"I'm super excited about adding technology and incorporating so many great ideas from these webinars!" Sara Pepper, Piano Teacher, Indiana
Hi, I'm Tracy Selle. A Christian wife, mom, piano teacher, and author of 101 Piano Practice Tips. I'm also the creator of Upbeat Piano Teachers. I've been teaching piano for nearly 15 years and prior to that, I was TV meteorologist. What?
Yes! It's actually an important part of my background because it helped me create The Upbeat Piano Teacher Webinars. It's the perfect way for me to merge my 2 loves: teaching piano and working in television. My goal is to inspire other piano teachers and hopefully their enthusiasm will impact students across the globe!
In my spare time, I love to read, crochet, and hike with my family. I'm also a Virginia Tech graduate and an advocate for Type 1 Diabetes. My son was diagnosed with Type 1 Diabetes in March 2010.
At Upbeat Piano Teachers, it's not just about an online course. It's about supporting teachers and working together. I love working together to inspire and motivate one another every single day. I can't wait to get to know you!
