relaxed pianoI teach piano to beginners of all ages and adults bring a great deal of enthusiasm to the lessons, and perhaps a few fears. I do my best to create a positive environment and encourage a diverse selection of your preferred music.

Some of my adult students studied piano as a child; some have never taken a musical instrument at all. My oldest adult beginner was 82 years old, and soon gave yearly Christmas concerts of her favorite carols to her family.

“You are never too old to set another goal
or to dream a new dream.

BSO plays at the Tanglewood Music CenterSteinway & Sons, along with the Boston Symphony Orchestra hosted a lovely day at the BSO’s summer home in Lenox, MA (on August 18th, 2013). Piano Teacher Appreciation Day honored Boston area piano teachers on the grounds of the Tanglewood Music Festival.

A private guided tour of the grounds highlighted the evolution of the yearly music festival, followed by a catered lunch with our fellow Boston piano instructors. The concert featured one of the greatest concert pianists of our time, Emanuel Ax, after which we had a personal ‘meet and greet’ with the gracious artist.

IMG_1098How can parents avoid a “slave-driving” approach and yet be sure that the student gets to the piano every day? The parent who helps his/her child set up a regular daily time for practice will do much less nagging about it than the one who lets the child go to the piano whenever he/she chooses or whenever there isn’t something else more interesting or important to do. The parent may still need to remind the child that it’s “four o’clock and time for practice,” but it will become less and less of an ordeal as the habit becomes a reality.

   Whenever I have to choose between two evils, I always like the one I haven’t tried before.  –Mae West

Read how to also schedule a specific time for practice; focus first on problem spots and slow down the practice tempo; and speak or sing along with the music to help with timing.
