My interests are to build connections, community, and a relaxed,

Locations and Instruments

In the forest...

Boeing Creek Park is perfectly magical, quiet, and shady. Listen here!
...or on The Lark's Nest Music Studio patio in Ballard
I am eager to enjoy the outdoors as much as possible, now that our beautiful summer days are here! And that includes making music out in nature as well. After over a year of being limited to only ZOOM lessons, I am excited to see my students in-person once again (with safety measures still in play) only made possible by the portability and versatility of this not-so-little electric piano.  

What a wonderful surprise to discover this instrument! I would recommend it for all those who are not ready (yet) to invest in an acoustic piano or high quality keyboard. This instrument ticks all those boxes for me:  reasonably priced, full 88 keys, weighted keys, decent sound, plus 'all the bells and whistles' and recording/playback capabilities.

And I can take it anywhere - to the forest, your backyard, on a sailboat, on a camping trip. Oh, the places you could go!
It will make in-person and outdoor lessons, as well as piano camp/band/jam opportunities, a welcome change for this summer. Join me in trying out all four!
...or on ZOOM
Keep in mind that ZOOM is still an amazing resource to stay connected and continue music study. Things just keep getting better and better with improved sound, screen-sharing and creative resources to enhance learning. I am constantly learning new and fun approaches to make learning happen virtually and becoming much more technically savvy. We will make sure you have all the tools you need to optimize your lesson time.

So, if ZOOM is your only mode of learning for now, let's get
zooming!

The instruments in Burien
IMG_7820.JPG
I am immensely pleased to offer lessons on these magnificent instruments in the spacious sanctuary at Glendale Lutheran Church in Burien this summer. It is actually just a hop, skip, and a jump from The Lark's Nest Music Studio - about 20 minutes south depending on the time of day. Wednesday lessons during the day are devoted to in-person piano and organ students at this location.

The Yamaha grand piano is acoustically 'divine' to play and a wonderful instrument for both beginning and seasoned pianists to experience. When most home instruments are keyboards, consoles, or uprights these days, it is a rare opportunity to have hands-on access to learning and performing on a grand piano.

With pipes on three sides of the organ console far up in the organ loft, one is truly immersed in the sound and majesty of this 3-manual, 43-rank 
Möller organ. Learn what you and all those buttons, knobs, keys, and pedals can do and discover how the organ is truly the king of instruments!

Thank you for visiting The Lark's Nest Music Studio.
I look forward to making music with you!
