Piano is my main instrument. I studied everything from Chopin to Duke Ellington to Buena Vista Social Club. I teach any style.
In piano, we will begin with simple music designed to build strength and dexterity in your hands. We will focus on learning note reading from the beginning, so I must strongly recommend that young children are able to track words, if not already reading. I use the Alfred's basic piano library series, starting at the primer level with very young students. I typically will use the Lesson, Solo, Technic, Theory, and Activity books available at each level to give every student the most comprehensive music education while building their piano playing ability. Additionally, I love to work with each student to meet his or her own personal goals. I cannot wait to meet you and get started!

But above all it's important to me that you have fun! So let's get started -your dreams are within reach!
I am a professional musician and educator with over 15 years of teaching experience. My students have won music competitions and scholarships both nationally and internationally. I approach each student as a unique and promising artist. I help them set individual goals, then plan and prepare lesson materials tailored for what he or she intends to achieve. I encourage them to work hard, dream big, and enjoy the rewards of learning and performing music.
