Private Studio

I maintain a private studio of about 20 students, ranging in age from eight through amateur adult.  I teach through the fundamentals of classical technique with a strong emphasis on music theory and vocabulary.  I am a big supporter of each student forging their own musical path and am always happy to explore other genres including folk, pop, etc.


Lesson Package #1:   36 Lessons (school year)




Lesson Package #2:   18 Lessons


Lesson Package #3:   6 Lessons (a la carte)  **Does NOT include recital fees or participation.  Lessons can be scheduled up until Thursday, June 6, 2024, at which time, all unscheduled lessons will be forfeit.
