About Bernadette

I've had lots of success working with youth, ages 5 - 15 and adults, and have been working out of my home piano studio as a private piano teacher for over 25 years. If you need help with reading notes (sight reading), or would like to take piano lessons (flexible schedule) over the summer, you are welcome to get in touch with me. I will consider new regular openings for summer and fall, 2014

I am also available to tutor in reading, writing and proofing papers and assignments. I am the mother of three older children and have had lots of experience helping my own children in the last 12 years, as well as serving as a school volunteer in the elementary, middle and high school grades.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

Piano

I have over 25 years' experience teaching piano lessons to both adults and children. I teach piano from my home studio in Laytonsville, MD. Piano has always been my main instrument with an emphasis on classical music. I took eight semesters of piano lessons at the Trinity College Department of Music with Antoinette M. In addition I took courses in music theory and piano pedagogy and performed in a senior student piano recital to fulfill my requirement for a minor in music performance.

Reading

I was born and raised in the United States; however, my parents were both immigrants and I am sensitive and patient with people who are not native speakers and readers of the English language. I am qualified to help adults and children with sounding out words and with reading comprehension. I would be honored, and look forward to working with you to become a fluent reader in the English language.
