    Good communication, considerate set-up lesson hours. Background and professional attitude, and the way of teaching for different level of students are impressive. Would recommend with thumbs up.

About this pro

My students display repeated success in local events and show a continued love of music long after graduation and pursuit of other career paths. My students who have decided to pursue music as a career have consistently exhibited excellent preparation for auditions and have been accepted to quality music schools and conservatories throughout the country, resulting in successful and satisfying careers in music. Seeing the joy on a young person's face the first time he or she plays on a recital and hears applause for a job well done!

      Monthly tuition for the 9-month academic year, September through May, is as follows. Tuition includes weekly lessons, 4-5 masterclasses, and two recitals. 30 minute lesson (elementary), $125month 45-minute lesson (intermediate), $185/month 60-minute lesson (advanced), $245/month Summer lessons (June-August) are scheduled individually and calculated at the hourly rate of $65.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have the terminal degree in my field, the Doctor of Musical Arts degree, from CCM, and a Master of Music degree from the Kansas City (Missouri) Conservatory. I am an active performer and chamber musician, and am on the piano faculty at CCM in the Preparatory Department. I taught for 2 years at Miami University in Oxford, OH, was the Coordinator of the Piano Department at Earlham College in Richmond, IN, 2006-2013, and taught Music Theory at Northern Kentucky University. I have been teaching piano since 1984. A new music specialist, I lecture on modern piano literature and technique as well as women in music, and am always on the lookout for a brand new masterpiece to premiere!
    • What types of customers have you worked with?
      I teach all age groups, including adults. Serious students are encouraged to enroll in The Royal Conservatory Music Development Program performance assessment syllabus. 4-5 Masterclasses and 2 Recitals are scheduled within the 9-month academic year. Additional Ohio Music Teachers Association (OMTA) events as well as other competitions are encouraged. Adults have 2-3 performance classes annually. Summer lessons are scheduled individually. I also specialize in preparing students for college and graduate school auditions. Busy adults may enroll in lessons in alternate weeks if time allows. I am the Director of the Tri-State Piano Concerto Competition whose winners perform with string quartet, and the Chair of the MTNA Composition Competition for the State of Ohio. Students must own an instrument on which to practice daily.
    Coverage Area for Rookwood Piano Studio is about 30+ miles of Cincinnati, OH.
