My name is Shirley Schwartz and I have been a piano instructor for many years. I studied both with private instructors and at Berklee College in Boston.
I have taught all over the country, previously in Massachusetts, New Jersey, Washington and California. I now have a studio in my home, serving the communities of Bee Cave/Lakeway/Dripping Springs and Austin.
My specialty is early year and beginning students. I love teaching children from public, private, and Montessori schools. I also enjoy working with adults and offer a discounted rate for seniors.
My method combines theory and technique in both classical and popular music. I primarily use the Shaum, Alfred, and Faber and Faber courses of study as well as solo pieces to coincide with holidays and students’ individual interests.
