Private Lessons

Private piano lessons are offered for ages 5 through adult. Students must have a piano or keyboard at home for practice. Instruction is on traditional acoustic pianos and can be provided as needed on digital MIDI instruments. Lessons normally cover keyboard familiarity, basic technique, music-reading and repertoire. Interested piano students have frequent performance opportunities in recitals, festivals and/or contests. Faculty memberships include: Fort Worth Music Teachers Association, Texas Music Teachers Association, Music Teachers' National Association and National Federation of Music Clubs. The Texas Christian University School of Music is an All-Steinway school.


Individual instruction for the beginning or more advanced student, with focus on the fundamentals of vocal technique. Includes breathing and breath management, freedom or production, registration, resonance, diction and artistic interpretation. Opportunities for recital performance provided. Private voice students must be at least 12 years old.

A 60-minute weekly voice class is offered for children ages 9 to 12 years. The focus of the class is for students to achieve breath control and production of a pleasant and consistent tone without stress on the vocal folds. In class students will learn to sing parts in rounds and canons, diction, sight-singing and ear-training.
