Speech and Literature Appreciation Class


Starting on September 9th, I will be teaching a 30 minute* SPEECH class following my Piano Primer Class for children ages 3-12 in Conroe, TX. I accept both reading and non-reading students.

Through the course of the 7-week** class, students will memorize the poem “Daybreak” by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow and become familiar with 7 of Aesop’s Fables.


I will be teaching proper articulation and delivery as well as leading students in a thematic analysis and discussion of the literature we are reading.

On Nov. 4th, I will host a tea party*** with all classes combined as a time of fun and an opportunity for students to show parents what they have learned.

I charge $96 per student for the  8 weeks (the tea party counts as a class) paid at the first class. If you have a student in the piano class I will discount to $80 for the 8 weeks paid at the first class. ****

Have a younger child that you’re not sure is ready for the class? Try a one-class risk-free trial. If at the end of the class you decide your child is not ready, the day’s class is free for that child.

Below is an outline of the class and class objectives*****
