Fall lesson Scheduling—the fall schedule is out! If you haven’t confirmed your lesson time with me, please do so asap!
The first two weeks of lessons for Sherwood students will be held in my home studio as we’re waiting for space to be available in the South Loop. Please let me know if you need a change of lesson time for those two weeks. I’m sorry for the inconvenience!

Notice: All students have been invited to choose a movie or a song from a movie to start working on in lessons. We're going to do a Music in the Movies Recital this fall, projecting images from your child's favorite movie on a screen behind the piano to accompany each performance. Fun! Make sure you know what your child is planning on playing and keep an ear out for it during home practice!

If you need to reach me urgently, I am available via text only between 9am and 9pm, Monday through Saturday. Otherwise, please e-mail me!

I currently have openings at FaithSlaker Music in Noble Square. If you have valued your time with me, please pass along my information!


Just for fun: Ms. Aubrey's Suzuki Piano Book 2 Graduation Recital, 1986, age 7!

Rosie’s First Piano Lesson! I thought this was fun for those of you who would like to see how far you’ve come!
