5. Overman School of Music
"I teach in the students' homes, and do all the shopping for books so that there is no stress for the parent. Students accelerate in their learning much more quickly than in most piano programs several factors such as being in the comfort of their own home and playing on the piano they have practiced on during the week, and the specific program designed for each student, which is tailored to their style of learning. Since I have been teaching for 26 years, I have many excellent area references. I teach all levels and all ages. I am flexible in my scheduling, so if a student is ill or has a conflict, I can usually find a make-up time the same week. I am always on time, and my students have fun working with me. I teach year-round so summer lessons are mandatory, and necessary family vacation times are credited. I love the balance of focused learning and the enjoyment that both the student and I derive from the progress. We use videotape at intervals for repertoire pieces which makes it very fun to see the progress at different time intervals. (Please understand that I do not put any videos of children on the internet. I believe that this could be dangerous. If you are interested in my teaching, my present student's parents would be happy to talk with you.)"
