I offer private lessons to students of all ages, from 5 to 100!
Private lessons are intended for students who are dedicated to practicing a minimum of 30 minutes a day, 6 days a week, with parental help. Private students often take part in recitals, exams, and competitions.
Students enjoy playing a combination of classical and pop music, and are encouraged to play music that interests them. Music Theory, Ear Training, and Sight Reading are also an integral part of our lessons.
Lessons are $60/30 minutes, $90/45 minutes, or $120/60 minutes.
Group Piano Class
Make music and have fun together with 4-5 other students in a group setting!
Group piano class is intended for music-loving students with busy schedules. Practicing at home during the week is encouraged, but not required.
Students meet for one hour each week and have the opportunity to progress through their method books, scales, and solos as well as playing together on an ensemble piece.
A 60-minute group class is $50.

Students have the opportunity to perform throughout the school year at two studio recitals, multiple MTAC All-Level recitals, the Bach Festival Young Artists Showcase, and the MTAC Annual Scholarship Audition for cash prizes.
Certificate of Merit and ABRSM
I am on the Board of Directors for the Music Teachers' Association of California, Monterey, and have served as Branch Chair for the Certificate of Merit Evaluations. Students who would like to participate must be registered during the month of September. As of 2023, students can choose between in-person or online testing. For more information, please visit the MTAC website.
I also prepare students for ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music) exams. These are year round and can be taken when the student is ready. Exams can be done in-person or online. For more information, please visit the ABRSM website.
In order to cover all of the necessary material each week (Technique, Sight Reading, Repertoire, Theory, and Ear Training), students in Prep Level - Level 2 must have at least a 45-minute lesson; students in Level 3 and above must have a 60-minute lesson.
I'm a vendor with Ocean Grove Charter School, and I'm happy to work with homeschooling families to set up a PO for lessons.
Prospective students are encouraged to attend a trial lesson prior to committing to a block of lessons.
The Trial Lesson Fee is the same as a half-hour lesson ($60).
