About

 I am an experienced music teacher of piano and voice for over 12 years with a degree in music from the Evergreen State College in Washington State. I specialize in multi-genre styles such as classical, pop, rock and roll, ragtime, jazz, and contemporary.  I also teach composition and song-writing. I myself have been composing since 2001 and am in the process of recording my second album.  I have been a performer for over 8 years doing regular local restaurant gigs as well has fundraiser concerts and outdoor festivals and the like. It brings me great joy to witness the my students' progress as well as foster a love of music learning. To take it to the next-level I have found a niche by  developing the personal composting style of a student if there is interest. I really recommend trying this as it is so much fun! Plus this can be a great confidence booster! I plan on offering online musical recitals to develop the love of performance while becoming inspired by other fellow musicians. Recording opportunities may be available upon interest.     Welcome to the wonderful world of music and please check out my website for more information!

   My style of teaching is a fast track learning process that once you have achieved  a certain level of musical theory, I get you into music you wish to learn. This will assure you are engaged and challenged. I have saved many-a-student time and money teaching this way and have had many successful students that have learned not only the music style they wish but also I have helped many of my students become composers, which is about finding your own personal music style. I will also be offering only recitals! 

   I use Piano Adventures by the Fabers as well as scale and theory books and music you wish to learn in the form of your challenge pieces.  All of these materials can be purchased online. 

Reviews of lessons with Mary Gossard

Mary has been a gift in my life. I love her passion for teaching and patience for growing talent. Our lessons are always uplifting and fun! I have learned so much about myself and my voice. Each lesson increases my confidence as a musician, artist, and singer, thanks to Mary!

I enjoyed learning from Mary G. I felt comfortable and confident during and after our session. When I applied the information during our session it instantly changed my performance for the better !

Mary is really laid back and puts you at ease from the moment you enter the lesson. She obviously knows her stuff!

Ms. Gossard is an amazing teacher. I have taken lessons with her for four years now, and she has been a tremendous help in my development. She helped me improve through music which I enjoyed playing in various genres. She has helped me to compose my own music, something which I never would have thought I could do. She is a patient, encouraging, and all around inspiring teacher.
