Hi, I’m Holly.
I’ve been teaching music to little kids for 45 years!
While raising my own six children, music was part of every day, and it has impacted all of our lives. It’s been a way to connect, a way to express emotion, and to have tons of fun!
In addition to years of experience, I have received pedagogy training through Seattle Pacific University and through Suzuki, Classical and Contemporary music theory through Utah Valley University and Bellevue College, and am currently studying jazz piano. I’ve composed symphonic, piano and vocal music for religious and secular use, and piano repertoire for infants all the way through advanced students.
I’m the owner and developer of Little Bird Piano Academy, where I teach parents how to teach their children music, similar to the way we teach spoken and written language. Parents learn how to better connect with their kids through music and play, while learning piano, theory, improvisation, technique and composition along with their kids. They learn to be patient with the learning process, just as they naturally wait for their infant to speak her first word.
And kids have lots of fun, while their brains are being developed for a lifetime full of learning.
