I have been a professional music educator for the past 25 years, providing music lessons to students of various ages. My specialties are teaching piano and percussion and I have performed professionally as a jazz and cocktail pianist and as principle percussionist with the Rhode Island Symphony Orchestra. I love all styles of music and have dedicated my life to helping others learn to share in the joy of making music.
I consider myself a motivator, someone who quickly assess each student's interests and learning style. I am patient, yet passionate about the success of each student and consider it my job to help each one realize his/her own talents. I am highly organized and aim to be a model of integrity and reliability for my students.
