Areas of Instruction
I am an energetic, passionate piano teacher with a love for musical creativity!
In my teen years, I started my own piano studio. As the number of students grew, I quickly discovered that teaching piano is my calling! I attended Lindenwood University toward a degree in Music Education, where I was the piano accompanist for the University Chorus and several other larger-scale musicals. After 10 years of teaching experience and 7+ years of performance experience, I have grown to love creating individual methods of learning, specifically tailored to the learning style of each student.
I believe in creating a safe and enthusiastic environment for my students to explore their musical style. They are encouraged to play many different genres of music. I usually take a well-rounded approach that includes all kinds of classical repertoire, as well as popular songs you love. I also focus on cultivating sight-reading skills as well, to ensure that music can be a lifelong passion!
When I'm not teaching, I enjoy time spent with my husband and toddler, creating new recipes, and my job as a full-time church pianist.
