"Music is the one art we all have inside. We may not be able to play an instrument but we can sing along or clap or tap our feet. Have you ever seen a baby bouncing up and down in the crib in time to some music?... All of us have had the experience of hearing a tune from childhood and having that melody evoke a memory or a feeling. The music we hear early on tends to stay with us all our lives" - Fred Rogers, The World According to Mister Rogers
Erin teaches lessons in piano, ukulele, and voice geared toward children and teens ages 3-18 and beginning adults. Many of her first memories of the joy and wonder of music are from the songs she learned to sing as a child. She wants nothing more than to provide this experience, no matter the ability level, for children, teens and adults with an eagerness and curiosity to learn. Erin works directly with the needs and interests of her students and highly encourages them to customize their lessons between a combination of piano, ukulele, and voice.
