    About MeContact Me
    Introduction
    I am a friendly, qualified, fun teacher with a great sense of humor and over 18 years experience offering 30, 45 or 60 minute lessons per week, my home studio or your home!

    My Teaching Background
    Growing up with an opera singer, you could say that music is in my veins! It's just a natural part of me and its my passion.
    My "formal" training began at 4 and I have studied with a long line of exceptional teachers. I have won many awards, went through certificate of merit as a young student and have performed for years in a variety of establishments.
    Half way through my college career, we found out our son had autism, and through that journey, I have found that I have a special intuitive gift for teaching kids on the autism spectrum and also kids with special needs.
    A parent of one of my "special" students recently said that she was "lucky to have found" me! Apparently, because of my hard advocacy and training in autism with my own son, I just naturally extend that to my students! It's just who I am!
    I also have the most stress free, fun, exciting piano recitals around!
    Contact me today for a free, no obligation "meet & greet"! I look forward to meeting you!

    My Teaching Philosophy
    My philosophy is that each student is a unique individual and I customize each lesson tailored to them.
    Also, it's important that they have a piano to practice on. I write out a clear cut weekly lesson plan which they can follow daily. Piano lessons can be challenging, at times, because new habits (daily practice) are being established, but the rewards will last a lifetime. What the student puts into their practice time and how well they listen at lessons will determine how fast they progress. I make it fun, so the time flies by fast! Call today!

    Rates And Availability
    I have recently decided to grow my business from part time to full time, so I teach every day except Sunday, morning (perfect for homeschoolers, college students and adults!), afternoon (school age kids prefer this block of time, so afternoon into evening time slots book fast!) and end lessons by 6:30pm
