I believe that children stay with music lessons when they understand the building blocks to music and thus gain confidence in their ability to decode music. I teach this using various method books, games both on and off the piano bench, and especially through monthly group theory class.
I love multi-sensory teaching and enjoy working w/ many learning disabilities. I promote a nonstress environment for maximum possible retention. I hold 2 recitals each year. One is more formal and the other is outdoors and more laid back.
Along with private lessons, I teach private group preschool and kindergarten piano lessons, group monthly theory classes, and summer piano camp.
