Welcome!  ​I am a piano teacher from Wilmington, North Carolina.  I teach private lessons for ages 4 through adult in my home studio.  Located off of Carolina Beach Road and convenient to the Monkey Junction, Silver Lake, Carolina Beach and Kure Beach areas.

Studio News:




Studio closing: Please be assured that we are taking the Corona virus very seriously.  We will be closing the studio during the time that the New Hanover County Public Schools are closed.  I am offering online lessons via Skype and I also have resources and tutorial videos available to those students who can't access Skype.  The safety and well-being of my students is a priority and I want you all to remain healthy and happy.  See you soon!

Recital Time! We've been very busy selecting music for our Spring recital.  The students have chosen some amazing pieces to play.  I will be recording tutorial videos of their music to help them practice through the week when I'm not with them.  This will help them have the best performance possible and I'm confident that they'll all do great!

February Students of the Month: Congratulations to Hadley and Jack, who won our January practice challenge by practicing their assigned pieces every day! This is their third month in a row! Way to go, you two!

Honorable Mention:  These students worked hard and had some weeks in February in which they practiced every day!  They are:  Addie, Elizabeth, Caelyn, Coryn, Mael, Shiloh, Mia, and Zidane!  You're developing some wonderful practice habits, so congratulations to you all!  Keep up the good work!

New Student:  Let's welcome Addie to our Grace Note Family!  I believe Addie is going to make wonderful progress!
