She also obtained a Bachelor of Music in Interdisciplinary Studies; and Master of Arts in Music Business from Berklee College of Music, Boston.

Lyn began her teaching career at the age of 16. Realizing her love for teaching, she continued teaching through college and has maintained a steady studio for over 30 years. Trained as a classical pianist, Rousay applies her discipline and skills required to instruct beginners to advanced piano students.

She records accompaniment tracks for vocal instructor’s private classes as well as for students who are preparing their college and theater auditions across the United States.

Teaching Philosophy

Knowing that each student has individual goals and musical preferences, Lyn teaches to the student, not a set curriculum. Proper technique is the foundation of every great musician, and even though lessons are tailored to each student, technique is never compromised. Rousay believes that if the students are not engaged, their musical journey will not be as fulfilling as those who have been able to express emotions through their craft. The genre choices are limitless, and she gladly embraces music from any era to keep the student inspired and always ready to learn.
