If you need an experienced pianist in Whatcom County, someone who charges reasonable fees, I hope you will consider me. I play piano, violin and viola and can help you learn those delightful instruments as your teacher, or as your coach who works in tandem with your teacher. I teach adults and children (starting age 8). i can coach you in your musical interpretation, besides be your accompaniest. I recently did that for a man who is in his 5th year of violin study. He wanted to play Violin Sonatas and I played the piano part with him and coached him in his home in his violin technique and interpretation. His wife plays cello. It was a joy to introduce them to chamber music.

A have a good background in music theory and history, a WA State Teaching Credential in Music and English. I've been a musician all my life and love it. I have played for every kind of church service, weddings, funerals, and musical theater. I once had 28 piano students and love teaching. I am newly retired from teaching HS English and moved to Sudden Valley in Bellingham in early 2018. I am available most days & evenings for accompanying jobs, teaching and coaching. PrePandemic I played Violin I in Skagit Symphony. Even during the Pandemic I have been able to play Violin, Viola, and Piano in chamber music groups and pick up orchestras. So far I have not taught remotely. I feel comfortable teaching in my home or yours as long as we wear good masks that dont slip down, the whole time we are together.

i have to charge extra if the music you give me needs to be altered in any way such as cutting and pasting, transposing , adding to it, etc.

I play classical and popular music. I don't play by ear. I want my music. : )
