About this pro

I maintain a flexible, cheerful approach to teaching piano. I will help your child excel at their own pace. Some students are able to make rapid progress while others prefer to work at a slower pace. I am comfortable helping students with a variety of learning styles and levels of musical understanding. Students are encouraged to participate in our studio recital once a year as well as auditioning for the National Piano Guild if they wish. I love working with students of all ages, getting to know them one-on-one and understanding their abilities and needs. I encourage my students to play music they want to play and make a special effort to help each student find their own unique voice as a pianist. Parents are ALWAYS welcome to attend lessons and to ask questions about their child's progress.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      I ask parents to pay for piano lessons one month at a time. Typically that is $100 a month (4 lessons). If a conflict arises and a student cannot attend their weekly lesson I ask for 24 hours notice in advance. I will carry your payment forward to the next month.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      I always start new families/students off with some important paperwork about my policies and procedures, expectations for practicing, absences and payment. I will give a student a CD of short piano masterworks to listen to as well as a notebook to help them keep track of assignments. I am glad to order books for students but will expect to be reimbursed at the following lesson. At our initial lesson I like to ask a new student a few questions about their understanding of music, counting, how a piano operates, what music they currently listen to, in order to get to know them better and to share a little bit about myself.
    • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
      I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Performance from Florida State University. I have taught privately for 21 years and worked for five years as a private piano teacher (2010-2015) at an exclusive private school (Saint Mary's Hall) in San Antonio, Texas.
