I love teaching piano through Simply Music! I’ve been teaching this method since 2012, and it’s wonderful sharing the gift of piano in such a natural, fun and exciting way.

Playing piano has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I learned initially by copying my mom who played piano, and later learned to read. I’ve performed at senior centers and synagogues, and taught music in school and Sunday School. For several years, I was a music director at summer camps and taught musical theatre through the Improv Playhouse in Libertyville.

Having a Music Education degree (piano major) from the University of Illinois, I was trained in classical music and later studied and learned jazz. After teaching traditional piano for awhile, I took a detour and discovered the world of commercial music. I became a lyricist and professional wordsmith, and put my piano teaching skills on the back burner.

Upon discovering Simply Music online, I became intrigued.  Imagine teaching students to express themselves musically — through both creating their own songs and playing instantly!  The idea of teaching students how to play immediately was exciting.  I decided to teach part-time, and I’ve loved it.  My students have a good time too!

I teach students of all ages in my Highland Park home. My schedule allows for a limited number of students on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. Feel free to contact me about attending a free Simply Music Intro session to learn more. You can reach me on my cell phone: 847-630-1174.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
