About Margaret

I graduated college in 1978, went "on the road" until 1980, then returned home to private teaching and performing. I opened my own music store in 1986, selling major piano brands and running a teaching studio until 2006. At that point I gave up doing retail, but still continue to teach and run the teaching studio, currently with 11 instructors.

I started a "Twilight Career" in 2011, teaching public school music in southeast Massachusetts. I currently am the Choral Director at a local high school and continue to teach privately. I look forward to teaching online, as well as in person, to help students progress in their skill levels.

I have 35 years teaching and performing experience. I currently teach 7-12 Chorus, Piano Class, Theory and Composition, Music History electives, and Guitar 1. I continue my professional development at prestigious universities in the Boston area.

I am very flexible in scheduling online lessons Monday through Thursday and will consider small group lessons. I limit my in-person private lessons to Tues/Wed/Thurs from 3 to 5 pm. I cannot promise to make you a "star", but can promise that you will improve your skills, learning proper technique and tools.
