I enjoy teaching piano to small children all the way to adults, including retirees who may wish to either learn for the first time or brush up on piano. I teach piano lessons on site so students can save time and learn and practice on their own instruments.

I believe that music is a natural extension of the fun of childhood. It benefits children in many areas of life such as memory, concentration, language, fine motor skills, setting goals, and coordination.

Although I had very qualified teachers in my early music career, music was a challenge for me early on. This means that I understand when students have a difficult time learning the piano. I am very patient and nurturing when I teach. I want to gently challenge students as well as give lots of encouragement and praise for a job well done. I would like to make piano lessons and music fun and interesting for my students.

I am currently available to teach a limited number of private on site piano lessons in SW Gainesville Florida, Jonesville, and Alachua.  Contact me for more information.  Your first piano lesson is free.  For more information about piano curriculum, please read my Curriculum page.  For more information about my background, please read my About Me page.  For more information about my lesson fees and policies, please read my Fees and Policies page.
