Hello! My name is Ann Baker Mendenhall. With more than 35 years of experience in piano teaching and performing, I provide award-winning instruction to my students. I am motivated by my love of music and the passion to transfer my knowledge and skills to others so their creativity and talent can shine.
I teach young people and adults at all levels, from beginners to advanced, in private and group lessons. I also enjoy mentoring student piano teachers.
Joy in Accomplishment and Love of Music are my goals for my students.
I believe that piano studies should be enjoyable, built on a solid technical foundation, inspire creativity, and match each individual's goals.
Learning an instrument — and especially, the piano — has many proven benefits. Playing music both assists in children's development and enriches the lives of adults.
