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.
* I am no longer accepting new in-person students for the 2019-2020 school year.
Please contact me for teacher recommendations.
My current rate is $80 per month per student with a $5 sibling discount. Lessons are held on a weekly basis with make-up lessons offered one Saturday per month. All in-person lessons take place at my home studio in Commerce Township, Michigan.

Thanks for stopping by!
I am a piano teacher, music coach, and accompanist who works with people of all ages to
help them discover the benefits playing, performing, and yes, even practicing, can have in our lives.
Having started my own musical journey at the age of 5, I understand the good, bad, and ugly of learning and playing an instrument at any stage of life. Being the mother of four, with one on the autism spectrum, I welcome students and soloists of all abilities and personalities, and strive to create an atmosphere of trust and fun.
I can't wait to hear from you and begin making magical, musical moments together!
