For the foreseeable future I am only teaching lessons over the internet. All of my former face to face students say it is the same as face to face lessons and I think so too. I use FaceTime or Skype for lessons. I have openings so get in touch with me to get started.
Learning to play the piano, no matter your age, has benefits that go well beyond the enjoyment that comes from being able to play. Now’s the time to take the plunge and learn. Yes, you do have time. I teach lessons over the internet as well as locally so finding a schedule that works for you is no problem.
Have you been trying to learn to play the piano on your own and realized it just doesn’t work? If nothing else, an experienced teacher can give you feedback to make sure you are learning to play the piano in the easiest and most efficient way! A book cannot do that. YouTube videos cannot do that. In my experience, few people are able to correctly learn to play the piano on their own. You need an experienced teacher.

Did you know?…
An article in The Scientific American, July 2003 stated that children with training in music have better verbal skills than those who do not. The article suggested that students with better verbal memory probably will find it easier to learn in school. Also noted is that the longer one studies music, the more the verbal skills improve.
A study done by the National Association of Psychiatrists and Psychologists (NAPP) indicates that having hobbies such as … music decreases the chance that one will be referred to a mental health practitioner by 24 percent.
Piano lessons are offered for ALL ages and ALL experience levels. As long as your child can read their lesson book, they are old enough to start. (Usually 1st grade). All styles of music are taught and supplementary instruction in theory, composing/arranging, lead sheets, accompanying and more are also available. My teaching schedule is great for homeschooling students too.
Whether you want to help your child have an advantage in life or if you are an adult who never learned or you’re someone who wants to start lessons again, NOW is the time to start. Don’t put it off any longer. You are never too old to start
