Meet the expert

Tina Illig, pianist and teacher

After graduating with a BS in Music Education, I taught for one year in the public school system and then turned to my passion of teaching individual piano lessons.  When I was hired as a private piano instructor at St. Francis University it was apparent I needed a way to help my students learn to read notes more quickly because I only had them for 15 weeks at a time. That's how I came to develop the Extra Skip Method of Piano Sight Reading and it has worked well with every student since then to make them good sight readers. I’m currently pursuing my Masters in Piano Performance at Indiana University of Pennsylvania with the goals of becoming a more knowledgeable teacher and performer and also with helping my students to be more comfortable sharing the music they make.
