JoAnn holds a Bachelor of Arts Degree with a Masters in Piano Performance. As a Concert Pianist, she learned the discipline and rigor required to master an instrument, spending hours each day in practice. It is this discipline that she seeks to pass on to her students.
By teaching classical music technique and encouraging her pupils to maintain a regular practice schedule, JoAnn elevates students to develop their skills to their maximum potential. At the same time, she is not afraid to have fun, or use positive reinforcement to inspire her students to believe in themselves.
Over years of teaching, JoAnn has had the pleasure of guiding many students to concert-level performing, several of whom have gone on to receive four-year scholarships, and many more who have continued to cultivate the piano, and the art of music in general, as vital elements in their lives.
