Private Lessons with Judy

I strive to make every lesson a positive and fun experience for the student. I'm very patient, excellent at explaining things at a child's level, and I try to make each child feel relaxed and comfortable. My students will tell you we laugh a lot during their lessons.  However, I can be firm when necessary, but only in a positive way. If a child is having a problem I help them get to the root of it, and teach them the proper way to practice. That being said, I do expect students to practice and to be motivated to do so at home. Positive reinforcement goes a long way! Piano lessons for one member of the family must involve the whole family!  I understand that every student will have busy weeks when they haven't practiced much or at all. It happens and we just go on from there. But if it becomes a habit, that's when we need to work together to get the student back on track.  There are lots of ways to motivate a student. I can help!

My students have included people with  disabilities, professional musicians who want to grow, adults fulfilling a lifelong wish, and more. Each person's progress is their own and is not measured against other students.

Let's work together to give your child (or you) a wonderful gift that will last their whole lives- the gift of making music! Half-hour and hour lessons are available at my red piano in my West Haven home or online.

All About Me

I am a Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter who loves to share my joy of music with others. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music and a Masters's Degree in Elementary Education. I present concerts year-round. I also write musicals!

Since starting as a professional Piano Instructor in 1985, I’ve been privileged to see so many students discover their natural skills and abilities and reach results they never dreamed were possible.  My students play professionally, play for fun, and some of them have gone on to be teachers themselves.  All of them have developed a skill that brings them joy throughout their lives. 

I was born and brought up in Maine and now live on the west shore of Connecticut with my husband and three rescue pets. Our daughters are based in New York and both work in the entertainment field. I believe in giving children wings!
