She has continued her love of teaching through the Classical Conversations Foundations program for the past 8 years, and will be directing the CC Challenge 3 program this year.
Group lessons are a great way to experience the instrument and decide if a student should move on to private lessons. Students get to improve social skills, share with one another, be competitive, and even be inspired from one another in this setting. Students will need their own keyboard (message us if you need help with this) and a book set. Music will be provided at first class and teacher will provide assistance with finding the correct book set (approximately $23 to start) if needed.
Receive private instruction at your level and needs. By taking private lessons your student will receive one on one instruction which is vital to quickly improving skill level. The teacher will be able to closely observe hand positions, fingerings, specific patterns, and learning style. The first lesson will assess what resources are needed.
