*** Lesson Details ***
Music is a gift. My goal as a teacher is to share my knowledge of this gift with others, so that they too will have the ability to understand and enjoy the creation of music. Studying an instrument should be rewarding and I do my best to keep it a positive experience for my students. My method is versatile - custom fit for each individual who studies with me. It is my task as an educator to identify a student'€™s dominant learning style and use this information to engage him/her in the learning process. The overall agenda is set, as far as what I expect students to learn, but how I present the material differs from person to person. I am interested in making sure that the student not only comprehends the lessons, but feels a sense of pride in their accomplishments. Ultimately, my purpose is to help the pupil connect to the music, so that it may become a life-long relationship, whether he/she becomes a professional musician or a music enthusiast.

Veronica is everything you would look for in a piano teacher, talented, professional, and personable...my kids love her! She is patient, kind, and just a really cool woman. My kids enjoy their lessons with her. Veronica has instilled a sense of appreciation for the piano that I think they will take with them forever.

Better than I expected!

Veronica helped me to understand what I really can do while also giving constructive criticism. She also gave "homework" which helped immensely. I felt that my experience with her was worth every dime!!

Veronica is an amazing teacher! She has helped me understand music like no teacher has ever done for me. I notice such a difference in my voice and finally enjoy singing! She is professional, patient, and so much fun!

Really enjoying my lessons? Played piano as a kid and took it back as an adult as a hobby. Veronica really understands me. She is forgiving if I'm not all that practiced up. She's giving me a variety of music to enjoy and many tips that I've never learned as a youngster as to improve. Loving it! Thanks Veronica!

It's been awesome

Veronica is like all knowing when it comes to music. She's really good at teaching and sharing knowledge. Its a pleasure having her as an instructor. Myself and friends can see the growth in my vocal abilities, I can tell because they ask me where am I getting lessons from.
