Teaching Studio

renditions_logo_125pxMelissa Smith, Piano Teacher

My teaching approach is to foster a love of music in children and adults through study of piano literature. I'm a classical pianist by training and believe that every student should learn traditional keyboard technique (scales, theory, finger dexterity and independence and classical music terminology), but am very flexible on repertoire. I believe that classical technique can be applied to any piece of music and that finding repertoire that inspires a student is key to their success.
