Philosophy

Students of any age will develop the necessary skills to become independent pianists allowing them to enjoy making music on the bench for a lifetime.

 

Music is an essential part of an individual's developmental and educational experience at any age.

Developing one's musical potential through a comprehensive piano curriculum instills discipline, confidence, musicianship and lifelong enjoyment of music.

 An enjoyable, challenging and satisfying learning environment is provided at each lesson to encourage students to develop reading, theory, writing, listening, and playing skills at the piano.

The joint efforts of teacher, student and parent(s) are a primary key to lesson preparation and progress on the bench.

Motivation, consistent lesson-attendance and well-defined practice strategies are a guarantee for success and independence at the piano for anyone at any age and any skill level.

Musical tastes vary and therefore music choices will be made primarily by the student with the teacher providing selections and guidance.
