A Modern Approach to Music Education

Providing a playful, modern approach to music education, where students play great-sounding music from their very first lessons!

Students are musicians from day one, learning in a positive, engaging, and encouraging environment. My goal is to provide music lessons that you and your child look forward to all week.

These are the piano lessons you wish you had when you were a kid!

adult piano lessons – learn piano at any age!

For busy adults, with my convenient online format, you can relax and learn to play the piano from the comfort of your own home, wherever you live. It’s easy… pour yourself a cup of coffee, tea or a glass of wine.  Relax and get comfortable at your piano. We’ll check in at the beginning of each lesson to chat about how your music is coming along and discuss any questions you may have. There’s no stress… I’ll have you playing beautiful, simple piano music from your very first lessons.

And I know life can be busy and you probably have many different demands on your time – work, family, travel, health issues, etc. – we’ll find the right learning pace and lesson format to meet your individual needs. I offer private lessons, shared, small group lessons, workshops, and classes. Please use the “contact me” form at the bottom of this page to let me know how I can help you.

piano lessons for tweens & teens

For tweens and teens who want to play great-sounding music right away, lessons are taught utilizing music that speaks to today’s kids in a format that will make them feel successful from day one.

I understand how busy today’s tweens and teens are – I have one myself!  You’re probably wondering if you can fit in another activity, but you also know how great it will be for your kid to know how to play music.  My convenient online format will help alleviate some of the stress of running around from activity to activity, and we’ll proceed at a pace that fits your child’s busy life.

Kids this age are developing their independence and individual tastes- their musical development and individual dreams and goals will be nurtured in our relaxed lesson environment, allowing your tween or teen to quickly become a competent and confident musician.

Piano lessons for kids

Is your younger child eager to begin playing music on the piano? With my guidance and coaching, your child will quickly develop into a confident and competent musician – they will proudly be playing songs for the family within their first weeks of lessons!

Parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles are always impressed with how quickly my students learn to play great-sounding music and I often receive referrals from family members and friends of current students.

With younger students, since what happens between lessons is so vitally important, I’ll also work closely with you, the parent (or other in-home caregiver), to help you become a supportive home coach for your child and help you set up a productive home learning environment, further helping to ensure your child’s musical success. There’s no need for you to have a musical background in order for your child to succeed in lessons! I’m here for you.
