My first piano teacher taught me the basics of music theory and technique, but more importantly, she taught me to believe in myself.

Lesson fees are based on the age of the student. Contact Nancy to discuss. Parents/guardians are also responsible for reimbursement of music and theory books provided to their child.
The teaching schedule varies between summer and school-year schedules. Please discuss individual needs with Nancy.
Lessons are taught in my home, which is located just inside the northwest corner of Loop 610. Parents are encouraged to sit quietly during the lesson, but are not required to do so. Please do not bring or drop off other children who might be disruptive during the lesson.
RHYTHM AND THEORY WORKSHOPS
I conduct a group workshop once a month at a building or church close to my home. These are fun sessions intended to teach and reinforce rhythm techniques and music theory. They help students to connect with other students of different ages and capabilities. Guest musicians and performers are sometimes invited to work with the group. I strongly encourage all students to participate. There is no additional charge for attending these sessions.
To discuss lessons, please complete and submit the following information, and you will be contacted shortly.
