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 and seriously started my own piano studio in 1992, after I'd married my husband, Bruce and had my first child, Chris. Now I have four kids, most of them grown and gone, and two very sweet dogs who love to listen to my students play!
My other interests include anything my kids are involved in, serving in my church, yoga and biking, 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!
