My name is Brenda Bowers, and I've been teaching piano for almost 40 years - yes, I really did start when I was 12!  I started teaching my baby brother, then the neighborhood kids, then our church community, and it just grew from there.  I love music and piano, and I love sharing with students how fun music and playing the piano can be, even more! 

I studied music education at DePauw University.  When I finished that, I met my guy, Bruce, - we've been married 30 years and live in Papillion, NE.  I have been blessed with 4 amazing kids and many different animals over the years.  

My other interests include anything my kids are involved in, serving in my church, yoga and jogging, and traveling to new places (preferably with a warm, sandy beach!) 

Please check out my mission statement on this website, as well as my studio policies.  If you are interested in lessons for you or your student, I would love to meet you and talk with you about lessons at Papio Piano!  You can fill out the Contact Form on this site, and I will get back to you within just a few days.  You can also visit my Facebook page - just search for Papio Piano.  

I look forward to meeting you!
