Administration. I performed with Longwood's Wind Symphony for four years, participated in the pit orchestra for one of Longwood's musicals, and gave two solo recitals.

My primary instrument is clarinet and my secondary is piano. I've been playing piano for 9 years and teaching for three years with the Community Center for Music.
