I offer weekly, in-home lessons as a travelling teacher. (No need to load up the kids in the van to go to lessons!) Lessons are year round, Monday through Friday, for ages 4 and up. School year lessons are from the first week in September through the last week of May. Summer lessons are through June, July and August.
Piano lessons include study in multiple areas: Piano Performance, Theory, Technique, Scales, Chords & Arpeggios, Sacred Music, Duets, and Music History. During lessons we will primarily study through the Bastien Piano Basics Curriculum and Bastien New Traditions Piano Method. (Pictures below) I teach the methods for Young Beginners, (ages 4-6), Piano Basics (ages 6-12), and Piano for Adults (ages 12 and up). Supplemental instruction will be provided through various resources.
Also offered are monthly group masterclasses which which take place in my home studio in Kent/Covington. These classes are designed to motivate students by creating a fun, encouraging environment to perform music together, play music and theory games, and learn about music history and composers with their fellow students.
We have three recitals every year, Christmas, Spring, and Summer, where the students will have the opportunity to share their music with family and friends. To help everything run smoothly and efficiently, our studio is run following an important set of standards and expectations, as detailed in the document linked below, which contains information on policies and rates. If you are interested in studying with me, please make sure to read it thoroughly.
