I have enjoyed teaching classical piano in Chapel Hill, using both Suzuki and traditional methods, since 2002. I welcome students of all levels (beginner to advanced) and all ages, including adults. Being the Suzuki parent of a violinist has inspired and informed my teaching immeasurably! (My son, now in conservatory, was 4 when he began lessons.) Music reading and theory are integral to my teaching and are reinforced through group classes. Recitals given in my home studio.
