It is a pleasure to share my love of music with my students. I have maintained a private studio since 1991 and have had the privilege of teaching students as young as three and as mature as eighty-three years of age. I have taught students who have studied for pleasure and enrichment, and students who have studied for careers in music. I enjoy sharing the gift of music with my students, and I strive to provide a learning environment that is positive and fun. My goal is to teach students to be excellent musicians so they can enjoy and express themselves through the language of music throughout their lives.
Mrs. Hopkins’ Education and Experience
I have maintained a private piano studio since 1991. I have a Bachelor of Music degree in Pedagogy and a Master of Education in Teaching Music from Bob Jones University. I have served in church music ministry since I was a teenager. I have also taught violin, handbells, choral music, band, and general music in private schools.
Lessons are given on a Bösendorfer grand piano at my Shrewsbury studio. Families and students have an online Studio Account and unlimited access to the iPad app, Piano Maestro for home and studio use. Lessons are enhanced with technology such as iPad applications, and Music software. Students are offered the opportunity to participate in the Royal Conservatory Performance Exams, and the National Piano Guild Auditions. All students are encouraged to play at the studio recitals.
