    Sheila has always had an interest in piano. She has been teaching it for over 15 years and currently serves as a substitute pianist/organist at St. Mary's Church in Barnesville. In addition, she takes classes in music at a local college, has been an active member of the Music Teachers National and State Associations for 5 years, and has been president of the Frederick County Music Teachers Association (FCMTA) for 3 years. Being a member of the music associations allows her students to have the opportunity to participate in performances, adjudication recitals, state level theory testing, and musicianship testing. Prior to becoming a piano teacher, she worked as a nurse for 11 years and spent 8 of those years as a Naval Officer in the Navy Nurse Corps. She loves teaching piano, and her goal is always to make it affordable, fun, and enriching for students of all ages!

    Rastall Music Studio is a home-based family-run piano teaching studio. We enjoy teaching children the fun of playing the piano and of understanding what they are playing. Our students spend an hour at the studio each week, followed up by home practice. Students have a traditional piano lesson then a session in the music lab. Read more on our web site. We enjoy teaching adults who wish to revisit the joys of playing the piano by refreshing knowledge and expanding literature choices. For adults who have never experienced the fun of piano lessons, we introduce music reading and playing as easily as possible. The Rastalls have been in Frederick, Maryland for 15 years and have been adding to the community’s wealth of musicians. We have been teaching piano for 40 years and enjoying every minute of it!
