Meet Miss Shirley

Mom_Headshot2My 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.

• Just a note to tell you what a great job you have done with the boys. I am delighted they are getting a greater insight and appreciation for music.

• Thanks for getting Maximilien off to such a terrific start.

• You have been so kind. Sean totally enjoys playing piano nowadays, thanks to your patience and teaching skills. It is amazing how well Sean can play piano now. I just hope I can find a piano teacher in LA as good as you. Sean will always remember you as his first and best piano teacher.
