Patricia enjoys teaching a small number of students on Kauai. If you are interested in lessons, please read and review the following carefully, and respond to Patricia with the relevant information. Mahalo! 

  1. Ages 5 and up are welcome. I also enjoy teaching adults, whether complete beginners, or returning to the piano!
  2. An in-tune piano or 88 fully-weighted key digital piano or keyboard are required for home practice.
  3. Students are expected to practice 5-7 days per week. Students age 5-7 will need a parent or caregiver to sit with them and guide them during practice time.
  4. If you are not musical yourself but would like lessons for your child, I am willing to give you a crash course to help you guide them at home through their first several months of lessons, free of charge. This usually takes around an hour.
  5. If you (or your child) have had lessons before, I will need to know which books they used and how long they studied. An interview will be needed before we begin, so that I can see their precise level and thus lesson plan appropriately for them.
  6. Method Books fluctuate around $20 per level and will need to be purchased before we begin. 
  7. Lessons are once a week. For ages 5-6, 30 minute lessons are available. For ages 7 through adult, lessons are 40 minutes.
  8. My current price for 30 minute lessons is $33.75, and 40 minute lessons are $45. 
  9. If all of this sounds like a good fit for you, please contact Patricia at to proceed, and with any questions concerning keyboard purchase, practice, scheduling, level of student if applicable, etc.
