Private Piano Lessons, Voice Lessons & Tutoring

My Teaching Philosophy

My teaching method is through careful explanation, demonstration, repetition and patience. I believe that everyone has music to share, and that music is a great way to relax, express yourself and heal. It is important to me that your lessons are fun, and that you feel comfortable and relaxed while we learn to perform, sing, play. My students and I tend to laugh a lot during our lessons or study sessions, and I strive to help you reach your goals. I also believe in forming a close relationship and connection with each of my students (and their parents) to help them to be the best they can be. Communication is essential to success.

Ask Anastasia about fife lessons on 6-hole or 10-hole fife
