Introduction: I have taught piano for 40 years in a school setting as well as in a private setting. My primary focus is classical music. As a retired music educator, I have found a great deal of joy and satisfaction sharing what I love. I currently have several piano students who are flourishing. Because of my love of playing the piano and the experience with studying with various teachers, I have an empathetic approach to teaching piano. I am currently teaching online lessons. My students’ ages range from 7 - 52. We just had out second virtual recital. It was quite a success and the response was quite enthusiastic. If you are interested the requirement is that you have a piano—digital with weighted keys or an acoustic piano, internet connection and a laptop, tablet or desktop.

Lili L.

Mrs. Starks is is an AMAZING teacher. Her thoughtful approach to each student’s musical interests, abilities and goals is phenomena. I decided to learn piano in June 2020. I’m so happy I started my adult piano lesson with her , and I will continue my piano journey with her. I love how she tailors the music choices and approach to what each individual needs. She is so talented and patient. I also really appreciate her flexibility on the schedules. Since I’m working full-time, she accommodates my schedule when I’m busy at work. Highly recommend!

Amazing. This teacher got back to me FAST! She is the quintessential consummate teacher! She is so kind, too! Trust this teacher as she knows what she is doing. Walking the walk, for sure! She helped me understand that music are what feelings sound like! Get on her schedule if you can!

She is an excellent instructor! She has taught both my kids piano over several years and they love her. She is very patient, skilled and knowledgeable and has a way of inspiring them when learning a new piece or understanding a difficult music concept. She encourages them to work hard and to not give up. She also celebrates all her students twice a year with a Recital showing off all of their hardwork and dedication throughout the year.

I started taking lessons late in life - 50! Mrs. Starks is a very patient, knowledgeable teacher, who has a positive method of teaching! I would definitely recommend her.

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    My price is competitive and I will provide more time as required without adding to initial cost.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I try to get to know the student first. We talk about past musical experience, the interest for specific styles, what a student brings in terms of natural ability and we discuss goals.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I’ve studied piano from the age of 8. I had private teachers during my elementary through grad school years.
