Classical and jazz piano teacher for all ages teaching reading, improv, and composition

Methodology

I love helping students of any age develop an intimate relationship with music through the piano, to feel that they can learn to play and write the kind of things they like as well as feel comfortable playing a multitude of styles and genres. I love teaching here in State College and continuing to share musical knowledge!

Background

My name is Laney Willard, and I have been playing piano since the age of eight under the tutelage of various instructors. I run a studio here in State College. I maintained a full-time studio in Lima, the capital of Peru, where I taught piano to embassy and other expat families for several years. I am fluent in both English and Spanish and have much experience giving lessons in both languages.

My decade and a half of piano instruction includes working as a choir accompanist and studying at the university level under Dr. Yu-Wen Chen of James Madison University. During my teen years I focused on pieces by classical composers, especially those by Chopin and Debussy, as well as Broadway masterpieces. In recent years I have enjoyed delving into jazz and modern pieces as well. I am a member of the National Music Teacher's Association and involved at the state and regional levels as well.
