Piano Lessons – Cranberry Twp PA
I know of many fine piano teachers in the Cranberry area, so, why choose Piano Lessons PLUS? GOOD QUESTION! I’ve been teaching piano since I was in high school. Even before my formal education in teaching and college degrees. It was just something I found I could do well and enjoy. In high school I was a member of Future Teachers of America. Then it was off to college to procure my formal musical education. I remember wanting to be a teacher from an early age. I get a charge out of observing a young person learn and exploring the treasures that is hidden within him. I enjoy teaching children of all abilities, not just the musically gifted. I feel every student is deserving of my best attention regardless of their ability.
However, I have had students perform as finalists in competitions sponsored by the American Music Scholarship Association and play in Carnegie Hall in New York City.
I’ve had articles published in leading journals dedicated to the piano teaching profession. Professionally, I’ve been involved in the National Guild of Piano Teachers, the Music Teachers National Association as well as the National Federation of Music Clubs. I’ve served in leadership positions in each of these organizations.
From the very beginning of my professional career I’ve taken a strong interest in the very young beginner; ages 4 – 6. So much so that I’ve developed my own piano method to teach these young student. I’ve written numerous books of various aspects of developing a young student’s piano skills. My teachers brought to me a strong appreciation in the value of folk songs and they feature a prominent role in my instruction.
I’ve also written numerous solo compositions that my students will often feature in local festivals as well as recitals. When you study at my studio you’re child is going to be under the instruction of someone who wants to teach. You will be studying with an experienced instructor who knows how to patiently advance a student and monitor their progress.
