I teach students how to identify melodic and harmonic intervals by having them hear specific distances of pitches in their minds and matching that to their voices singing those pitches. I guide the student by positively reinforcing each step until mastered. I use the piano for melodic dictations and both piano and drums for rhythmic dictations.

I teach various styles of music including standard classical repertoire and popular pieces.

Lisa was fun and I really appreciated that she was down to earth and attempted to make me feel comfortable. She gives great compliments that encourage you to keep trying.

My son has been taking piano lessons with Lisa for more than 6 months. Lisa is a great teacher. She is very patient and knowledgeable. She's able to correct my son's problems. I've seen tremendous growth and improvement on him since he's been studying piano with Lisa. Lisa is also very willing to work with us on scheduling issues as well. I would definitely recommend her.
