I am a professional musician and entrepreneur dedicated to sharing my love and passion of music with others. I have a long track record of teaching piano, conducting, arranging, orchestration and tutoring ear training and theory ever since I was a conservatory student myself. This lifelong vocation of mine is equally important to me as performing. As a certified Steinway education partner, I specialize in developing students to reach their full potential. Whether you are totally new to piano or a seasoned player wishing to brush up your skills, I can help you develop an in-depth experience with piano. During lessons I emphasize skill development in developing proper technique, critical thinking and listening, creative problem-solving, efficient practice, and attention to separating the different elements in the music in order to pay closer attention to detail. With repertoire, I work closely with each individual student tailoring their own custom lists with a mix of genres and difficulty levels. To encourage growth and consistent improvement, I recommend all my students to perform once or twice a year in online recitals but this is entirely optional and based on the student's comfort level. I am very patient, encouraging and supportive of my students. If you commit to making music an integral part of your life, I will open new paths of expressing yourself through music that you never thought possible. Whatever your skill level and personal goals may be, I will help you improve and enjoy playing the piano more than ever. The skills you will learn in our lessons can be applied to all areas of your life, not just piano. No two students are exactly alike so I customize the curriculum for each individual student so they can best succeed on the piano. For beginner students, I usually start off with the Faber Piano Adventure series for young students and for adult beginners the Alfred Adult All-in-One Course to teach the basics and fundamentals of piano playing. As the student progresses, I gradually add scales and arpeggios and supplement the materials by selecting repertoire tailored to fit the student’s tastes and specific goals. I encourage my students to improvise as well. For intermediate and advanced students, I address the technical needs of each student and teach the standard repertoire in the piano literature and any specific repertoire they wish to learn. Focus is geared toward bringing out nuances and improving musicianship and artistry. Piano is for anyone who wants to learn and it’s never too late to start! Lessons are available for either 45 or 60 minutes. 30 minute lessons are available only for young beginners under the age of 10. I offer a FREE 15 minute trial lesson so if you have any questions regarding how to start lessons with me, please feel free to reach out. I look forward to having you join my studio and let’s start making music together!

I credit my first piano teacher for giving me the courage, technique, and love of music that has made me into the performer and teacher that I am today. This passion has led me to receive a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Michigan, and I recently received my Master’s degree in classical vocal performance at the Mannes School of Music. My goal now is to inspire my students with the same fundamentals and joy for music that my first teacher instilled in me. Beginning students of all ages are welcome, and styles that I teach include classical and pop. Lessons will focus on technique, reading, ear training, and basic music theory. Everyone is unique and has their own learning style, and I tailor my teaching to each individual. I love to helping others understand music better, play the piano, and achieve their personal musical goals. It would be a pleasure to help you learn!

I am a professional musician and educator. I got my BA in the Berklee College of Music with the honors of Magna Cum Laude, and have toured and played in 4 different continents. My debut album, "Friendy Fire" was released on the label GSI Records and has amassed over 130,000 streams on different streaming platforms. I am among the winners of the Pathways to Jazz grant for the year 2021, and also during this year my music has been reviewed by over 6 different jazz magazines and played on the radio in 10 different countries. I have been teaching music since 2013, and have worked with private students from the ages of 4-50. I have taught both beginners and advanced college-level students, as well as whole classes in elementary and high school. I have also directed ensembles which consisted of musicians from the ages of 12-20. I can teach jazz music, classical music, pop/rock/soul repertoire, technique, ear training, harmony, theory, improvisation, and composing. My goals with students who are just starting off are to help them fall in love with the music and practice and learn about music from a place of enjoyment and love, while still going over all the proper technical and theoretical aspects. With more advanced students I go over the piano as in instrument of self expression, group dynamics, listening, and more advanced concepts such as shape theory and advanced improvisation or advanced classical pieces.
