Ambler Teacher Brings Out the Music in All

Piano teacher offers lessons in her Upper Dublin Township home.

"There's a music in every child, and every child can know the joy of making music at the piano." - Francis Clark, famed piano teacher

 This quote is finely displayed on Joanne Prescott's own webiste. The Ambler teacher of piano, voice and violin lessons was recently featured in the Times Herald.

 Prescott’s been teaching music for over 35 years, to those from age 4 to the mid-80s. She said she taught herself piano and continued her education as a music major at Nyack Missionary College.

 “I even got to sing on stage at Carnegie Hall and play on Leonard Bernstein’s private piano,” she wrote on her website.

 She said to the Herald that she feels she’s “refined her skills as a teacher over time” and she’s “able to key in on body language to see if a student is building confidence with the music.”

She wants to continue to offer lessons in her downstairs studio, which is a part of her Ambler home in Upper Dublin Township. She said she’s already taught hundreds of students there, and welcomes more.

“My goal is to have everyone her loving music,” she said in an interview with the Herald.

“Seeing the joy on somebody’s face when they’ve accomplished a difficult piece and they know that they’re doing it well” is her favorite part of her job.

For more information on lessons from Prescott, visit her website or call 215-643-3582. A registration form is available online at this link.

On her website, Prescott states her goal quite simply.

"Everyone who leaves my studio, leaves loving music and is prepared to be a professional musician or just enjoy playing for his or her own enjoyment, and therefore we 'Keep the Music Playing,'" she said.
