learning piano can be....



It is never too late to realize your dream of learning to play the piano. And your kids? Well, they’re going to pass you by, quickly! With the right teacher, your kids will stay interested. And you, with good direction, will find it easy to reach the point where you enjoy playing.  Learning to play music is a joy at any age, and particularly good for adults because it takes the mind away from the pressures of everyday life -- a bit like meditation -- but much more fun!

Once you learn the basics like reading notes and rhythms, you will go on to play your choice of pop, jazz or classical pieces, each time building upon the knowledge learned from your previous piece.  It's so important to enjoy the experience, so I provide a variety of tools to enable you to hone rhythmic and chord-finding skills quickly while you're having a good time!

Before you know it, you'll be playing your first piece for your friends and family and on your way to realizing your next dream.  Remember, it's never too late to start!
