For piano, I have worked with beginning and intermediate students. I have a lot of experience working with young students because of my Kindergarten through fifth grade music job as well as older students because of private teaching. I like to make music as fun as possible through theory, listening activities, and a fun lesson series. I like to use the Alfred Lesson series, Faber Piano Adventures, and A Dozen a Day as well as other books that would meet the student's interests and needs.

Music has been a part of my life since I was very young. Growing up in a musical family, I started piano lessons at age 5 and oboe at 11. I went on to get my Bachelors in Oboe Performance and Music Education from the University of Central Florida. I enjoyed studying music so much that I continued on to get my Masters in Oboe Performance from the University of Cincinnati, College- Conservatory of Music. I then studied oboe performance for one year in the Doctorate program at Rutgers University, Mason Gross School of the Arts. After Rutgers, I moved back to Orlando where I began teaching as an Elementary music teacher and taught private lessons for students in Orlando. I have been an elementary music teacher for four years now and have taught private lessons for the past 11 years. ...
