Sadie has been teaching private and group piano lessons to students of all ages for twelve years. Adapting to each student's unique needs, she strives to create a fun, stress-free environment by using positive reinforcement that fosters both confidence and artistry in even the youngest of minds. Sadie encourages students to explore their own musical interests while providing them with a solid foundation in technique, thorough understanding of music theory, and skills for competency in sight-reading that will help to establish a lifelong appreciation of music.
