I have five years of teaching experience, as well as 13 years continuing personal study. Most of my experience has been teaching children ages 6-12, though I am happy to work with all ages. I teach out of my home on an Astin-Weight upright piano, but am willing to travel from Payson to Orem to teach in-home. Parents are welcome at lessons.
I prefer to teach beginning students with goals of playing hymns and intermediate-level pieces of choice (classical, popular music, Disney, etc).
I am 19 years old, and attending Utah Valley University as a piano major. As I continue my own education, my goal in teaching is to encourage creativity, foster good technique, and instill a lifelong love of music in my students, whether they continue in piano or not.
Teaching piano is important to me because I believe everyone should have an opportunity to have a positive experience in music.
"I think music in itself is healing. It's an explosive expression of humanity. It's something we are all touched by. No matter what culture we're from, everyone loves music." -Billy Joel
