    Introduction
    Teacher of Piano for the past 19 years. My love of piano and children is why I started teaching. I have a passion for teaching and pass that passion of piano on to each and everyone of my students. My studio is in my home in White Lake. I started teaching after watching my 5yr old (16 yrs ago) struggle with a very impatient teacher and realized I could teach children and not make them cry.I put my two loves together, kids and piano and started my own business. I love teaching adults as well as kids. If you want to give your child or yourself the GIFT of piano, please give me a call @248-698-3339

    My Teaching Background
    I received my B.S in Communication from Eastern Michigan University in 2005, and my Associates Degree in Mental Health from Oakland Community Collage in 2003. I love teaching beginners through advanced players. I am a member of the Michigan Music Federation and have been putting my students through the Federation for the past 17 years. I have yearly recitals for all my students to perform and all family members can come and enjoy listening.

    My Teaching Philosophy
    I approach teaching with love and patience. Although my degree is not in music, my students learn how to read and play and just have fun while also becoming serious about their studies. I believe that as long as you love the piano, you can learn how to play. Teaching piano is all about patience and understanding that each student is an individual. All of us learn at a different rate. If I feel a student really doesn't want to be taking lessons I will let the parents know. Open communication is very important to me. I will not teach if the student really doesn't want to learn. As long as a student wants to learn and I see they are passionate about learning, we will be a great fit. All of my students are very special to me and many of my students have been with me for over 8-9 yrs. Many continue until they graduate from high school. Piano is a gift to learn and I love giving that gift to my students.
    On average I teach 25-30 students a week. Lessons are given everyday except Friday's and Sunday's , Saturday is my travel day for lessons.

    I teach in my home and charge 25.00 dollars for a half hour lessons. Saturday lessons at your home are 35.00 per lesson. All lessons are paid for on a monthly basis.
