Terri Pine-Wallace currently has turned to composing. She encourages and helps students to develop, notate and write their own music as well.

Her belief is that children should have music in their lives and experience the joys of a one-on-one meaningful relationship with an adult who will encourage and instill the benefits of setting goals, doing one's best, achieving success, and cultivating a love of music. This will spill over into all areas of their lives, both academic and social.

The Piano Studio of Terri Pine-Wallace offers diverse teaching styles to compliment the needs of students from beginner through high school. She also accepts adult students. A myriad of teaching materials are used to provide a stimulating experience for the learner. Lessons are either 30 or 45 minutes in length. The studio also stresses incorporating the study of music theory and sight reading. The importance of sharing music with others culminates in one or two recitals each year.
