I have experience with music theory all the way through college level harmony. My degree path at Berklee College of Music provided many tools to aid a working understanding of music theory and how it applies to composition and analysis of music. I enjoy helping children, teens, and adults find joy in understanding music theory, from the most basic foundation to intricate chord and rhythmic structure.

About Shari E.

I enjoy helping students of all skill levels reach their music goals! Each lesson is tailored to include a mix of fun and challenges. I aim to build a strong foundation of music theory and excellent technique that releases tension in the hands, arms, and body for optimal musical expression.

I began piano lessons at age 5 with my church-organist grandmother and studied with many other music instructors over the years. At 19, I won a Young Artists Competition, performing the first movement of Grieg's Piano Concerto in A Minor with the Southwest Florida Symphony. I also gained significant experience in choral music, church music, ensembles, and vocal music during my studies at Florida Southwestern College and Wheaton College in Illinois before earning a bachelor degree in Interdisciplinary Music Study from Berklee Online College of Music. My degree program included studies in blues and jazz, music business, arranging, and music production.

I look forward to helping make YOUR music journey enjoyable for a lifetime of musical enrichment!

I study classical piano and music theory with Ms. Ellis. She is very supportive and encouraging and personalizes lessons and instruction based on each student's skill level and goals. I learn pieces of music that I enjoy, and she provides suggestions and feedback to help me improve my technique, articulation, and rhythm. I think that I have made a lot of progress as a classical pianist through her instruction. Studying music theory with Ms. Ellis has also been very helpful to me, and I have learned a lot about the applications of music theory through the pieces that I am learning. I enjoy having Ms. Ellis as a piano teacher, and I highly recommend her.
