Piano Lessons

I have been teaching piano to students of all ages for over 35 years. 
My teaching style is flexible, relaxing, and geared to the learning style of the student. 

I emphasize learning how to read notes, counting, theory, and piano technique. I also teach improvisation
and composition to interested students.

A beginning student should feel confident in learning basic musical skills as the key to the enjoyment of learning piano.

My Teaching Approach

I am a low-key flexible teacher who enjoys working with the individual strengths of the student. 

I will teach a student at their pace and bring out their personal skills to best enjoy the lessons

Classical and Popular

It is very important for students to enjoy the music they are studying.  As the student advances, both popular songs and traditional classical are part of the lesson. 

My students enjoy well known pop tunes, Broadway favorites, and traditional lesson book  which help them progress. Students eventually may also choose to study only popular music

Improvisation

I teach blues piano, Jazz, and reading chords with a melody. I emphasize choosing familiar music which a student will find appealing.

I also teach beginning composition and encourage students to notate their musical ideas.

Music Theory

Understanding musical structure is essential to music literacy and greatly enhances the joy of learning piano. I teach basic theory, and analysis of both classical and popular compositions.

Education

I am a full time professional pianist. I studied at the Eastman School of Music and performed with the Boston Pops as a soloist un der the direction of Arthur Fielder and Harry Ellis Dickson.  In addition to teaching, I play Classical, Jazz, Show Tunes, and Contemporary Songs at weddings, corporate functions, and parties.

I look forward to hearing from you!
