Overview

I have been teaching piano for over 18 years. I played piano and keyboards in a band for several years, and I have been playing piano and singing at church for over nine years. I can help you learn the proper technique and musical skills for any kind of playing in the future, with more advanced teaching for classical piano. I can also teach chord playing for students that want to quickly learn their favorite songs. I'll even help you learn how to sing along!

*** Lesson Details ***
I have a lot of fun at my lessons, but I emphasize the importance of practice. For beginning students, I like to use the Alfred's Basic Piano Library (that teaches piano playing and note reading), which I supplement with fun games, history projects and music journal topics to ensure my students get a well-rounded music education while enjoying what they are doing. I also host a yearly recital (which is also for online students) so my students will all get a chance to show off their skills! I create a custom curriculum for my more advanced students.

*** Equipment/Books ***
I will supply the curriculum for local students at their cost. I choose the curriculum for online students to order on the Internet. The student must have a suitable keyboard or piano.

I would like to talk with you about the type of lessons I am looking for before I book lessons online but I cannot find a way to contact you through this site without purchasing the lessons first. Please email me at smcardinal76@gmail.com and I can give you my number so that we can discuss. Thanks!!

Can you call me at 253 951 2925 to schedule the lessons. I would like to get a vibe first and this site won't let me contact you at all.
