Goals


I focus on helping each student become a well-rounded musician, not just an accomplished pianist.  Lessons include ear training, sight-reading, theory, music history, improvistion and technique work in addition to core music performance skills. ​

Carole Crawford:  
Are you looking for piano lessons in Kirkland?  I'm a serious teacher with high standards for students--and high expectations for frequent laughter!
 

I am a new piano teacher in Kirkland and have opened Vagabond Road Piano Studio.  I chose the name Vagabond Road because I love travel and the outdoors--it's the lure of what might be around the next corner that always pulls me forward.  Music has always been at the core of that adventure for me.  


Granted, my piano will not fit in my backpack, but the experiences and friendships that have grown out of studying and performing music have shaped every step I've taken on my journey in life.  

Philosophy


Everything about music should bring joy, especially the study of music.  Although the core of my teaching is based on the traditional fundamentals of classical piano study, my goal is to help each student discover and create in the musical language that speaks to her or him.
