Frequently Asked Questions

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 5-6 years old when they begin). Basic reading is a preferred requirement, but not a necessary one.

Not at this time. Lessons are all scheduled Monday-Friday.

I do not travel teach. All lessons take place in my private home studio, located in Rathdrum, Idaho.

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.

Absolutely! I love sharing my extensive experience as a pianist of 25 years with advanced students, and I especially appreciate teaching high school-aged teens preparing to make music part of their college career.
