I’m not only teaching your child. I’m teaching you how to ensure they develop a love of music at a young age, and cultivate that love of music throughout their lives, gaining music literacy and piano skills along the way. Once we find each other and decide it’s a match, I’m the kind of piano teacher that becomes a part of your life and you a part of mine. I am in it for the long haul with my students and their parents, using a research-based piano curriculum designed to optimize learning at every age and level. I believe deeply in this method, not only because it has worked for my students, but because it has made me, and continues to make me, a better musician. I can’t say that about any other piano method I have tried.
A lifetime of music literacy and fulfillment.
Do you envision a lifetime of music education, at and away from the piano, for your child? One that evolves and grows with your child along with the way their brains and bodies naturally develop?
Are you willing to actively engage in the musical development of your child when they are young and continue to support their music learning journey as they grow?
The fruits of our musical efforts are not always apparent right away. Are you willing to trust me and the music learning sequence that yields literate and fulfilled musicians, but also takes time and patience?
Music is best learned the way language is learned.
Children learn best when they learn music in a similar way that they learn their native language, that is to develop listening, speaking, thinking, reading, and writing vocabularies in that specific order.
Following a meticulously crafted learning sequence and a piano method based on Music Learning Theory, we can ensure your child will grow to reach their full music potential.
We are in this together.
I, the piano teacher, am in charge of the quality of the lessons, following the music learning sequence, and educating you on the ideal musical timeline that your child will follow.
You, the adult, are in charge of trusting me and acculturating your child at home with plenty of listening time and playful piano activities until they are ready to begin more formal music instruction and become independent practicers.
I will be with you every step of the way on this musical journey.
The only method based on Music Learning Theory.
Music Moves for Piano is an audiation (musical thinking) approach and is like no other piano method in existence. It teaches genuine musical understanding and taps into human creativity from a young age.
Music Moves for Piano also provides the foundation for more advanced piano skills later in life. The Keyboard Games series is most appropriate for children ages 4-6 and provides readiness for the Student Book series when students are ready for more formal instruction.
