Ford Barker - Piano Teacher

All ages and levels are welcome to enjoy private piano lessons in the comfort of your home or in a piano studio. The lessons offer a traditional approach to the study of piano -- developing a solid technique and a fluid ability to play classical, jazz, and modern piano literature.


 Its not just a piano lesson. It's a comprehensive, intensive and fun music program that integrates the study of music theory and history, ear training and sight reading into every lesson. Assignments are tailored to each student's abilities and needs.
