My Passion...
  • Encouraging students to love and appreciate music.

    I  believe that the beginning years of piano study are among the most important times for establishing  a love for and a desire to learn music. This is usually when the student either develops a taste or distaste for music. With this in mind, I do my utmost to help my students enjoy studying piano while at the same time enabling them to progress as quickly as possible. I want my students to experience the joy of making music!

  • Developing in students musical skill and character.

    My goal is to have each of my students learn the keyboard fundamentals and become sensitive, artistic musicians. I also see the development of personal character as an important aspect of learning piano. Qualities such as faith, responsibility, confidence, and humility are what students will need throughout their lifetimes to help them succeed in whatever they do. Character presses them do the best they can not only in the area of music, but in every area of their lives!

  • Challenging students to use the skills they have acquired to bless those around them!

    Music is a wonderful gift from God! It is a language all of it's own that has the power of communicating what words cannot. I want to challenge each of my students to not just keep their music to themselves, but bless those around them! Music is one of the greatest gifts you can share with others!

    The highest aim for my music is to glorify my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!


We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit. ~ Aristotle

Curricula...

I teach piano to beginning through upper intermediate level students.  For my beginning students, I start them in a curriculum intended to help them move into classical playing as quickly as possible. My desire is to develop well rounded musicians by teaching classical music, sacred music, technique (scales, chords, & arpeggios), and theory.

In addition to association events, I offer a minimum of 2 studio recitals a year to provide students with an opportunity to share their music with others and develop their performance skills.

I do most of the music shopping and provide detailed report cards to chart student's progress.

If you would like to set up a free student audition or discuss the possibility of lessons, feel free to contact me!
