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.
Homework Offered
Students will be expected to play their instrument to practice the song/s they write in class for 5-15 minutes daily (or every other day!), so they are familiar enough to play the song in class.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
 2 files available upon enrollment
Students will need to have their instrument with them as they log into Zoom. Please print out the worksheets provided or have your learner copy them by hand before class; this will help them write their song easier and faster during class time.
To fully participate in any music class, it's best to check your audio settings in Zoom first! Watch below to find out how to turn on ORIGINAL SOUND on your device:
