Whether for your child or yourself, learning to play the piano is a worthwhile investment that yields tremendous benefits. I focus on providing an individualized approach, customizing curriculum and materials to meet each student's needs. I care about my students beyond what they learn while sitting at the piano and strive to maintain an environment in which they can challenge themselves and feel free to make mistakes along the way. Lessons are implemented at developmentally appropriate levels, taking into account the innate skills each person brings to the piano.

Someone Reading Sheet Music


{ sessions scheduled as needed - group or individual }

Discover the magic behind the music! Music theory offers something for everyone. Musicians add depth and ease to their playing as they learn the "rules" and tricks hidden in plain sight in every piece they play. Listeners will further their appreciation for the various composers and styles they love. Anyone can get their brain thinking in a new way as they begin to write their own melodies and harmonies. Consider adding music theory to your studies or simply as something new to learn. You'll have fun and expand your brain while doing so.

Sheet Music Close Up

Reduced rates are available for all services offered. Music, like all beautiful things in life, should be accessible to all.

Ms. Kate is a really good piano teacher. She helps through songs and helps you review your songs to know them better. She is also super funny and makes sure that you are at your level and if you have a song you want to learn how to play she can help you find a version at your level and work on it until you have the song mastered.

"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before."
