I have been teaching young children for many years and will take beginning piano students as young as 5 years old. While I was a public school music teacher, I used Orff-Shulwerk strategies for teaching music. This approach to music teaching and learning is appropriate for preschool through middle school grades. These strategies are based on the way children learn: sing, chant, clap, dance and keep a beat on anything near at hand.
About Jill M.

I have been a professional musician for over 40 years and have taught beginning piano and oboe privately and in group classes. As of March 2021, I am fully vaccinated and have allowed students to come back into my studio who are vaccinated. Upon entering my studio you will be required to remove shoes and clean hands. Masks are required for those that are not vaccinated. Your lessons should be fun, exciting, and challenging so I will teach to your abilities. I also use music apps and games that keep students interested for longer than just sitting at the piano ( off-bench activities). I believe that all children are inherently musical and the study of music can help a student in all aspects of their life, not just music. *** Studio Equipment *** In addition to the standard music stands, metronome, tuners and music, I have digital recording equipment for student's audition recordings. I have helped college bound students get into serious music programs like Arizona State University and the University of Arizona. For students ages 5 to 9 years old, I recommend the recorder as a introductory woodwind before learning the oboe.
