About Harmony of the Spheres Piano Instruction

Piano opens the door to the world of music, self expression and confidence. I welcome new students who wish to learn the art and technique of piano, piano theory, and the ability to play for others in a beautiful and dynamic private studio.

I offer individual weekly instruction, four performance opportunities during the year including an end-of-year recital in a small concert setting, and a wide variety of kinds of music to learn. I specialize in teaching the Taubman technique, a natural and extremely musical method that allows for ease of playing and expression.

Join our musical family in learning the skills that are proven to increase concentration, math, reading and language skills! I cover all levels and ages, including adults. I have students who have been coming for 5, 6, and 7 years and more, and they love the individual attention, the beautiful in home studio, speed of progress, and the way we have fun. Join us!

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Do an interview with the teacher and take a sample lesson. You and your child must like the instructor, as well as find the teaching environment beautiful and relaxing. You should feel that the teacher is confident about what he or she teaches yet is interested in the student's whole life as well. The teacher should be well versed in piano as well as music in general but also be a people person.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. Piano is a complex and beautiful instrument. Learning to play is a dance between heart, mind and body, coordinating how the arms, hands and fingers move with the written musical information with the feeling, fun and expression. Patience and delight are both needed, and the result invariably feels like a great accomplishment. In other words, piano needs commitment and practice, but it yields lifelong rewards.

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. Ask if they provide a "Getting to Know You" trial period before you commit to a full schedule.
Ask about the technique that they teach, and how long students generally stay with them.
Assume that a good piano teacher will expect you to have a piano for home practice, and expect at least a half hour a day of regular playing at home...more for advanced students.
Ask about recitals, workshops and performance opportunities outside of the studio should the student be interested.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. Piano is a "harp with hammers." Students learn to make a wonderful variety of sounds. An electronic keyboard is no substitute. Think out where you can fit a piano, and also, since there will need to be regular, quiet practice time, plan to put it in a space that is separate from other family activities. Also, since practice is needed, simplify the student's schedule to make sure piano receives the attention it needs.
