Piano, Music Performance, Music Theory, Organ
I am an experienced musician and teacher with a sense of humor, who can relate to people from all walks of life because of all my varied positions. I have been a music teacher in the public school system, taught piano and organ privately at my studio for many years, had numerous positions as a church organist and choir director. and worked for a professional music organization as a Production Editor. I grew up in Chicago, then moved to Colorado and later Montana. In 2005, I moved back to Chicago and have been here ever since.
I have attended Chicago State University, where I received a B.S. in Education (music emphasis), The American Conservatory of Music in Chicago where I received an M.M., The University of Colorado at Boulder, where I was a doctoral student in Music, and finally I received the Doctorate degree in Music Performance at The American Conservatory of Music in 2005.
In my teaching, I am totally focused on the student and what they want to learn from piano lessons. I see each student as an individual and attempt to steer lessons according to his/her needs, while at the same time sharing my knowledge and skills to enhance the student's learning.
