Private Piano Teacher

Let me take a moment to acquaint you with my background in music and my experience in teaching the piano. Growing up I studied the piano for 16 years. Most of this was Classical music, though I did play in a Rock group for one year (keyboard) and I studied Jazz piano for 6 months privately in college.

I attended Western Kentucky University on a music scholarship and a Presidential grade scholarship for 2 years. I then transferred to Northern Kentucky University, on a music scholarship and received my degree in Music Education, being certified to teach Kindergarten through grade 12. I graduated Magna Cum Laude.

My Senior year in college, I tackled the job of teaching both private and group piano lessons in both Roselawn and Bond Hill Schools, while my NKU piano professor took a 6-month leave of absence to go to Spain. I also took over her private students in Mt. Adams.

Summarizing my teaching experiences:

  • Mary Queen of Heaven School in Erlanger – Initiated an after school program for both private and group piano lessons for one year
  • Kiddie Campus in Taylor Mill - Initiated a group piano lesson program for one year
  • Junior Music Evaluation - Prepared students to compete & judged this contest
  • Northern KY Federation of Music - Prepared students to compete & judged this contest
  • St. Anthony School in Latonia - I accepted a music substituting position for 6 months, while the music teacher was on maternity leave. I taught grades K-8 music education and incorporated Classical composers and music theory in the weekly lesson plans. Additionally, I structured and set up a music education program for grades K – 8.
  • St. Anthony School – Prepared, organized, rehearsed and ran the May First Holy Communion service.
  • Kenton County District Reflections Contest - Judged the Music division, grades Primary through High School.
  • Played the 9 AM church mass for St. Patrick’s Church for 2 years
  • Teamed up with St. Patrick Church’s Director of Religious Education (Mimi Trenkamp) and we initiated & ran the St. Patrick’s Christmas Eve Children’s Choir and Gospel Play for 7 years.
  • Played the organ and piano for weddings
  • Accompanied other instruments in weddings and contests.

Additionally, I offer my students an annual Spring Piano Recital.

I have served Northern KY and Greater Cincinnati students for over 25 years.
