BS, Illinois State University, Special Education BA, Lincoln Christian College, Christian Education Licensed Simply Music Piano Teacher
I passionately believe that everyone is musical! As a piano teacher, I began to see that many potential students were missing out on the opportunity to learn how to play because of the approach used with traditional piano lessons. I wanted to combine my experience as a Special Education teacher with my love for music and playing the piano. After discovering the revolutionary teaching method, SImply Music, I began teaching students with special needs with tremendous success. My studio, Cottage Keys, operates under the singular goal of helping students of all ages and abilities to "unlock the music within them" and maintain music as a lifelong companion!
I have been playing the piano since the age of 7. I have been teaching part time throughout the last 30 years. I opened my own small studio in 2011 after becoming a licensed Simply Music teacher. My studio has grown to over 40 students! I love teaching and tailoring my approach to each individual student.
I am a licensed Simply Music teacher. Simply Music is an Australian developed, revolutionary, playing based teaching method. It is ideal for students of any age and ability. Currently, I am desiring to welcome more students with special needs into my studio.
My goal is for students to aquire and maintain music as a lifelong companion! The Simply Music method gets students playing songs from a variety of genres right from their very first lesson! It's an inspiring, motivating way to learn how to play the piano- and learn how to express yourself through improvisation and composition. I make lessons fun, engaging, and non-stressful! As an experinced Special Education teacher, I am passionate about teaching students with special needs to bring the music within them to life!
Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.Ok
