About

instilling a love of music

Teaching all ages for Over 15 years

Adrianne has been teaching beginner to intermediate piano and voice to children, teens, adults and seniors for over 15 years. She specializes in preschool and early school-aged piano, using the modern, game-based WunderKeys Method. See more details on her methods below.

Her philosophy on music pedogogy is to instill a curiosity, sense of ownership and love of music in her students. Adrianne strives to provide a comprehensive music education, while encouraging the students' personal interests. She has a patient, individual needs-based approach, and makes learning music fun and motivating.

Music gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination and life to everything.”

Private lessons include occasional group lessons, which builds a sense of peer membership, adds variety and interest to private lessons, and are an engaging way to learn. Group classes cover additional theory, music history, performance, and more, with fun, interactive games and activities.

At least two recitals take place throughout the school year, which students are encouraged to participate in. This is a wonderful time for skill building and to celebrate accomplishments.

    Our granddaughter Azraelle Yerks took piano lessons from Adrianne for 8 weeks in the fall of 2017 and then took another 12 weeks after this ending in the spring of 2018. She really enjoyed them and we cant say enough about how Adrianne worked with her and later with the recitals. Thanks Adrianne.

    My granddaughter has enrolled in piano terms with Adrianne off and on since she was 6 (presently 14). Adrianne has always adapted her Instruction to meet her students' abilities and designed her teaching to inspire their creativity both in performance and composition activities. She has a wonderful encouraging approach that builds both confidence and skill.
