Greetings from Washington DC! Welcome to the Ruth Rose Piano Studio. I am a concert pianist and piano teacher with over 30 years experience. I teach very young children as well as adults, from beginners to advanced students, but the approach is really one and the same: to develop an enjoyment of music for oneself and to encourage sharing this precious gift with others.
Right now there are openings in my studio for new students. Most kids start around ages 6-7 but I’ve taught them as young as 4. My students learn music in a supportive environment with great attention paid to finding repertoire they have affinity with, to maximize their enjoyment of music. Students get tools to learn how to practice independently and become musicians in their own right. We get along, we learn, and students get to perform several times a year.
Many of my adult students have returned to the piano after a long hiatus, others are beginners. Adult students also have opportunities to perform if they wish. I will work with you to find a rhythm that allows you to combine piano with professional obligations.
My students stay with me for years, as they see clear, tangible progress. They are always excited about all the new music they get to discover! My rates are compatible with those of other reputable music teachers in Northwest DC, and I do my utmost to offer flexibility to fit today’s busy school and work schedules. Lessons take place at my studio near Van Ness metro.
Call me at (202) 256-9598 or e-mail me so I can answer any of your questions or to schedule a trial session.
