Discover the power & beauty of music, develop skills for excellence, discipline the mind for life. Quality private piano and music theory instruction for students of all ages and levels. Nationally Certified Teacher of Music, MM Piano Pedagogy. Enthusiastic, dedicated, experienced, and credentialed teacher. It is a privilege to be able to present my background, philosophies, and procedures to you. I hope that you’ll find this information helpful as you make your decision to join the studio. First and foremost is the learning partnership created between the student and teacher, supported by the family at home. Together we will set musical goals for the year and develop a plan to reach those goals. As we work together at the piano to discover the beauty and power of music, we’ll be learning how to practice and develop the skills needed for musical success. Your commitment to regular practicing will be a critical part of your study. As we know, learning to play the piano well is not a short term project. It is this discipline over time that will give you results that you hope for! Students are scheduled for individual weekly lessons (length generally determined by advancement) during the school year. Performance and evaluation opportunities are selected together at the beginning of the academic year. Some of the programs involve only the studio, while others are local or state-wide events. During the summer months, a variety of programs are offered from which you may select. It’s a good idea to keep some music going over the long summer break. . .it’s fun, it’s indoors (great for AZ heat) and it keeps your skills up! Adult students are given special consideration within the studio, working with Sherry to set and meet personal musical goals at the piano. Flexible scheduling is available to suit various schedules.
