I have been playing the piano for over forty years for churches and schools. I am passionate about helping beginner and intermediate students grow cognitively and socially through music. As a retired elementary school teacher, my strengths are assessing where a student is and creating a plan that suits each student to get where they would like to go. I see learning music as more than playing a song the correct way. Besides creating confidence and enjoyment, studying music greatly increases brain development and memory skills that stay with the child for life, and it forms the foundation of learning: seeing the structure that is in all of life, such as the structure in math, reading, and science. All children benefit from learning music, and those who pursue it will flourish cognitively, socially, emotionally, and spiritually. I would love the opportunity to help you learn the joy of music!
