The method books I like to use with younger children are either the Faber Piano Adventures or Bastian Piano Basics.
Each week the student will work on pieces from the Lesson, Theory and Technique Books which complement and reinforce each other. I will add a Christmas book in season, and other fun books or sheets that interest each individual student. I will also introduce scales and chords when they are ready.
I like to use the Faber Accelerated Course with older beginners. It moves at a quicker pace and will have you playing pieces you enjoy and recognize in no time at all!
I also like to incorporate music that you are interested in playing.
Adults and busy teens have the choice of a half hour weekly lesson or a 45 minute bi-weekly lesson.
For students who have progressed to level four I suggest a 45 minute weekly lesson. I continue to stress technique and theory but design the lesson based on your goals and musical taste.
If you've taken lessons in the past and have a different method book you like, I will be glad to use that. Whatever level you are at, I will move at a pace that is comfortable for you to make playing the piano a fun and rewarding experience!

I offer private piano lessons during the school year at my Manheim Township Home in Lancaster, PA.
I was so very happy with Annette’s piano lessons. I learned so very much and felt so comfortable with her. Not only did I learn a lot, but she boosted my confidence and always made me feel comfortable learning. As a senior citizen, it was very hard to gather up the courage to learn and she made it a pleasure.
Annette is a wonderful, talented and caring piano teacher. She helped me learn to appreciate the instrument and to be able to play for personal enjoyment. Her attitude was always encouraging and she helped me find music written at my level for all kinds of songs I wanted to play. I am so grateful to have had Annette as my teacher. I highly recommend her!
I was a student of Miss Annette’s for over two years. I started when I was 6 years old. At first, I was nervous, but Miss Annette was patient and made learning the beginning of piano fun. She gave me a chart and stickers. Every time I practiced the length of time I was assigned, I got to put a sticker. When it was filled, I got to pick a prize from Miss Annette. I was very sad when she told my mom she was moving. I hope you pick her as your piano teacher.
I want to thank you for the piano lessons you gave me in my seventies. I really enjoy playing every day.
