Frequently Asked Questions
How young do you teach?
– My youngest students must be able to identify numbers and know the alphabet, and I do not take students unless they are ready to sit still and listen (as a result of these requirements, most students are around five years old when they begin). Basic reading is a preferred requirement, but not a necessary one.
Do you teach on weekends?
– At this time, all lessons are scheduled Monday-Friday.
Do you travel teach?
– I do not travel teach — all lessons take place in my private studio.
What method do you use?
– I use a variety of piano methods, depending on the needs of the student, until they’re of the age/level/ability to begin working on outside-the-method repertoire. My top two favorite methods are the ever-classic Faber’s Piano Adventures and the newer Alfred’s Premier Piano Course; followed by Alfred’s Basic Piano Library (an old standby!).
