I am excited for you to start in a new direction with music.
In order to ensure that you or your child gets the most effective and creative teaching possible; your lessons will be constructed with a simple to follow format. This will enable the student to follow through when practicing and be able to advance quickly.
I am all about developing a new generation of music-minded students who get to balance education with all the fun and awesomeness of being in a great jam session alone or with others.
I have an enthusiasm for music that is infectious. I teach with humor and analogies. I use all the experiences and techniques to implement a personalized program for my students. From beginner to master studies.
I believe the transfer of musical knowledge is a profound commitment that will help my students in the true enjoyment of their instrument and a hobby to last a lifetime. I can hear someone play and watch their fingers and prescribe the correct routine and pieces to help them progress quickly.

Ms Teresa is awesome! She has taught my daughter how to play both Piano and guitar. I love that she actually teaches the music and explains things not just how to play the song!

I started trying to teach myself piano until I met Ms. Arth. On the very FIRST lesson she pointed out some bad habits and quickly resolved them. This allowed me to reevaluate my technique and iron out the basics. I plan on continuing my studies with Ms.Arth and I highly recommend her for any student beginner or advanced. Totally 💯 satisfied!!!!

Teresa combines brain theory with music theory and musicianship. She adapts her lessons to the level of the student and works in a very positive and encouraging manner. Her style of teaching I think motivates the student to take risks and try to improve without fear of failure.
