Private Piano & Keyboard Instruction in Charleston, SC


My teaching philosophy is to stimulate the student by creating a positive learning environment where the student feels capable and not intimidated. I consider myself to be a piano coach, not a piano drill sergeant. In
my lessons, I stress the development of good habits and understanding the music. I want to see that each student improves and can see this improvement.


I am an active member of MTNA (Music Teachers National Association), SCMTA (South Carolina Music Teachers Association) and CMTA (Charleston Music Teachers Association). Being a member of these organizations benefits my students by allowing them to participate in various auditions, recitals, and competitions affiliated with the associations.


I schedule Fall and Spring recitals to give my students an opportunity to perform and see others perform. Participation will be voluntary, though I do encourage performing because the experience of sharing music with others is positive and rewarding.


Lessons available for students as young as 5 through 18 – beginner through advanced levels.
