“I know how to play the piano well and how to teach others to do it.
I look forward to teaching each day, because it’s enjoyable. Enjoyment and enthusiasm is contagious and is transferred to students.
I emphasize Music Theory, Sight Reading, Techniques & Finger skills, Ear training and Music appreciation.
I get the true best from my students & find a way to help the student discover that he/she is more capable and talented than he/she realized.
I think personally about each member in my studio and feel committed to finding and developing each student’s abilities, talents, and passions.
I am committed to the success of each student. I believe that every student is musical, and the teacher’s job is to unlock that potential. This requires teaching to each student’s learning style (visual, auditory, or kinesthetic), tailoring each lesson to fit the student’s age and personality, and use of analogies (relating concepts to the student’s personal interests).”
The next recital is on Saturday, April 22 at 10 AM and will be held at Redeemer Lutheran Church (2525 Belle Terrace). Everybody is welcome! Talented kids are preparing a great concert. Come and enjoy the performances!
