Hi, my name is BreAna Shaw, and I have been playing the piano since I was 5 years old.  I had a private studio that I maintained for four years before coming to Utah State University. 

Learning to play the piano can be a great way for a person to communicate his or her thoughts and feelings.  As a teacher, I try to make my students realize that playing and performing can be fun.  Also, everyone has the potential to learn.  There are many things you can expect from me.  I will help each student to learn the different aspects of the piano, including technique, theory, aural skills, and musicality.  I strive to teach in a way that is fun and keeps it interesting for the student.  One of the things that I have enjoyed as a student from my piano teachers is their dedication and excitement they have for music, and I incorporate that into my own teaching.  The expectations I have for my students is a consistent practicing schedule and a desire to learn
