Class and private instruction
The key element of lessons is to build a solid foundation in musical theory, note-reading, rhythm, expressiveness, playing technique and pedaling. In addition, it is important to learn the skill of practicing correctly. But as important are enjoyment & exploration, so training will range from Bach to Billy Joel, acoustic expressiveness to digital application.
Private lessons are scheduled weekly for 30/45/60 minutes pending availability. Please call or email for current days/times available.
