About

<p> With a background of piano teaching and church music spanning 35 years, it has been my privilege to serve the Charlotte area as a piano teacher since 1980 when I completed my Master's in Piano Pedagogy (teaching).</p>
<p> <strong>Philosophy of Teaching</strong><br /> Teaching so students learn how to learn sums up the philosophy of my studio. When students complete their studies with me, they will have learned to read music fluently providing them with a lifelong skill. Musical and technical concepts are taught using <span>transferable principles</span> so the student learns to understand how to make any music beautiful! </p>
<p> <strong>Music &quot;Diet&quot;</strong><br /> I have written several piano books, a technique book and an assignment book which are in use in the studio. Students study a variety of styles year round including seasonal, pop and hymns around a core of classical literature. Everyone learns to play in all the keys, to harmonize and transpose in all the keys and do a little improvising using the books I have written.<br /> <br /> Every lesson also includes theory, scales and other technical components.</p>
<p> <strong>Complexion of Studio</strong><br /> My studio has a mixture of ages and stages. All of them love to play and find practicing rewarding because the assignments are specific and advancement in both reading and musical understanding is noticeable.</p>
