I am a teacher, composer/arranger and church pianist in the North Dalton, Cohutta/Varnell, North Whitfield County and Chatsworth, Georgia areas. My home studio is located near Northwest High School and the New Hope Schools, and the Chatsworth location is at Spring Place Baptist Church. I have 20+ years teaching experience, and 30+ years experience as a church pianist. I currently serve as pianist at Cohutta First Baptist Church.
My background involves studying with several teachers at an advanced level, primarily pursuing classical training and hymn improvisation, including two years with Stephen Parker and the acclaimed Elizabeth Buday at Shorter College in Rome, Georgia.
I teach and encourage my students to play a variety of styles, including the genres they love. Lessons are fun, and we often record videos to post on our YouTube channel.
In addition to teaching piano, I also write piano arrangements and have sheet music available in levels from beginner to early advanced. My arrangements are great for teaching, and many include teacher duets. The intermediate level and up pieces are congregation tested - I play them every week as offertories at my own church. You can preview sample pages, view video and/or play audio files on every piece - be sure to check out my Sheet Music page. All pieces are instantly available digital download, and unlimited reproduction studio licenses are available for some products.
