My children have been taking piano lessons for years & were ready to quit. Michelle inspired them & had fun with them. My daughter said she learned more in 30 minutes with Michelle than she had all year with her past teacher. Both of my kids are now excited to practice and play again & that makes me so happy! Thank you!!!Jun 30, 2017Verified

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?We discuss your goals. After an initial assessment I recommend which lesson book(s) we will be working from, and why. After a short time of lessons I work as a team with each student helping them collect a “repertoire notebook” of music that they have a huge desire to learn. I find the music at the level the student is currently at and as they progress the music in it becomes more challenging. This “repertoire notebook” inspires students to study and practice more. I pace myself to each persons rate of learning. I explain music relative to each student , including music theory in every lesson. I answer all questions and assign homework and practice pages. Technique and theory are all balanced to insure a well rounded education and success.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have a degree in music. I have practiced daily since I was 7. I attend music symposium's, concerts and musicals. I play the piano and organ in church every Sunday. I accompany the church choir. I still continue to perform at least 5-6 times a year.
