All ages and levels are welcome. Lessons are private and customized to fit each student's goals and abilities. I have a great enthusiasm for many different styles of music. My college degrees are in Classical piano. I also have experience performing and teaching blues and other pop styles. In addition to the basics (such as learning to read notes and rhythms) lessons may incorporate music theory, reading chord charts, and improvisation.
All lessons are private and customized to fit each student's needs and abilities. The emphasis is on playing material in which the student is most interested, along with technical studies and theory as deemed appropriate.

Lessons are contracted on a month-to-month basis. There is no enrollment fee and no long term commitment is required. For the most part, tuition remains the same every month. The student is guaranteed an average of 4 lessons per month. Consideration will be given for summer vacation, winter school break, spring break and medical emergencies.
