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
I am an independent tutor in the North Hills
of Pittsburgh, PA, serving special needs students K-8. My tutoring is guided by

child, please contact me! Thank you, Amy Evens Phone: 724-935-0163
