Hi! I am a classically trained pianist originally from Syracuse, NY. I graduated from Allegheny College in Meadville, PA where I studied piano under Professor Alec Chien.

Piano is an amazing instrument that opens up the musical world in unique ways! Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to recognize notes and rhythms and as time goes on you'll be able to read (and write!) music and perform a polished beginner piano piece. I specialize in Suzuki style, and have a baby grand piano in my home studio. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!
