Piano Lessons with Kathryn
I have been a piano teacher for over 40 years. I presently teach in my private studio located in Belmont, MA. I also teach at the Powers and Lexington Music Schools.
I am comfortable with and committed to teaching students of all ages, and I believe in guiding each student through the process of discovery. The wonderful feature of this approach is to nurture the student's fundamental capacity to: "learn how to learn." This is a skill they can apply to anything they will study in their lives.
My basic philosophy is to encourage progress and advancement through positive reinforcement. I strongly emphasize reading skills, as well as knowledge of music theory. These analytical skills enhance the student's ability to comprehend the score and play with ease and confidence.
Students are encouraged, but not required, to participate in workshops and recitals held throughout the year.
I teach adult students of all levels. Although one of my specialties is working with adult beginning piano students, many of my adults are professionals.
