Piano lessons for children ages 5-18 and preschool music classes available!
"If you are looking to refine your skills or learn something new, I would highly recommend taking lessons with Morgan! ~Bethany, 2019
We have several children taking piano lessons from Morgan, and we are extremely impressed by her musical ability as well as her skill in teaching. She is very motivating and encouraging to each student and connects well with each different personality. We have five students (ages 5 - 18) taking lessons from her right now, and she is excellent at working with a wide variety of ages and skill levels. My children really enjoy playing the piano, and we all look forward to seeing her each week! We give Morgan our highest recommendations! - Jonathan & Kara, 2019
Thank you for being such a great teacher! You are very skilled at teaching the small details that I think make the difference between an okay pianist and an excellent one. The thing I most enjoy about playing piano is playing a song that I really like and have learned well enough that I can add dynamics, feeling, etc. - especially when I have worked really hard on a song that was extremely difficult for me. I love being able to put it all together and play it over and over. I love getting to the point where a song is no longer "just notes", but also full of feeling and very musical. - Kaitlyn, 2019
If you are looking for a piano teacher, I highly recommend Morgan! She will come to your house like she does ours. Her personality fits so well with our children! We have been wanting the children to have piano lessons for quite some time, but schedules, timing, and the right fit had to be part of the equation. Morgan Showalter has played the piano for the annual Sadie Rose Candlelight Service from the beginning. She now teaches piano and will come to your house like she does ours! I don’t need to do any running, I don’t need to find something for me, or my three children, whichever one is not practicing at the moment to do while the other one is having lessons. Her personality fits so well with our children. If you are looking for a piano teacher, I highly recommend Morgan. - Regina, 2017
Teaching piano is my passion and heart's delight! I have been teaching piano since 2013 and have an established studio here in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia.
I am an officer in the Harrisonburg Music Teacher's Association, pianist for the annual Sadie Rose Foundation candle lighting service, and have 8 years of experience on church worship teams. I authored the Play by Ear online course that teaches the fundamentals of piano chords to begin playing piano by ear.
I have completed Kodály Level 1 classes through James Madison University, summer 2019. I have also participated in the Shenandoah Valley Children's Choir for 5 years and have experience in solfège, singing, and sight-reading.
I have studied under Andrea Baileys, Maurita Eberly Hanford, and Dr. Lori Piitz at James Madison University. I also completed the one week intensive Injury Preventative Technique Workshop under Dr. Barbara Lister-Sink in Winston Salem, North Carolina.
