PIANO LESSON PAYMENT POLICY
I am also available for
piano purchase consultations
No, I don't sell pianos! But I can help you make the right choice for your situation.
The purchase of a piano is a complex and expensive proposition, but all too often, non-musicians leap into this major purchase without professional advice. Such informed guidance can be invaluable in preventing problems and disappointments in years to come.
I will be happy to help you, whether you are seeking a new or a used piano, and in many cases there is no charge for my services, which include a trip to the store or other location.
In addition to piano lessons,
I am available for instruction
in the following areas:
harmony - keyboard harmony
ear training - form & analysis
coaching of student chamber groups
