About Leslie

I have owned and managed my own store front and studio since 1971. I also go to homes and teach the Home School children at the biannual co-ops. I offer private and beginner group lessons. All ages and all levels accepted for Piano and Organ; I prefer beginners for guitar so I know they will be off to the right start learning to play!

All lessons are Monday through Thursday as I am well aware of the importance of free weekend time. I am available mornings into the evening for those who work. Children should be at least 5 years old to start, but first grade is preferred as it is better for THEM.

I have been teaching for 44 years. I keep up wit hall current music genres so students get to play current music as well as the learning pieces and classics.

I have been doing art restorations in all mediums since I was young-I am the trash to treasure specialist in my area restoring composition, plaster, china, wood and canvas back to museum quality.

Music is a gift you will have your lifetime. Teachers are only the guides, but YOU make the music happen (or not). You are the captain of your own ship-if you take directions and follow through, you can go anywhere you want! I give you the skills-it is up to you to apply them. Like riding a bike, if you learn now, it should stay with you forever!
Adults, learning at ANY age is the same-if it is new, I teach it the same way. It is never too late to try!

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.

Guitar

I have been instructing Piano, Organ and Guitar since 1971 at all levels, all genres of music and from ages 5 to 83! I prefer to teach guitar from Beginners up to fingerpicking. I was performing at age 16 and was asked to teach because of my abilities in so many styles. I still offer Classics, Jazz, Latin rhythms and all current music I write to fit the ability of the student. Guitar Students learn how to play melodies, not just be background chord strummers (but they can learn that too). Counting is a must for the sight reader so all students will be able to play anything they can read-that is the tool for life! Music is 50% the correct letter/key and 50% the correct count-don't pay for a teacher who doesn't make you count!
