This is my 10th year and my grandsons 8th year of piano instruction with Corrine Van Dyk. Corrine is an accomplished pianist with an obvious love of music and the ability to provide individualized instruction for students of all ages. The lessons are fun, motivating and provide specific techniques to improve each piece. Corrine provides choices in the selection of the music to be learned and opportunities for creativity. Students have several opportunity to perform each year and continually receive recognition for their accomplishments. Each May, each student makes a CD of the music learned during the year. Interwoven in the learning to play the piano with Corrine is instruction in musical theory, knowledge of composers and pianists from the Baroque era to the 21st century, and an understanding and appreciation of the stories and the emotions that each piece of music conveys.
