About this pro
I have been teaching piano for over 23 years and have excellent references. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance from Florida State University. I recently moved to Albuquerque from San Antonio, Texas where I had a large music studio. I am currently accepting new students and have openings on both weekdays and weekends. Students ages 5 and up are welcome in my home-based music studio located near the intersection of Louisiana and Alameda in the the northeast heights of Albuquerque. Parents are welcome and encouraged to stay and listen to our lesson. I am happy to answer any questions that you may have about your students' weekly progress. Lessons are $30 for a half hour or $60 an hour and must be paid on a monthly basis. Typically, students ages 5-11 take a 30 minute lesson and those age 12 and older take an hour long lesson each week. My favorite piano method books are the Faber and Faber books. They cover a lot of groundwork in a well thought-out, logical manner. They flow easily from Primer level to level 5 which is more of an intermediate playing level. I also like to incorporate listening, music theory and proper piano technique with each lesson. Students are encouraged but not required to participate in an annual piano recital, usually given in the spring. I have also prepared many students for the National Piano Guild Auditions which is another performance / adjudication opportunity if your student would enjoy that experience. I offer one free introductory lesson to each new student so that we can meet each other, assess how well we fit and to get a better idea what your student knows and is comfortable with musically. I look forward to answering your questions and beginning a new musical relationship with you and your student!

- 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 $120 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 23 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.
