My name is Charles Lumpkins and I have over 15 years of experience teaching piano privately to students of all ages and skill levels. Approaching each student as an individual, I try to work with his or her musical interests and current level of ability. I have taught classical, jazz, and various other styles.
I also have performance experience, both as a soloist (classical music recitals and pop/jazz/rock/folk music in small venues), and a member of a band (swing jazz ensemble, funk and soul band, and an acoustic rock duo). Other relevant teaching experiences are 4 semesters of small group piano instruction in a middle school (CLC Charter School in State College PA), and 2 semesters of small group piano instruction at an elementary school (State College Area Friends School).
Is your schedule already jam-packed and you need me to come to you? I will happily make piano lesson house calls around the flagstaff area (travel fees based on commute time).
