Teaching philosophy: “Thank you for visiting my piano instruction page. I look forward to talking with you about our shared heart’s desire – music! Together, we will cultivate your musical mind. Serious music students of all ages are welcome!
Piano and Theory: Beginning, intermediate, advanced and returning piano students, self-taught musicians, amateur music directors, budding composers and arrangers, later-life music beginners, home school and private school groups – come one, come all. Experience everything you always wanted to know about playing the piano and making music at the keyboard, but weren’t sure how to ask! Individually-styled lessons let you begin or deepen your musical discovery. Drawing from Albergo, Abersold, Beale, Boyd, Faber, Glover, Hanon, Manus, Thomson and other recognized masters, I adapt the method to suit the individual student or the group. In addition, my teaching is influenced by the work of Jacques Dalcroze (Eurhythmics), Karl Orff, Zoltan Kodaly, and by The Royal Conservatory Music and ABRSM standards.

Teaching Philosophy: I am passionate about making music … and there is nothing more rewarding than making music with others! That’s why you’ll always find me accompanying my students to create a real-world musical experience in all of my lessons. Whether it’s a group class of three-year-olds or an adult beginner lesson, we will make music together starting on day one.
Music theory is often avoided by students because of its complexity, but I love to introduce these musical building blocks early and blend them into our play – to create versatile and well-rounded musicians! More about Fleck.
