Lesson Approach

Whether you are seeking ongoing traditional lessons or something more project- or subject-based, I am excited to guide you to success in achieving your goals.

Ongoing Traditional Lessons

Traditional Lessons are available for students who are learning to read music and those who are continuing their piano education.

  • From 4 years old to adult - beginner through intermediate and advanced. I teach students ranging in experience anywhere from just learning about rhythm and reading music up through those working on more advanced pieces, such as Debussy's Suite Bergamasque (my favorite is Clair de Lune!).
  • Lessons are typically 30 or 60 minutes in length.
  • Weekly 30-minute lessons are recommended. This frequency will keep the student engaged and on task for practicing at home, and it will ensure sure your assignments don't get boring or worn out by the next lesson.
    • Longer lessons bi-weekly/every other week are also an option if weekly lessons are not possible.


Project or Subject-based Lessons

Subject-based lessons are also available to both one-time and on-going students.

  • Songwriting. Learn the basics of songwriting - chord progressions, how to read/write chords, lead sheets and charts.
  • Special performances. Playing a piece for a special occasion and need guidance? I will coach you through the tough spots and help you improve your overall performance.
  • Social music events. Want to learn what it takes to get out and play at a jam? Would like to learn some songs to play at the family holiday party? I can teach you how to read charts and get you playing more songs than you realized you could!

Lesson Location

Your lessons can be scheduled in my home or yours - your choice!

Home Studio

  • Located in North Phoenix. My home studio is near the I-17 and the Loop 101; 43rd Ave and Union Hills.

  • Leave or stay during the lesson - your choice! If you choose to stay, you may wait in either the same room or in the other room around the corner. I have plenty of comfortable seating to accommodate the needs and security of you and the student.

    Comfortable chairs for parents who choose to stay in the room. There is also seating in the room with the baby grand.

Your Home

  • I travel to you. What is more convenient than lessons in your own home? Instead of travelling to me, spend your time on your own projects or keep the kids doing homework until lesson time.*
  • Yamaha MOX8. If you do not have a piano or weighted keyboard, I will bring my weighted Yamaha MOX8 for lessons in your home.
