Beginning Piano Lessons

(1st Grade and Older)

Piano lessons are scheduled weekly throughout the school year. Optional summer lessons are on a flexible schedule.

Students receive customized piano instruction, which includes note reading, technique, theory, ear training, and repertoire. Additional instruction in music history and music appreciation is available upon request (for an additional fee) on a weekly or monthly basis.

I choose curriculum based on your child’s age, ability, and interest. Here are the curriculums I use most often:


Does my child need a piano or keyboard at home? Yes, in order to make progress in piano lessons, a child does need a home piano or keyboard. I understand that purchasing an instrument is a big commitment, and I am happy to help you make decisions on what kind of piano or keyboard to purchase. I am happy to do lessons without a home instrument for up to two months, but after that, a home instrument is crucial for practice and progress.

Are there performance opportunities? Yes! Depending on how many students I currently have I will either hold an annual recital at a local venue or host an online recital. Recitals are optional, but encouraged.

Do your students participate in piano exams (ABRSM, RC)? No, my focus is teaching students who are not looking to participate in piano exams or competitions. My goal is to foster a love of music in young students and to give them a general piano foundation. My background and experience are not a good fit for students seeking to be competitive or elite musicians.
