Learning to Play the Piano
I've spent time in so many different cities over the past few years; my students have a wide range of diversity. I've adapted to teaching a variety of styles of music, and arranged them specifically for piano, violin, guitar and voice.
Taryn of Taryn's Melodies has been teaching since she was 16 years old. She studied in Berklee College of Music while she continued to teach private lessons. She opened her studio when she graduated. She believes listening is an effective strategy in maintaining customer satisfaction.

Music should never become boring; it is a person's best form of communication. I have been blessed to never have lost a student to anything other than scheduling issues.
