Phyllis McPherson started playing piano at the age of seven and continued to study piano through high school and college. She earned a degree in Music Education focusing on piano instruction from Shorter College in Rome, GA. She first began teaching piano while in high school under the supervision of her piano instructor. After college she opened a studio in her house in Cumming, GA where she taught for many years. Phyllis moved to Dawsonville, GA in 2007 where she opened a new teaching studio in her home. That year she also started teaching at Ponce De Leon Music Center in order to continue to serve her Cumming clientele.
Phyllis teaches a broad spectrum of musical styles based on a solid foundation of music theory that covers reading, rhythm, intervals, chords, key signatures, as well as major and minor modes. Her goal for each student is to develop the skills to play the classical compositions of the great composers, traditional folk songs, popular music, light jazz, ragtime, and church hymns.
Music has enriched Phyllis's life and it is her pleasure to teach and inspire others to enjoy the wonderful art of music on the piano.
