I am a pianist who has many years experience as a live performer, and also hold a Bachelor of Musical Arts degree (classical music) and an Associate of Arts degree (contemporary keyboards). I enjoy teaching students of all ages and levels, and also appreciate many styles of music. I encourage students to develop strong keyboard technique, improvisation, reading, and music theory/ear-training skills. Good practice habits are the key, and my enthusiasm motivates students to develop the discipline necessary to progress quickly.

Excellent Teacher

Charlyn is a very warm and sensitive teacher. She exhibits gentle toughness and she knows her stuff!! I'm so glad to have her as my teacher.

Annette, 16 lessons with Charlyn

Very Patient

Charlyn, has consistently shown professionalism, enthusiasm and patience in teaching our boys how to play the piano. Each week she goes over and beyond in keeping their attention and helping them learn in a calm manner. We enjoy her kindhearted spirit as she shows them new techniques and insists on them perfecting the ones they previously learned. Charlyn constantly leads by examples with high, yet attainable expectations that push our boys to the next level. We highly recommend Charlyn for anyone searching for an instructor with poise, a wealth of knowledge and sincere passion for her craft.
