I would first like to say that I was born into a musical family. My Dad (choir director) and five older brothers were not only the majority of the choir in our large Catholic church, but Dad had a "tame" Frank Sinatra singing style. My mother played harmonica and piano by ear so acquiring musical intellects spread quickly to all of us. Most of my siblings sang and played instruments as we had a piano, guitar, organ, harmonica, trumpet, clarinet and a recorder to use as we pleased, with or without a music teacher.
I started singing and playing the piano at age four. With consistent encouragement from my oldest sister (a professional organist for 40+ years), I learned piano and music theory while I was learning to read English, started guitar at eight. A natural born ...
Music has always been a central part of my life. I was born and raised in Bloomington, Indiana, where I began piano lessons at the age of eight. For several summers I attended Rocky Ridge Music Center in Colorado, where I studied piano and music theory with university music faculty from across the country. In high school I played piano and clarinet in the jazz and symphonic bands and was a member of the All-State Band. I have a BA in history and French and a minor in music from Indiana University, which has one of the top-ranked music schools in the country, and a PhD in history from the State University of New York at Stony Brook. I've also worked as a piano accompanist for Dallas-area middle and high school band students competing in the UIL solo contest. In addition to ...
I am a classically trained pianist who competed in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area for 15 years (began lessons at age 5). While I do posses the training that allows me to instruct students who are interested in performance level musicianship, I by no means expect my students to desire this for themselves.
My students have different interests and each are at a different skill level. Each student presents unique challenges, goals and progress so no matter what your interest/skill level is, we will make sure you are happy and successful.
*** What you can expect from me ***
We'll speak briefly about your expectations and schedule, then formulate a plan that will help you reach your goals. Whether your goal is to learn scales by the end of the month, figure out where middle C is, or ...

Since graduating in 2003 from The Juilliard School with a BFA in Drama, I've worked steadily as a professional actress, musician, teacher, and writer, based out of both New York City and Los Angeles. In May of this year, I relocated to Dallas, Texas to be near family, and am excited by the potential of the impressive local arts scene here.
I love teaching and consider each student a gift. Taking part in minds opening and skills developing; discovering how to connect with each individual; the moment when a student's eyes light up and say "Ohhh.. I get it... its like/when..." - these are remarkable experiences to share.
Okay, to be specific about what working with me looks like! Lessons will emphasize:
1. open, honest communication
3. defining ...
Hello, a little about myself, I have a bachelors degree in Music Education from Florida A&M University and Specialist Certificate in Jazz Composition and Arranging from Berklee College of Music.
