My Lynnwood studio, which is located near Martha Lake, is a spacious facility specially designed for lessons. It features a 1915 baby grand piano for accompaniment, hardwood floors, plenty of room, a comfortable waiting area, and all equipment necessary for lessons, including my music library and instrument accessories.
Currently, my studio enrolls students aged 6-40+ on all three instruments, Mondays through Thursdays. Besides individual lessons, students are also expected to partake in studio class, which is a group lesson that takes place every 6 weeks. This is an opportunity to practice performing in front of others as well as to learn from each other.
