The Piano Teacher: As a graduate of Northern Arizona Universtiy's wonderful music program, I've developed a deep love for sharing the benefits of performing arts through piano education. I began teaching in the east valley in 2011 and have truly enjoyed leading students to achieving their many different goals. To develop my teaching skills, I continue my own education by studying piano through Mesa Community College and attending various teacher workshops and conferences throughout the year. I also hold the 4th Vice President position in the Arizona State Music Teachers Association which allows me to help other piano teachers in the community.
The Studio: I welcome all ages to join my studio. My home studio is in Mesa near Higley and Southern. Lessons are either 45-minutes or 1-hour, depending on the level and age of the student.
The Program: At the beginning of each semester, we will review the students goals for piano study. In each students personalized study program, we cover piano repertoire, music theory, technique, music history, ear training, musicianship, composition, sight-reading and sight-singing, world music, and collaboration with other musicians/artists. In order to give students a greater understanding of how musicians contribute to society, I provide both traditional and innovative performance opportunities. This creates a positive space students to inspire others with their art.
What to Expect: I strive to provide a well-rounded, personalized, piano education program from beginning to intermediate levels. Because I am a Arizona State Music Teachers Association member, students can participate in various competitions, festivals and evaluations (like the Arizona Study Program). Students will find that through the lessons, they will not only improve their piano skills, but also see growth in self-confidence and commitment to reaching long-term goals.I look forward to having you join our piano family!
