I firmly believe that learning music teaches profound life skills. However, I commit to a broader goal as well – to help them learn how to learn. I show them how to handle frustration, and feel safe and free to accept criticism, direction, and create, all within the structure of each lesson. In short, it’s music for the whole person. I bring a long and varied history to each lesson, including jazz and classical music studies, performance experience, and composing for independent and commercial projects.
My program goes full circle in teaching not only reading the music notes but also skills in improvisation, composition and how to feel the beat. I specialize in the younger child. I believe this is the greatest time to develop that music talent we all have inside of us. My preschool program can begin a child as early as 3 years old. Don’t worry if your child is much older that this because I have had adults love my piano style. It is fun. It is energetic. It is the way learning was meant to be.
