Marie's Piano Studio

Giving the gift of music to children is one of the most enjoyable experiences of my life!

The Pianos

I provide three different pianos in my studio: a Kawai baby grand and two Yamaha Clavinova digital pianos. The first instrument encourages students to listen to the nuance and emotion that can be heard on a quality acoustic piano. All the instruments provided encourage the development of proper technique. In addition to the baby grand, the two digital pianos help in daily lessons, and allow for fun engagement with the creative sounds and back tracks they provide. All instruments are properly maintained and tuned to ensure optimal function.

About Piano Lessons

My piano students enjoy my playful approach to learning. I have a clear long-term vision for my students and provide them with the step-by-step instruction that nurtures a feeling of success.

Balance is important to me. I blend traditional teaching with technology, I mix playfulness with practice, and I carefully balance my lessons to cover:

  • reading skill development
  • listening skills
  • composition and improvisation
  • chords and lead sheets
  • technique development
  • written theory homework
  • pieces in a variety of styles
