Fun, Relaxed, and Engaging Piano Lessons
My studio has a relaxed atmosphere. It makes learning easy and fun. I have been teaching for 30 years and have experience with beginners of all ages, and intermediate levels. My in person studio set up is a 30 minute lab and a 30 minute private lesson time each week. For online lessons, I have accounts with SupersonicsPlus, Piano Teaching Success, Carol Matz Interactive Piano and Piano Theory Program as well as other resources to make the online experience a multi-faceted approach. I plan individual lessons based on a students level, goals and what they need in a basic piano education. Other areas we cover in lessons include sight reading, lead sheets and accompaniment patterns, composition, and applied theory. I have a HUGE library of studio licensed materials including music, methods, and technique and for in person lessons, an additional library of hard copy music. In addition, I maintain a Virtual Studio that can be used for holidays and sick days.
About Valerie E.

I love music and appreciate all different genres. Lessons with me are full of creative activities and fun. I love seeing students 'get it' and know how to use that skill in the types of music they are playing. I enjoy getting to know my students; their interests, activities, families, and what they are involved in every day. Every day I set time aside for my own continuing education. I'm blown away with what technology allows me to do that I couldn't even five years. It's a tremendous asset to students learning piano today. I look forward to hearing from you and I hope you will join me on a surprising musical journey! Fun, Relaxed and Engaging

Teacher's Studio

Valerie has been instrumental in helping my children with their talent with the piano. As a mother, I was able to take lessons from her. She is patient, informative and willing to give music from favorite genres to play. I would recommend Valerie to any age wanting to learn to play the piano.
