Welcome Parents and Students


Tuition $10 per 45 minute to 1 hr semi private lesson
I teach out of the piano adventure books, I have students memorize notes by practicing on an ipod and taking note tests that I made myself, I teach students how to ready music, learn scales and chords, music theory and how to play popular music using chords. Because my lessons are 45 minutes to 1 hour long students will have the opportunity to practice before they leave lessons. I teach out of my home near Northside School in Fallon NV. Payment is due at the beginning of the month or new session.

Fall Session
Winter Spring Session
Summer Session

I am holding a spot for your child each week and therefore will need to charge for the lesson even if your child does not come. However I do make up lessons. I am available by appointment most Saturdays and evenings.

I have noticed that weekly lessons for piano students (especially newer ones) have the best results. Skipping lessons may seem cheaper but when I don't see a student regularly I usually end up teaching a review lesson or teaching the same songs that I did in the previous lesson because they have forgotten and have not practiced. Therefore it isn't cheaper to skip lessons because your students most likely will not be progressing well.

I am currently not taking new students

I am teaching PE at Numa Elementary school for most of the school year so I am not taking any students for awhile.

I will have a small break the first week of June. I am not sure at this time when the charter school gets out for the summer but I thought it would be less confusing if I stop Spring Session the last day of May. I had the idea of doing summer piano lesson camps (kind of like swimming lessons where they came every day for a week or two for about 90 minutes.) That way they could learn a lot in a short amount of time and have part of the summer as a break. I would like to do a camp the beginning of the summer and one at the end of the summer as a refresher. Let me know what you think of this idea. I would still do traditional piano lesson in the summer if you were not interested in doing the camps.


Hopefully I have accounted for everything. I am not perfect but I learn from my mistakes. Thanks so much everyone.

Piano Recital was Wonderful!

I appreciate all of the hard work your children put in for the recital. Some of them really surprised, in a good way. I have developed a relationship with all of them and it brings me such joy to see them improve.

If anyone has any photos or video's they would like to share on my blog please email them to me. My Iphone battery died very early on that night so I don't have very many.

Christmas Recital is Almost here!!!

I am getting excited!! It is almost time for the Christmas recital on December 19th Thursday at 6:00 pm at the Churchill County High School Auditorium.  Most of my students are ready to go. A few of them need to practice really hard this last week. We are having an rehearsal on Tuesday the 17th at my house. Come between 3:30 and 5:00 pm when you can. It shouldn't take too long. I would like each student to play there song for the other students and then listen to at least 2 other songs before they leave.

Wear your best cloths for the recital and bring a refreshment if you can. After the recital we will be having a Christmas break from piano lessons for most of you until school starts in January. Have a Merry Christmas, I am so proud of everyone.

Piano Recital

The piano recital will be December 19th at 6:00 pm at the Churchill County High School Auditorium. Please bring a light refreshment to share. I would like everyone to stay and watch all the performances unless you have prior commitments. Also because it is a large room I want everyone to sit front and center so we are not scattered all over the auditorium.

Also please read the post about December lessons in red below this post.

FYI

For Public school kids. The openings for after school go to 4:15 so your child could ride the bus to Northside school and walk to my house and get here by 3:25 and still have a 45 minute piano lesson.
