"Excellent music skills are best developed in a positive, nurturing environment, and I approach teaching with patience, humor, and mutual respect. My students gain confidence through consistent preparation and performance opportunities. I work to give my students the practice habits and problem-solving skills needed to be successful independent musicians, so they can enjoy a lifetime of music without a lifetime of lessons."
-Jessica H. Boone, teacher and owner
Piano Lessons for Children
Jessica teaches a "traditional" approach, which means that music reading and playing skills are introduced together from the start. Students of Boone Piano Studio range in experience from Beginner to Early Advanced. A child can start traditional lessons as young as 5, with the necessary encouragement and guidance of a parent directing daily practice. Jessica loves working with beginner pianists; one of the most rewarding aspects of teaching is helping students establish good habits for reading and playing from day one.
Piano Lessons for Adults
Adults of all ages and experience are welcomed. Piano study is an excellent way to expand one's concentration, physical coordination, and artistic creativity. Jessica's adult students are busy, accomplished professionals who use piano study as a way to make time for themselves.

Jessica tailors assignments to each student using classical, popular, and jazz repertoire. Students who enjoy what they are playing are motivated to practice! Students typically work on multiple pieces of repertoire for 2-3 weeks at a time, and are expected to memorize repertoire in preparation for recitals.
Music Theory and Musicianship:
Students learn scales and develop their sight-reading skills; both are required for the Music Development Program examinations. Jessica uses the music notation software, Finale, with students who are interested in composing their own music.
Students learn how to count rhythms with confidence, read music fluently, and define and apply musical concepts. Students receive weekly written instructions to guide them through their practicing at home.
Jessica provides concert tickets to students for a professional music performance during the academic year, for their music enrichment.
