As a teacher with over twenty years of experience, I have been running my own piano studio full-time for the last decade. I started learning music in piano lessons when I was four-years-old and am currently teaching my 15th academic year as a piano teacher. I also am a former public school art teacher, university adjunct professor, swim instructor, dance teacher, and math tutor.

The Suzuki method is at the core of many of my ideas about teaching music. Shin’ichi Suzuki believed that music is like a language and therefore should be taught like one-- learning to speak before reading and writing and that learning should take place in a loving and supportive environment, with constant repetition, and with helpful modeling from the parents. Like Montessori, the Suzuki philosophy is student-centered, includes lots of learning games and enjoyable activities, and demands that learning activities be planned according to the student's needs and level of development.
Regular practice is an integral part of learning to play an instrument. Students will receive weekly homework based on the classwork, to be completed on a near-daily basis. For the young learners in this class, a practice of 5 to 10 minutes daily with lots of parental help is recommended.
A book is required for this class: WunderKeys Piano For Preschoolers: Book 3, 2nd Edition https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1542374898 Each learner should have access to a piano or music keyboard. Supplemental videos and recorded duets will be provided.
25 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents must stay off camera as much as possible but will need to assist as necessary during class time to help their young learner find the correct keys, clap along to the rhythm, and control the mute button in Zoom. Parents will also be expected to assist with at home practice throughout the week.
