Do you love playing the piano? Elite piano lessons with an experienced pianist
I teach students who have no prior music training or who have taken a break from lessons and want to progress in their ability to play piano.
About Sharon W.

Learn to love playing the piano from the inside out--by understanding the fundamentals so you can create and recreate music for personal enjoyment and to share with others. Joining children, youth, and adults in developing your musical talents and gifts is my privilege. I teach beginner-intermediate piano students. I tailor the focus and styles of music to your needs and preferences and include training for success. I am a life-long musician with a music degree from Messiah University. I also direct the music and worship ministries for my congregation. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are 1/2 hour to 1 hour a week and include music theory, piano technique, and performance songs. Please make sure the student has ready access to a keyboard or piano and has a scheduled 20-30 minute practice time every day. Learning to play the piano well is a long-term commitment of several years. I strive for a positive, friendly atmosphere, with praise for incremental progress and encouragement for areas of improvement. Students use the Alfred series and other supplements, graded to the student's age, ability, and interests. *** Studio Equipment *** Home—my piano is studio in a large living room with spacious seating for parents. Note: We have a dog who can be contained in another part of the house or yard. *** Specialties *** I teach a well-rounded approach, combining technique, theory, and songs from various musical styles in a graded, graduated progression. Then I supplement with additional music according to the interests and advancing ability of the student to play the piano.

Helped me step up my playing I had been teaching myself piano for many years when I reached a point where I was not improving and realized I needed a teacher. Sharon helped me work on my weaknesses as a musician and had a good eye for pieces that helped me build on my strengths. We always had fun working together, and she was always good about working around my busy schedule.
