Want to standout in your piano? Learn from a music teacher with decades of experience.
With 35 years of experience teaching all ages, I love seeing success in my students. I teach classical, jazz, pop, and Christian music. I am also a director of music at a church and I compose and arrange music as well. I continue to perform in local bands in addition to my church job, and with my extensive experience in education I am able to tailor lessons to each individual student based on their needs and goals. I make the lessons enjoyable, and I believe fully that everyone can learn to play the piano, which is a skill that you can use for a lifetime of fun!
