Private Music Lessons for All Ages & Abilities

My dream come to life. A music studio where everyone is not only welcomed but accepted, validated, and celebrated for exactly who they are. I use music as a tool for building confidence, so that every one of my students has the potential to believe in their own thoughts and ideas inside and outside of the studio.

Shining Reviews

Emily is AMAZING!! 🙂 My oh so shy 3 year old took to her right away and absolutely loves music class with Miss Emily! We are so very grateful to her for bringing our little girlie out of her shell!
Angela Elliot
A good friend recommended Shine to get our then 7 yr old started with piano. Emily is a very capable teacher, uses positive reinforcement well and has built a wonderful teacher-student relationship with our daughter. Maggie has come a long way with piano in just a couple of years. We’re very happy we found Emily and can’t recommend her enough!
Ken Holden
Emily is amazing. It doesn't matter what kind of mood my teenager is in when they go to their voice lessons, they come out happy. It’s such an enriching experience. Oh, and they are also learning how to sing.
Mark Bragg
Emily is so in tune with childrens' genuine needs and desires. She makes them feel valued and respected and helps them cultivate their gifts. I have two sons (4 and 6), and they simply adore her!
Julia Bloomquist
Emily is an amazing musician and fabulous with children! 5 stars, but I'd give her 20 if I could!

Noah has been in other music lessons but Shine is the best so far. Emily is just amazing and really has a way of bringing Noah out of his shell.
