Take lessons and learn the Gift of Music

I have an extensive background as a music instructor of piano, accordion, organ, keyboards and music theory, and some of my students have won awards in their divisions in national contests.  My first two years of college were at Manchester College in North Manchester, Indiana, and then I transferred to Ball State University where I graduated with a degree in Business Administration.  Before the internationally-known Baldwin Piano and Organ Company went out of business, I was their central-Indiana Director of Adult Education teaching "Play For Fun" classes, and I also had a full load of private students.  Now I am teaching all ages here in the suburban-Indianapolis area.  Go to the Contact page for phone and email information. Thanks for visiting!

Want to learn "pro" intros, endings, chords, etc.?

Since I have been a professional performer, I can help you learn how to use piano chords to "add" to your own music, and also how to use the Circle of Fifths in your intros and endings, buzzing through "riffs", and various things to increase your musical understanding, so it all flows even easier!

How cool is that, right?

Never had lessons - either child or adult?

Since I used to be an instructor for Baldwin Piano and Organ Company, and we used a special beginner's course to help students learn to play fast, I can show either children and/or adults how to learn to play a real song in the very first lesson, and keep learning from then on!

Want a traditional classical course of instruction?

I also use the standard courses of classical instruction to learn the lines and spaces, the traditional musical terms and definitions, and we use a metronome part of the time for expert timing.
