Teaching since:
2000

I am a classically trained pianist with a Bachelor's Degree in Music earned from the University of Central Florida. I also have vocal training and much experience with writing original music.

I have been teaching private music lessons since 2000 and I am excited to further build my teaching studio in South Florida. Since 2008 I have been teaching in Los Angeles and am relocating to South Florida to be closer to family this August, 2018. I am currently accepting new students in Broward and Palm Beach county. I am available for online lessons until August 1st, 2018. From August, 2018 and after I will be in living in South Florida and will be able to teach in your home, in my studio or online as well.

I am a very dedicated teacher and I have had students stay with me from age 8-18. I organize at least two recitals a year and I have done competitions with my students and often help them prepare for auditions and school performances as well. I am a passionate and experienced teacher and also a performer myself. So I enjoy helping students learn music and also embrace performance if that is their goal! I look forward to meeting you and sharing lots of music education with you and/or your child. : )

Experience

Private music teacher
Feb 2000 - Present
Self-employed music teacher

~In 2000 in Orlando, Florida I started teaching piano at a music shop called "Music Shack". I taught at Music Shack from 2000-2008.

~In 2003 I graduated from University of Central Florida with B.A. in music and my specialization and primary instrument was piano.

~In 2004 I also started teaching at a piano store in Longwood, FL where I rented space and students came to me for lessons.

~In 2008 I moved to Los Angeles, CA where I got a teaching position at a music store called "Guitar Merchant".
I started teaching voice and flute in addition to piano at guitar merchant. I worked there as a teacher until 2015.

~2012: I joined the Music Teacher's Association of California and I currently participate in their yearly piano evaluation exam called Certificate of Merrit. Certificate of Merritt is a well rounded music evaluation program designed to help motivated students move through a more structured music learning program. Upon relocating to South Florida I intend to join a similar professional organization in the area.

~2014 to present: I started teaching a weekly group music class to pre-school aged students at a Montessori Preschool. I do concerts twice a year with this group. One for Holiday time in December and one for their Preschool Graduation in June.

~2015-present: I am currently on my own as a self employed private music teacher. I have students who come to my studio, take lessons online, and I also travel quite bit to student's homes for the lessons. I have a full studio of 30+ students and two group classes.

I AM RELOCATING TO SOUTH FLORIDA IN AUGUST/SEPTEMBER, 2018. I am accepting new students in Broward and Palm Beach County. I am looking to build a full and thriving music studio in the South Florida area. I look forward to speaking with you. Please call or email me with any questions you have! : )
