My name is Stacey McDonald and I run a thriving piano studio out of my West Philadelphia/University City home. As a teacher, I specialize in teaching young children (age 3) through the teenage years. I have a particular strength for teaching beginners--making the learning process fun & inspiring, while getting students set on the right path for successful learning.
I am deeply committed to developing long-lasting relationships with students & parents. I want to see my students thrive, both as pianists and as world citizens.
Learning materials are chosen based on the individual needs and interests of each student. These materials cover concepts and exercises such as songs/pieces, music theory, technique, composition and ear training exercises. Supplemental materials are often provided to give extra help and instruction.
Lessons take place Monday-Friday in the afternoon & evening hours (2pm-7pm). Lessons are 30-minutes, 45-minutes, or 60-minutes in length depending on the students level.
All lessons take place at my studio at 48th & Chester Avenue in West Philly (easily accessible from the 13 Trolley, the 64 bus and the Media-Elwyn Regional Rail). I will not travel to students' homes.
