A piano teacher of 39 years' experience is now accepting new student enrollment.
The lessons would be in my home in Port Charlotte. I have extensive experience in many different avenues of piano performance, which include public performances, school choir accompaniment as well as soloist accompaniment, church music direction, and church band playing. I studied with a University of Missouri alumni teacher for 12 years and started my teaching under her guidance.
My greatest love of teaching is with the K to 12th graders. We all know that proficiency in anything in life takes hard work, but I find that making learning interesting and fun brings about the greatest results! If a student is presently studying in a certain method, I will continue at that point and very gradually switch over to my preferred method. I approach teaching in three very important areas: scales/chords, theory, and playing.
Lessons will start at 30 minutes each for younger children and may require up to 45-minute to 1-hour sessions with older students who are more advanced in their playing technique. Rates start at $25.00 per 30-minute session.
If you are interested in your child taking piano lessons, please contact me for further details. I'll be happy to answer any questions that you may have!
