Eight years private teaching experience, including three years adjunct teaching experience at the University of Louisville. Graduate Student at Salem College in Injury Preventive Keyboard Technique. This “sabbatical” time for me is to gain a deeper understanding of the precise physical instructions for compelling music making and to build an all-ages, in-home piano studio on my lovely Steinway grand. While working with children is the mainstay of my studio, I am open to working with all ages and all types of students, including adult students and older beginners. I also have experience accommodating students with a multitude of learning disorders. I’ve had extremely successful piano students in the past with autism, processing disorders, dyslexia, visual impairments, and other conditions. Music making is for all! Goals are always individualized and adjusted as we go. A love of teaching and the learning process is what energizes and inspires me. I look forward to working with you and your family!

Scarlette Kerr is a native of Virginia and moved to Winston-Salem in 2018. She has a Master of Music degree in Piano Performance and Pedagogy with an Emphasis in Injury-Preventive Keyboard Technique from Salem College and a Bachelor of Music from James Madison University in Piano Performance with an emphasis in Accompanying.
Scarlette’s piano studio, Music at 906, emphasizes learning how to hear and “audiate” music as one learns to hear and speak a language. Inspired by the work of Dr. Edwin E. Gordon’s Music Learning Theory, Scarlette prioritizes “audiation” as an essential skill in learning how to make music through singing and movement away from the piano, and improvisation at the piano.
She also focuses on healthy motor skill development using Dr. Barbara Lister-Sink’s Lister-Sink Method, a researched-based, step-by-step sequence of introducing fine motor skills to the piano. Scarlette is also a Nationally Certified Teacher of Music through the Music Teachers National Association.
