I have been playing the piano for 14 years. I love musical composition and have written ~40 + Christian songs. Since I love musical composition, naturally I also love music theory-something that has helped me to expand my "musical toolkit" of ideas. I am able to compose in several genres. Most of my music would probably fall most closely under the "Folk" label, but I have also written some pieces that are more classical in sound. I have considered writing some music in the country and southern gospel genres as well. All of the music I compose is Christian music (except for when I create strictly instrumental compositions). I read music pretty fluidly and I love studying written music. I think that music is so orderly, dependable, versatile and fascinating. I have personally found that music theory has helped me to read music faster and with greater ease. It has also enhanced my ability to make my compositions more complex and interesting. If you are a dedicated and determined student, and if I seem like a good fit for you, I welcome you to book a lesson with me. :)
Teaching since 2020

Teaches ages 8+
Has background check
My children are 11 and 8 and they are just starting the grow their piano wings. Naomi has been so patient, flexible, and very encouraging. She provides support for learning more challenging skills and aids them in finding and correcting the mistakes themselves. I really like this because I can see that they are starting to grasp the ideas and theory concepts. With each step, skip, or "repeat," I don't think we'll miss "a beat." Thanks so much Naomi for helping us on our musical journey....;O)
I have really enjoyed taking piano playing lessons with Naomi. Working with her, I am learning to practice and play from written music and even surprising myself along the way. Still, I feel the best is to come!
I started working with Naomi just a few months ago and I already feel that she is one of the most inspiring teachers that I have ever had. She has a real joy for music and is an enthusiastic instructor. She has really taken the time to 'go into the weeds' with me and patiently answers all of my questions about music theory. I had tried other teachers in the past, but Naomi is careful to keep the content in step with my learning pace. I have really appreciated her instruction.
