Thanks for visiting my website. You have specific interests, goals and background that are unique to you. Because of this, once I hear from you, I can make recommendations that will help you develop and personalize your piano playing.​


Your lessons will be based on your goals & interests which can include any or all of the following:

  • Developing & improving music reading.

  • Improving hand independence.

  • Using effective fingering.  

  • Learning to use the pedal effectively.

  • Standards, jazz, show tunes and/or classical music.​

Requirements for Piano Lessons:

To get the best value from your piano lessons with me, I recommend that you have some musical background from one or more of these areas:
previous piano lessons, a few years of playing a band or orchestral instrument, experience of singing in a church choir or choral group for a year or more.

Musical Interests:
In addition to including technique, music reading, some music theory, and some classical literature (if you are interested), your lessons will include learning to play songs with accompaniments based on chords.

Students need to have a piano or digital piano (with weighted keys like a piano)

Requirements for Composition Lessons:

Musical Background- same as above

Piano/Keyboard-you can have a 61 note light touch keyboard if you don’t have anything else


Music Notation Software-It’s much better to have software that works on a computer vs. a tablet I use Sibelius, but there are less expensive programs available.
