JillHanrahan, NCTMHanrahan Music StudioColorado SpringsColoradoMy first piano experience was at age 6 on an old player piano in our home. Pumping the pedals and producing the amazing sounds of Stars and Stripes Forever and the William Tell Overture hooked me on piano!
I’ve been teaching people of all ages, abilities and disabilities for over 20 years. We can all benefit from music and playing an instrument or singing. Some students benefit from one on one instruction, others enjoy a group setting.
Making music is a very personal experience. Valuing what makes it important to each student creates a “safe” learning environment.
