Formula for Success: A Piano Teacher with Teaching Skills + A Strong Music Reading Program

 

My mission is to inspire in piano students a lifetime involvement with recreational piano playing. Piano teaching for me is not secondary to the establishment of a performance career.  I am entirely committed to teaching piano, not solely as a pianist, but as an educator, well-versed in the principles of teaching and the psychology of learning.

 

I am also committed to developing strong reading skills in my piano students. Without the ability to read well, a student struggles when learning new pieces and is often limited to a handful of rote-learned pieces played from memory. At college I conducted a public survey to determine why some piano students give up while others stick with it.  I discovered that failure to acquire good reading skills is the primary reason students get frustrated and quit after a year or two of lessons.
