  • Professional Certification and Continued Education

In order to keep up with my own performing and playing, I only teach Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. 

All lessons are one-on-one private lessons.  I necessarily alter my teaching approach for every student, and that creates lessons which are tailored to each individual student to meet their needs and preferences. At each weekly lesson, students will receive instruction, as well as written and practice assignments for the week. 

As the teacher, I offer two recitals per year, usually one in December and one in May. There is no extra cost to participate in these recitals, and for many students, it is the highlight of the school term! As a member of the Music Teachers National Association, there are many other opportunities for performing available to my students which I encourage participation in - but it is never required.

Please review the Studio Policies document for more information. 

"Amy is such a talented pianist, and we were thrilled to have her teach our girls. They have very different personalities, and Amy worked with both of them so well, keeping them engaged and taking them each to the next level in their piano lessons. Amy is the kind of musician who can play anything--classical, jazz, hymns, etc. When our oldest wanted to stretch herself and try out for jazz band, Amy's guidance was so valuable to help her break through to a different style and achieve her goal!"

“Ms. Amy is kind to people and lovely as a piano teacher can be. She is sweet as a whistling bird. I like her so much. She was my piano teacher. She cares about me.  She taught me to play and sing the Do Re Mi’s. She also taught me to play with two hands.  Now I am a good piano student.”
