Individual Private Weekly Lessons


  •  Students as young as 4 years of age may be accepted (we will set up an interview) Parents would have to be actively involved for children as young as 4 years old to succeed.

  •  Beginners(ages 4-7) through Advanced(up to high school seniors) are accepted.  This is a competitive studio, so students are expected to practice and be prepared for weekly lessons. 

  •  Private, one-on-one lessons for 30, 45, or 60 minutes each week (I determine length of lesson)

  •  Performance opportunities include a Fall and Spring recital, the Junior Festival, State and local Competitions, and Concerto Spring Recital for the advanced students complete with a chamber orchestra.  Duet, Duo and Chamber Ensemble Performances for the Intermediate to Advanced students

  •  Incentive charts and awards help motivate the students.  Students work to achieve a specific goal each week and, if achieved, get to mark their charts.  Monetary awards are given out at the recitals to those students.  In the summer, I have a musical store where the students earn musical bucks to spend in the store.  All these incentives excite the younger student and encourage practice which leads to musical success.  

  •  Competitive rates

  •  Flexible schedule to allow children who are home-schooled as well as those who have busy school schedules. Makeups are available for conflicts (please refer to studio policy).

  • Interviews must be scheduled so assessment can be made.  This acts as a first lesson, so student with previous training should prepare scales, etude and one piece. Student will be asked to sightread.  Student will learn how I approach lessons, and I will learn a little about the students' strengths and weaknesses.  This is at no charge to the student.
