Welcome to the Piano Parent Portal!

This page is dedicated to everyone enrolled in my studio, including my teen and adult students, in addition to piano parents. If you’re not yet a member of the studio, please make sure to also stop by my Piano Lessons page.

I update this page and the links referenced periodically. Let me know if there is anything I can do to make this page better. Enjoy!

MyMusicStaff Access

You can register for in-person and online lessons using this tool. When choosing a lesson slot, please look at the icon: If the icon is a church, that is an in-person lesson at Central Methodist. That can be converted to an online lesson if necessary. If the icon is a camera, that is an online lesson run from my home. That cannot be converted into an in-person lesson.

Policy – Updated July 2022

Give Feedback

I’ve set up a separate page for this that you can access by clicking below. It could be a conversation you want to have or something that might help me in my teaching. It could be to offer a testimonial or review. Whatever it is, I’m always grateful for feedback, because teaching is a never-ending learning experience.
