In a stimulating and supportive atmosphere, I offer individualized piano instruction from the young to the “young at heart.” I teach all ages and all levels from those who are just discovering the joys of the piano to the more advanced student preparing for a music career. I strive to empower each pianist to become the artist that they envision to be.
I am passionate about the importance of playing the piano for all musicians and will create a curriculum to meet your needs whether you are a pianist, accompanist, or musician for which the piano is their “second” instrument. The curriculum designed for you will be tailored to meet you wherever you are on your musical journey and give you the skills to attain or surpass your musical goals.
Hilarie began studying the piano at age of 6, culminating with lessons with Dr. Neal Larrabee, internationally-renowned pianist and UCONN professor. Here you will find her extensive experience playing and teaching piano.
Any current or future college music student will benefit greatly from studying with Hilarie. She is a gifted teacher, able to explain any musical concept in a clear and concise way, demonstrate those concepts on the piano, and provide specific methods for successful studying and practicing.
