About Me

Hi! I am a soloist, chamber music artist, and music teacher based in Las Vegas, and I currently have openings in my studio for private music students! I would love to share my love of music with you.

I have over fifteen years of experience teaching piano and harp lessons to students of all ages and levels. As a doctoral candidate at Indiana University, I have the background and capability to teach beginning to advanced students. With a doctoral minor field in music theory, I provide my students with a thorough understanding of how music actually works.

I have earned national recognition as a winner of several major music competitions, including the American Harp Society Young Professional Competition, the Anne Adams Awards, and the National Federation of Music Clubs Competition. I have also been a strong competitor in several international harp competitions. I have performed throughout the US, including at Carnegie Hall, as well as at the World Harp Congresses in Geneva and Dublin.

I have been privileged to study with wonderful, internationally respected teachers. I enjoy sharing my love of music with my students. I encourage all my students to play their best and to learn pieces that they enjoy and that challenge them, while keeping the experience fun and nurturing.

I believe that no matter what someone's goals are in playing music, learning to play an instrument teaches important life skills. Among those skills are discipline; efficiency in completing a task (or practicing a particular piece); developing strategies to approach large projects, such as a paper or a large musical work; and how to stick with something, even if it is difficult. In that vein, one of my foremost priorities as a teacher is to help my students learn to teach themselves. I seeks a balance between challenging my students and cultivating a sense of camaraderie and playful exploration.

*** Lesson Details ***
For beginning piano students, I use the Faber method.

Lessons typically include music theory. Students will be given clear assignments to practice and complete.

About Me

♪ If you want to...

1) Build a vocal technique that will not fail you
2) Have piece of mind that the SOUND you want to come out of your mouth WILL come out
3) Know that you are using your own 100% authentic sound

...then you have found the right teacher!

♪ ♪ ♪ LESSON DETAILS ♪ ♪ ♪
Most teachers "vocalize" or "warm you up" for 5 or 10 minutes and then the lesson is spent just singing through songs with no real emphasis on how to execute awe-inspiring and healthy singing.

Working with me is a truly distinctive experience, much like a workout with a trainer (Don't laugh because I'm a little over weight!). We will spend the hour working on very physical and specific exercises to build a comprehensive technique that will support you through any genre of singing. At the end of each lesson, usually about 15 minutes, we can work on your chosen repertoire. Utilizing both vocalise and song literature that you choose, we will go through very pragmatic and utilitarian methods that will generate an easy, free and uniquely individual sound.
