Rose C.


Offering In-Person and Virtual Instruction

Ms. Rose believes that music has universal qualities that enrich and heal our lives.  Piano lessons bring added benefits of self-expression, concentration and coordination (among others) as well as lifelong skills and enjoyment to children and adults alike.  Known for her patience, Rose helps students hear the beat of their own drum and find success in the rhythms of life.

Ms. Rose has been teaching private and group piano since 1997 in both traditional and Suzuki methods and holds a masters degree in Education from National-Louis University in Evanston, IL.  She formerly taught traditional and Montessori elementary education around the Midwest and is certified and experienced in both Suzuki piano and special needs including many brain/focus, auditory, and coordination issues.  

Rose is past Chair and current member of the National Federation of Music Clubs’ Wisconsin chapter, past Treasurer and committee Chair of the Northeast Wisconsin Piano Teachers’ Forum and a member of the Suzuki Association of the Americas.  

Rose works carefully with individual needs to build strong foundations, enriching experiences and overall confidence.  All ages and stages are welcome, 4 through adult, and can start at any time during the year.

I'm Rebecca, and much of my life has been spent in the metro Detroit area, where I pursued my passion for music. I obtained a B.A. in Music from the University of Michigan, and my musical journey led me to play the viola with the Grosse Pointe Symphony and sing with the Detroit Symphony Chorale & Chorus and other professional choirs.


As a member of the American String Teacher's Association, I've had the privilege of playing with various orchestras and ensembles, including the Weidner Philharmonic, Sheboygan Symphony, Waupaca Area Orchestra, Green Bay Civic Symphony, and the KlezKats klezmer band.


When it comes to teaching, I believe in helping my students discover the patterns and natural flow of music. My diverse expertise in voice, strings, and piano allows me to create a personalized and one-of-a-kind learning experience for each student. I draw from different traditions and pedagogical methods, always ensuring that the lessons align with the student's individual goals and interests.


When I'm not making music, you can find me spending time with animals, indulging in creative pursuits (always with an orange touch!), or shopping for new fun footwear. I'm excited to share my passion for music with you and embark on a musical journey that will be both enriching and enjoyable. Let's create beautiful music together and explore the wonders of the musical world!

I'm Pamela Terry, and I'm thrilled to share that I have over 30 years of teaching experience. When it comes to my teaching approach, I like to keep things diverse and engaging. In my curriculum, I use various series to ensure my students receive a well-rounded musical education. I'm all about encouraging my students to explore their interests, so they are always welcome to bring in any music they'd like to play, in addition to their lesson books.


Twice a year, I organize group lessons, creating a supportive environment for students to perform in front of their peers who are at a similar level. These sessions are invaluable as they help my students develop recital etiquette, discuss the strengths of each performance, and get comfortable playing in front of others without feeling overwhelmed by a large audience.


Over the years, I've had the pleasure of teaching around 30 students, and I'm delighted to say that many of them would share that their favorite part of our lessons is the element of surprise with prizes! I firmly believe that learning to play the piano should be both educational and fun. To keep my students motivated and excited, I've incorporated games into our lessons. By earning points during their learning journey, they get to redeem prizes, which always adds an element of excitement and motivation.


The driving force behind my teaching is my boundless enthusiasm and love for nurturing young musicians. Witnessing their progress and passion for playing the piano is incredibly rewarding, and it's what keeps me inspired and dedicated to teaching every day

Hello, I'm Stephanie Zinkel! I earned my music education degree from the University of WI - Green Bay, and my passion for music has led me on an exciting journey. In the past, I had the pleasure of teaching general music to grades K - 8, which was a fantastic experience. Presently, I am the Director of Music and organist at a local church, where I get to share my love for music with the congregation.


My journey as a piano teacher began in 1997, and it has been a wonderful and rewarding path ever since. When it comes to teaching, I firmly believe in tailoring my approach to each student's unique needs and preferences. For beginners, I provide a solid foundation using method series and supplement their learning with enjoyable and fun books that keep them engaged and motivated.


For intermediate and advanced students, I encourage exploring a wide range of piano repertoire. We dive into traditional pieces, as well as more contemporary and familiar songs, allowing students to connect with music they love. I believe that a diverse repertoire helps my students grow both musically and creatively.


Throughout the year, I offer my students opportunities to showcase their talents through recitals and competitions. These events not only boost their confidence but also foster a sense of accomplishment and joy in their musical journey.


I'm excited to share my knowledge, experience, and love for music with you. Whether you're a beginner eager to learn the basics or an intermediate player aiming to expand your musical horizons, I'm here to guide you every step of the way.
