Overview:

Hi, my name is Caroline, and I began playing at the age of 3, formal training at age 5, studying with professional pianists all the way through college. I am classically trained, and studied classical piano as well as Jazz in college and beyond. I enjoy learning and teaching all types of music, including composition and improvisation. I offer my students 2 recitals every year, and I encourage any other opportunities to perform whenever possible. Music is both a personal journey, and a story we share with others.

EXPERIENCE

I began teaching at All About Music in 1998, where I one 3 awards including Teacher of the Year and Best Winter Recital. I use ear training and sight singing techniques that are internationally used for students ages 3 to 6. I taught group lessons for Brook Mays for all ages, including adult. I am well versed in many methods, and will help you choose which method, and therefore which result, you are ultimately looking for. I do not want to force music on my students, I want to encourage them to bring out the music that is already inside them, avoiding bad habits that hinder the natural flow.

METHODS USED

For beginning students between ages 3 and 6 I use Progressive Piano Method for the young beginner. Older beginners are given options based on their age, ability and goals. I have testing materials available for those who are interested. When I taught international students at Brook Mays, I learned many different techniques for young beginners. Most of my students start at around 3 or 4 and stay with me all the way through advanced Chopin, Tchaikovsky, Rachmaninoff, etc. I will always accept transfer students as, and I am willing to continue lessons in any method book you have already started, and when finished we can choose what type of music your focus will be on.

LESSON STYLE

I use two pianos minimum for my lessons, along with recordings at multiple speeds in order to minimize the rhythmic mistakes so common in private lessons. Students are taught to make the connection between what they are playing and hearing, and what others are playing and hearing. Composition and Improvisation play an important roll in this connection, which is why I make it a part of every lesson. Theory is also taught, and testing is available for those interested, but it is only an option. If you are not interested in that part of music, I will just sneak it in as necessary. Having had so much experience with so many apposing methods, I myself have learned that there are as many different types of learners as there are types of people, so it is best to let the student show you what works for them. I never have to push any students to practice because my method surrounds the students goals and abilities that they actually want to achieve. I myself, loved practicing as a child growing up, and so do my students. Piano practice in itself is a reward not a chore.

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.
