  • Development of teaching materials, often including pieces composed specifically for your child
  • Training and experience
  • Recital Preparation and repertoire planning
  • Professional organization memberships
  • Continuing education


Missed Lessons

No refunds for missed lessons. I will offer TWO makeup lessons in a school year. Makeup lessons should be done within the month.

My Responsibilities
I will teach your child the language of music. l teach music with this single purpose: so my students will be able to give voice to that which they cannot say and for which they have no words. My studio has a positive and enthusiastic environment. I will tailor the curriculum to match your child’s specific learning needs.

Student & Family Responsibilities
Students agree to arrive at each lesson punctually, prepared, and with their assignment books and music. To make good progress, daily quality practice is necessary. Please ask questions.

Students are encouraged to have an acoustic piano or a keyboard at home.
