Meet the Teachers

We love what we do!

The basis of a good teacher is the love of the subject being taught. Our desire in teaching others to play the piano is not only to teach the student an instrument, but to instill a life-long love of music. We truly believe that learning to play the piano will open up an entire world of music to the student. By learning the piano, a student not only has a gift to enjoy for life, but is easily equipped to take on any other instrument as well.
