Guitar and Piano Lessons for Delaware, Maryland and Pennsylvania!

I am a guitar and piano instructor who specializes in teaching children, starting at age four. I would like to have the opportunity to work with special needs. I offer the convenience of coming to people's homes, and if the child is physically incapable of playing an instrument, I can also come to the home just to sing and play songs. I am willing to offer Homeschoolers $25 a half hour for the first child and $20 a half hour for each additional child. Lessons for Mom and Dad are available for no additional charge. My service area includes New Castle County, DE; Cecil County, MD; and parts of Southeastern PA. I truly believe in the benefits of incorporating music into people's lives starting at a very young age and would love to spread the joy music brings to families around the community.
