Current Openings for Piano Lessons

Thank you for your interest in piano lessons!

For group lessons, I’ve found it best when students come to me with their groups already formed (two or more friends interested in beginning piano lessons together, siblings of similar age and ability, or a parent and a child).  However, I’m open to creating groups as they come along.  If you’re interested in group lessons, but you don’t have a partner in mind, feel free to contact me and I’ll put you on my waiting list for a compatible group.

If you’re interested in private lessons for yourself or for your child, please send me an e-mail or give me a call.

FAQ:

  • Adults/Seniors:  The Simply Music Piano method is just as wonderful for adults of all ages as it is for children and teens!
  • Children, ages 4-6:  Yes, I work with preschoolers and kindergarteners!  I strongly recommend beginning with the Play-a-Story program (which I teach).  The program progresses beautifully into Simply Music lessons.
  • Homeschooling Families:  I’m an approved vendor with both Connecting Waters and Visions.  I have morning and early afternoon openings available.
  • Are students taught how to read music?  Yes!

I’m looking for an electronic keyboard for practicing piano at home. What should I buy?

Here are the recommendations from the Simply Music “Being a Simply Music Piano Student” brochure…

“You will need to have access to an instrument.  When choosing a piano or keyboard, budget is often an important factor.  Almost all acoustic pianos have 88 keys, and have all of the preferred benefits and features.  A local piano technician or piano tuner can provide valuable advice when you’re considering purchasing a second-hand instrument.

When choosing an electronic keyboard, there are certain features to look for.  The more features, the higher the cost.  Use the following guidelines (in order of importance):

  • minimum of 61 regular-sized keys
  • if affordable, an 88-key digital piano or keyboard would be ideal
  • a sustain pedal (not a sustain button)
  • touch sensitive keys
  • weighted keys

Obviously there are numerous other features, many of which come as standard on many modern instruments.  These, while potentially interesting and/or beneficial, are not a necessary part of a successful Simply Music experience.”

If anyone has experience with a specific electronic keyboard (make and model) that meets these guidelines, and you love it, please comment below!
