RCM Certified
I am a passionate teacher of Piano and Elementary School (Grades JK - 8), with over 30 years of experience. My wealth of experience helps me to approach each student as an individual and focus my teaching according to his/her strengths and needs. I am comfortable teaching students of all abilities and ages. My lessons include active, gross motor components and also the use of technology, when beneficial, in order to help engage my students. I also plan Piano Parties during which students can choose to attend and interact with each other while learning about various musical elements and composers through games and group activities. I believe in involving student, parent and teacher in goal setting discussions several times throughout the year. I welcome adult students and have taught many adults throughout the years. An eager learner is never to old to learn the Piano! Message me and we can chat about your particular music lesson plans.
