Summer Group Piano Lessons

I just spoke with the Community Music Center office staff.  I have a few openings remaining in my following labs for this summer.

A piano "lab" class is like a mini private lesson. Usually 2 or 3 students per class.  Each student has a headphone and a digital electric piano to practice on while they wait their turn with me.  We do a little bit of group activity, like playing for one another, but mostly it's one-on-one.  

I have openings in my Thursday 5:15 class,
Friday 4:15, 5:15 and 6:00 p.m. class. :) 

To register, please call the Community Music Center at 503.823.3177.

Summer Piano Lessons - Going Once, going twice....

....I don't want to say gone, summer has just barely begun! :)

Here are my remaining openings.  I like to be a little bit more laid back in the summer. So if you would like to take just a few lessons to learn a special piece, or if you regularly study classical music, note reading, theory and would like to branch off into the blues, improvisation and/or composition, now would be a good time! :)

Openings for Summer Piano Lessons!

Hello Piano People!

Summer is here!

I am hearing lots of happy children's voices as they finish up the last week.  They are cleaning out the swimming pool at the apartment complex here in Salem. I guess our friend Mr. Duck will have to find another pond to swim in!

Speaking of summer, many of my students are taking the summer off.  They have worked very hard and deserve a break!  Hopefully I wasn't driving them too hard!

But this does open up an opportunity for more students!  I have opened up some morning hours in my schedule for summer term which starts July 7.  I will be in town on Tue, Thu, Fri and Sat.

Additionally, I have two weeks in June that are open. I do not have set hours on those days, but would prefer Thu, Fri and Sat, June 18th, 19th and 20 and June 25, 26 and 27, or Mon, Tue, Wed, June 30, July 1 and July 2.

So if you would like to begin piano lessons, continue or if there is a special piece you'd like to learn or just demystify notereading, let me know!

Happy Summer!
