I love teaching piano. I have studied piano for over 20 years. I teach group piano at the Senior Center of Rockville for a music school, and I have taught piano privately to students from age 6 to 80.

My goal is to have fun with music and to find melodies that mean something to you as you play. I provide the first book for free.

I teach only in my home near Roots Market in Olney which is very close to the ICC..

Great tutor!

Laurie helped me correct my pronunciation word by word. She is such a nice lady and prepared a lot of materials for me. I think I will keep in touch with her for a while to improve my spoken English.

Liping, 7 lessons with Laurie

Professional and patient

Her tutoring for a foreign student on ESL/ESOL were well organized, and is helping my children fit into the class. Also went out of her way to help us arrange a perfect location for the tutoring. Well worth the fees! I am sticking with her for a while.
