MEET THE INSTRUCTOR
Miss Sara Pepper
Hi and welcome to my studio webpage! I'm so glad you've stopped by and taken an interest in piano lessons; learning to play the piano is such a rewarding endeavor!
Music has always been a very influential part of my life ~ I've been playing the piano for nearly two decades and first began teaching in 2008. I also earned my minor in music during college and got to study piano with some pretty awesome professors including Dr. Alan Weinberg, Dr. Dana Milan, Dr. E.J. Choe and Dr. Andrew Hisey. My favorite aspect of this job is seeing how much joy music can bring to my students and to those whom they share it with! I get to help them, not only enjoy music and grow as musicians, but grow as people. My students develop confidence in their abilities, which carries over to all other areas of life.
I always like to say, "Music lessons are not just music lessons, but life lessons."
