About Me

I love learning, and I love sharing and developing the tools for learning. I began as a self-taught pianist at age 12, and from ages 14 to the present I have had the experience of studying with some of the most phenomenal teachers of this generation. George Katz, former chair of the Drake University Piano Department and student of the legendary artists Alfred Cortot and Marguerite Long; Jerome Lowenthal, also a student of Cortot (and William Kapell) and former chair of the Julliard piano department, and Jose Feghali, winner of the 1985 Cliburn Gold Medal have been my most influential teachers. From them, I learned how to learn, how to teach, and how to teach learning, which I believe is the most important skill.

As a winner of the 2000 Interlochen Concerto Competition, I had my orchestral debut that year with the World Youth Symphony Orchestra at 16. Following that, I have given concerts all over the U.S., some parts of Mexico, Malmo and Stockholm, Sweden, and in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Having become keenly interested in technology and recording engineering, I have produced many CD's for renowned artists, such as Joseph Banowetz, Jose Feghali, Mike Morey, Paul Tuntland Sanchez and Vladimir Ashkenazy. I also worked for two years as the recording engineer for the Fort Worth symphony, where I was exposed to dozens of symphonic scores and new works, and was able to study them while I was preparing the recordings for radio broadcast.

My interests expanded even further when I became interested in the study of memory. I felt that I was still a slower learner, and wanted to counteract this. Having taken up research into the functions of memory and retention, I became a student who, instead of spending 6 months perfecting a Haydn or Beethoven sonata, could learn a monster like the Ravel Trio and perform it in just over a week. It's these methods that I offer to my students, in full confidence that any one of them who applies themselves can, in time, equal and surpass my own efforts.

Anyone with an Xbox will quickly learn that I'm an avid gamer, and I am exploring using games in the fields of epistemology; i.e. using the naturally evolved need for socio-mental stimulation and the non-linear hypotheticals presented in games to affect the individual's study of rational and critical thinking.

*** Lesson Details ***
Music is a tool for the discovery of critical thinking as well as art, i.e. an excellent way to ready your mind for nearly all problem solving and learning. Even if you have been a prior music student, I will be able to help you advance your practice technique far beyond its current potential; my methods are original, new, and can be empirically shown to work in no uncertain terms.

I am now a Steinway partner; my students will have twice-yearly opportunities to perform at Steinway Hall, Plano, should they feel ready. These recitals will usually be held during winter or spring breaks.

For younger students, I prefer parental involvement in the lessons. The parent of a student will have more influence on their progress on a weekly basis than I can. They will be asked not only to help the student practice, but to help them practice correctly. The results of this approach can be profound. For these reasons, I ask that the parents follow the student's progress so that they can provide support for the 6 days of the week that I do not get to see the student.

I tailor my curriculum to the student, and their learning habits and interests. I draw from a wide variety of curriculum, as well as sometimes writing original pieces that focus on weak areas that must be quickly developed.

Lastly, the student's input will ALWAYS be heard and carefully considered when choosing pieces for study. The most important part of studying music is the joy of music itself. I do my very best to make sure that lessons and practice are both fun and engaging, as well as productive.

Important Note: Right now I am only teaching classical music for voice. That doesn't mean that I am not willing to supplement lessons with other styles, but classical vocal training and technique is universally applicable and should be the pop or rock vocalist's foundation regardless. Please only sign up for voice with me if you are prepared to study primarily classical repertoire. Broadway songs are also acceptable.

Steinway Concert Grand

*** Specialties ***
I specialize in training memory, technique, artistic sensitivity and the development of a musical mind. I am familiar with many methods and use them where appropriate. I will observe you (the student) and find out how you learn best, and tailor lessons accordingly, thereby using your preferred method of learning (aural, visual, or kinesthetic) to strengthen any weaknesses. Lessons with me are very fun and challenging.
