White River Junction, VT
Private piano teacher available to offer piano lessons to homeschooled students weekday mornings or early afternoons. I have taught piano for 11 years, and have experience with children and adults of all ages. My speciality is in teaching beginners through late intermediate. I believe that learning to play piano should be fun and interesting, and I try to tailor lessons to fit the interests of the students. I am creative, engaging, and encouraging– and believe that we all have the potential to make music! I choose music to capitalize on the students’ strengths while working on their weaknesses. I charge $22 per half hour lesson, and lessons take place at Frederick Johnson Pianos in White River Junction, VT–conveniently located just off of I-91.
